Short term mission trips for youth groups, high school students, college students and adults to the US and International sites.
COVID Payment Protection
In order to best serve you and empower you to serve others, we're offering no-hassle refunds for all our groups for the next year. We'll work directly with you to make sure you are well taken care of. Details on this policy here.
Serve God by serving others on a mission trip!
A mission trip will not only have a profound impact on the ministry partner and community that are being served, but also on you and your group as you discover that your stories are part of the bigger story of what God is doing. You will experience God in a new and powerful way as you serve others in a new context.
More details coming by September 30. If you're interested in our trips to Alaska, you can fill out the form below to be notified when the details are posted.
Mission Trip Distinctives
We want you to have a new experience with Jesus that dramatically encourages your relationship with Him. God has things to say to you! During our mission trips, we intentionally spend time to listen.
More than just setting up a trip, we want to become your partners in ministry.
The Holy Spirit is already doing a great work in your group; it’s our role to understand your needs and come alongside what God is already doing in a unique way.
Trusted local partners
All of our ministry partners, both overseas and domestic, have a history of excellence in hosting short-term mission teams.
All of our Project Leaders have been well trained and are specifically prepared to lead each group.
More than just designing an experience for your group, we work with ministry partners that have a long-term plan for sustainability. Your team will come alongside these efforts and can be confident that your service is actually helping.
It’s important to us that your group has an opportunity to connect with Jesus and what He’s doing, both around the world and here in the United States. It’s just as important to us that your experience happens in the context of a plan for sustainability. Our long-term missionaries and ministry partners are doing fantastic work every day. Your short-term mission trip will be specifically designed to support that effort while inspiring your group’s relationship with Jesus.
Our goal is to work alongside you to achieve your mission trip goals while providing a sustainable impact wherever you serve. In an effort to better serve you, we have developed this payment protection policy for group Short Term Mission trips.
In the case that Adventures cancels a trip, a group's funds are refundable up to the $75 per person deposit. This deposit is able to be applied toward a future trip with Adventures.
Adventures will make cancelations 60 days before a trip, except for the case of unpredictable or extenuating circumstances.
In the case that a group decides to cancel, their payments can be applied toward a future trip with Adventures but are not refundable.
Groups must notify Adventures of a decision to cancel 60 days before the trip. After this point we cannot guarantee any re-application of funds.
COVID-19 Trip Guidelines
Adventures encourages all participants to follow CDC guidelines and local regulations at all times. These guidelines will likely change between now and the time of your trip. We will discuss these changes with you as part of your preparation leading up to your trip. It’s important that your group familiarize themselves with these guidelines and make the appropriate preparation before the trip begins.
Having said that, we have also established these basic guidelines for all Adventures Short Term Mission trips.
Trip participants are required to fill out a health safety questionnaire before traveling to their destination.
Trip participants are required to fill out a health safety questionnaire each morning before breakfast.
Trip participants should maintain social distancing, including in ministry. When not socially distanced, wear a mask.
Each participant should bring at least three masks to wear throughout the week.
All participants will be required to have their temperature checked by the Project Leader each morning. The Project Leader will be equipped with a temporal thermometer.
No large group gatherings. We will coordinate with our ministry partners to try to ensure that there are no large group gatherings. In the case that there are, this is done at the discretion of the ministry partner and participants should not feel obligated to attend. It’s our objective to have plenty of smaller service opportunities, such as serving at food pantries, doing work projects at churches or ministries and ministering to people in smaller groups and in a safe, responsible manner.
Most of the time this decision is made for us by local authorities. In some international cases, airlines may decide to not fly into a country. We look at government recommendations, airline activity and discuss with our partner. This, paired with our ongoing attention to CDC and WHO recommendations and regulations, usually makes the decision to cancel very clear.
