What are Global Short Term Missions Trips?

Global Short Term Mission Trips are ministry experiences (usually 2-3 weeks) for committed Christians, enabling them to participate in cross-cultural ministry. Through these trips, God gives both individuals and families, from students to seniors, the opportunity to serve Him in amazing ways all over the world.
All Global Short Term Mission Trips are approved by the Reach Global Missions Ministry Team, which strives for these trips to be connected with our Calvary Missionaries and ministry partners. If you are interested in being a part of a short term trip, please contact the Missions Office at 714.550.2341.
