Short Term Missions
Parkside Church short term mission projects are designed to give people an inside look at what God is doing worldwide. We partner with our missionaries in 7-14 day projects that range from medical/dental work to construction. Our hope is that these projects would not only help to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people around the world, but also serve the larger work of our missionaries, opening doors for them to minister more effectively. Furthermore, we pray that those who travel on these trips might come home with a renewed zeal to take Christ to the people in their own neighborhoods.
Sound interesting? From time to time, we host informational meetings about upcoming trips, where you can simply find out more about where a particular team is going and what they hope to accomplish. After the meeting, there is an application process through which we select the team: in general, we're looking for committed Christians who regularly attend Parkside and have a growing personal walk with Christ and a flexible team-oriented attitude. Team members are required to attend all team meetings leading up to the trip and are expected to send out letters of prayer and financial support to their circle of family and friends. While it may seem daunting to serve Christ in a foreign place, God often blesses the team members who participate as much or more than those whom they go to serve!
