Below is a short description of our various short term mission trip programs for each age group. Click on the title for a list of trips available for each category.
These trips are normally 6 — 8 weeks in length and consist of three phases:
- Boot Camp (preparing for your missions trip) — takes place on 265 acres of wooded land on Florida’s Space Coast. It provides the toughest, most complete short term mission trip training in the country. Missionary Training includes a timed obstacle course, bible and evangelism training, music, drama and puppet classes as well as basic construction. Evening rallies in a Big Top tent consist of cheers, worship and missionary speakers. Unity, discipline and friendship is built as youth train, eat and camp as a team.
- Project Phase (serving abroad with your team)— involves the team project (consisting of work and evangelism). The daily schedule also includes personal daily devotions, daily memory verse, weekly classes and evening group devotions led by the team members.
- Debrief — (preparing to return home)Teams return from their countries for debrief to exchange testimonies, compete in memory verse quizzing and receive classes that prepare each team member for the return home. The schedule is more relaxed and involves time for fun activities on the Florida Space Coast.
Preteen trips run for 4 — 5 weeks and consist of the same three phases as the teen trips (see above) with a modified schedule and curriculum adjusted to their age level. Preteen teams also travel abroad and perform a variety of work and evangelistic project assignments. Training for Preteens emphasizes responsibility, obedience and self-control.
Teen Missions also provides missions Boot Camps for Peanut Kids (ages 7-9) and Mustard Seed Kids (ages 4-6). These camps are shorter in length and involves the basics of salvation in Jesus Christ, a miniature Obstacle Course and fun activities that include an introduction to missions through meeting real life missionaries and learning about other countries and cultures.
Adults may volunteer as leaders for the teen, preteen and kids trips in addition to shorter adult only trips that travel betwteen January and March of each year. Adult trips run for approximately two weeks and most involve work with orphans at one of Teen Missions overseas bases in Africa.
There is still plenty of time to raise the financial and prayer support for your missions trip. Teen Missions will provide support letters and picture prayer cards to help you ‘get the word out’ to friends and family about your summer mission trip plans. Thousands of summer missionaries have seen God’s faithfulness and provision after taking that step of faith to register for a summer missions trip.
