Short-Term Mission Trips

Please contact the Missions Office if you are interested in going on a mission trip. We can help find a suitable trip for you, your family, or your Sunday School class. Many of our ministry partners would also welcome vision and exposure trips. These trips will need to be self-funded.

Short-term mission trips are designed to give people in our congregation exposure to what God is doing elsewhere, and experience in evangelizing and discipling the people of the world. On a regular basis, First Evangelical Church (FEC) seeks to provide short-term mission trip opportunities in a strategic manner that coincide with the FEC missions purpose statement: FEC Missions Ministry exists to motivate, develop, and equip FEC members to go, send, give, and pray for the purpose of proclaiming the gospel, making disciples, and planting and strengthening churches, especially among the large, unreached populations of the world. 

Why go on a mission trip?

  • To glorify God.

  • To advance the ministry of our missionaries and National Partners who are long-term in the field.

  • To exercise your faith and grow deeper in your personal relationship with God.

  • To increase your vision for the world and your burden for the lost.

  • To receive training and exposure in cross-cultural ministry.

  • To mobilize the congregation in missions by partnering with them for prayer and financial support.

  • To engage in making disciples through personal evangelism, teaching, preaching, and serving.
