We live in a global community in which believers have access to nations and peoples that were formerly unengaged with the Gospel. Global travel no longer requires weeks or months on the seas. In fact, there are now direct flights from DFW to Dubai. In the midst of these unprecedented opportunities, we joyfully respond to the call to "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation" (Mark 16:15).
Short-term mission teams are groups of people who travel to another location (domestically or internationally) for a week or two with the purpose of making God known to a particular community. Often, these teams are linked to CBC Global Partners serving around the world. These trips are not haphazard, nor are they glorified vacations. Rather, CBC short-term mission teams carry out intentional activities (such as evangelism, orphan care, construction, missionary support, medical care, etc.) that bring hope to dark places.
