Short-Term Missions, Lasting Change

Watch this documentary of two short-term teams and discuss your expectations for the trip.
This is Session 1 of the Round Trip video curriculum, which tells the story of two short-term mission trips, one sent from North Carolina and one sent from Kenya. The experiences of these short-term teams can help other churches prepare their own short-term missions trips.

This session can help you: orient your team to the trip you're planning; lay the groundwork for teamwork; and prompt reflections on cross-cultural missions.
