All who are sent on a short-term trip by Bethlehem must complete our Short-Term Ministry Trip Application. This includes both individual short-term trips through agencies (such as Converge, Campus Outreach, etc.) as well as Bethlehem-sponsored short-term trips.  

If you are interested in being considered to lead future Bethlehem Short-Term Ministry Trips, contact the Global Outreach Department.

Bethlehem Short-Term Ministry Trips

Each year, Bethlehem takes a number of short-term ministry trips to bless and support our global partners and other ministry connections.

Availability for trips is limited, so applying does not guarantee a spot on the trip. You will be contacted by the Global Outreach Department once your application has been processed. All trips are ranked on a scale from one to three based upon the level of spiritual maturity needed for each trip.
