Short Term Mission FAQs:

1.  How do I prepare for a Short Term Missions Trip and what can I expect?

Most questions about how to prepare and what to expect can be answered in our Short Term Mission Trip Information Packet. We do conduct trip orientation sessions prior to every trip we take to help prepare all participants.

2.  How do I apply?

Everyone who goes on a Short Term Trip through Harvest Community Church must fill out an application. See the Short Term Mission Participant Application.

3.  Can I lead a Short Term Trip?

Leading a Short term Mission Trip requires experience and leadership. If you would like to be considered to lead or co-lead a trip, see the Short Term Mission Leaders Application.

4.  How are the trips funded?

Most trips are self-funded by the individuals going on the trip. We do allow fund raising through letters requesting support. We have an instruction packet and sample letters to help you with raising support. See the Short Term Mission Sample Letters Packet. In some cases we have financial aid available through scholarships. These are need based and can be applied for by contacting one of the Pastors or Elders.

5.  What if I have other questions?

We will be happy to walk you through the process of preparing for a Short Term Mission Trip. Contact Us
