Short Term Missions Trip

At Providence, Jesus is the Focus.

Because of the transforming work of Jesus Christ and his power to redeem, the Holy Spirit may lead you to pursue a short term mission trip. This is a phenomenal step, but one that should not be done alone. A missions calling, whether short term or long term, is done in the community of the local church. 

We believe disciples are made, not born, therefore the Missions Oversight Team seeks to disciple and guide people interested in missions. 

Please reach out to the Missions Oversight Team by emailing Jordan@providencewc.org for more information on missions trips in general, including short term missions and internship possibilities, as well as applying to Providence Church for support.

Lead Bible studies and be led in study by the students during morning devotionals.

Puebla

  • Role & Responsibility: We are serving the Basiles in two ways. 1) we help with orphan camp at a water park to teach them out Jesus - about 60 orphans come to the camp and for some it is the only time of the year away from the orphanage. They have fun in the pool and playing water games, but more importantly there are times of Bible teaching and learning about Jesus. 2) we help Tom Basile doing a construction project of his choosing, most likely at the Ranch in Veracruz. Recently, Christ First Church (used to be Calvary Fellowship Church), raised $335K to build a dormitory for seminary students to learn how to be bi-vocational. We would expect to help with construction or other projects to get it ready for the first semester.

All while experiencing the true life in the village.
  • Long Term Impact: See the village of Ngonine grow in their ability to be self-sustaining. To learn how the gospel of Jesus is impacting all spheres of life in this village. To maintain ongoing support of the ministry throughout the year through prayer and finances.
