Short-term missions inspire hearts and lives to be surrendered to the global Great Commission. Teams are formed at Christ Church with a passion to see God glorified among all the people groups of the earth. We go to participate as God builds His church around the world, to encourage and equip indigenous and local churches, and to learn and experience the culture. We return changed.
