Short-Term Mission Teams

Effectiveness on the mission field begins with thoroughness in the classroom.

Alongside your classroom training, your professors will lead the way, extending your classroom training to the mission field. Each team is specifically designed to advance strategic gospel efforts and expose students to cross cultural missions.

From the jungles of Brazil to the mountains of East Asia, the cities of Haiti, to the south of France, each student will be challenged to engage in missions and “get their passport stamped!”

Bevin Center mission trip participants can expect to receive the following training and skills:

  • Culture Acquisition
  • Fundraising Guidance
  • Language Training
  • Cross Cultural Communication
  • Team Building
  • Evangelism Preparation
  • Faculty Instruction
  • Career Missionary Interaction
  • Course Credit
  • Contingency Protocol Education

All trips, dates, and costs are tentative and subject to change. Spots are limited so apply early.

Students may take 44930 Applied Ministry and 33150 Area Studies: Missions in conjunction with the trips. Tuition and trip scholarships are available.

Contact the Bevin Center with any questions.

Strategize. Mobilize. Lead.
