Mission Trip Devotional Journal

For far too long, short-term mission trips have been focused on the person going rather than the people there. This has led to a poor theology of what Jesus actually said when he called us to the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 

Through the EMPOWERED Mission Trip Devotional Journal, explore a new way of thinking about short-term missions–one that doesn’t create dependence, but empowers people for generations to come!

A Note from The Author

I am not a missionary.

At least not in the traditional sense of the word. When I think of what it means to be a missionary, here’s a few things that come to my mind:

  • Speaks another language
  • Lives in another country for years
  • Works with an organization that provides some kind of community support, like an orphanage or school
  • Is “called” to do this work

And that is just not me! I have never felt a “call” to be a full time missionary. But here I am, preparing to spend a month in another country, speak another language, and work with an organization that provides community support.

Does that make me a missionary? I’m not sure.

All I know is that God has positioned me in this season of life to come alongside Faithful Servant Missions. And with the help of a few friends, I’ve created a new devotional resource all about mission work!

Introducing the EMPOWERED Mission Trip Devotional Journal!
