Connecting Short-Term Mission Trips to Long-Term Impact

Breakout from Erica Schimelpfenig | We know that youth leaders want their students to experience God, build strong relationships with each other and engage in positive service experiences through their youth ministry programs. Short-term mission trips are one way to do that. Creating healthy and respectful service experiences that connect students to the bigger picture can make mission trips more than just a one-time event. In this breakout we’ll focus on how a mission trip experience can broaden perspectives, ignite passions, expose possibilities and inspire pursuits. You’ll also walk away with ready-made tools for equipping students to consider the long-term impact.
