What is Short-Term Missions?

Our goal is to equip and empower The Church at Brook Hills to make disciples of all nations by sending sound laborers into the harvest in Short-Term, Mid-Term, Long-Term, or Marketplace pathways. Short-Term is serving up to 2 weeks on a team in another context. At The Church at Brook Hills, our approach is two-fold: strengthen the church in “reached” contexts, and establish the church in “unreached” contexts.

Short-Term Requirements

  1. Be a Christ-follower and Member of The Church at Brook Hills (or registered for our Membership Class.)
  2. Demonstrate an understanding of the gospel and biblical mandate for global missions.
  3. Have expressed agreement with The Church at Brook Hills Statement of Beliefs, our Priority, Purpose, and Pursuit, and Church Covenant.
  4. Fill out an application and submit a $100 deposit. 
  5. Agree to the Brook Hills Global Short-Term Policies:
    COVID-19 Safety Protocol (revised June 2022)
    Financial Policy and Procedures

The Short-Term Process

Step 1 - Pick a Trip and Apply

View our available list of trips and submit an application through our online Service Reef system.

If you have questions about trip details, feel free to email the team leader listed for the trip, or contact our Director of Short-Term, .

Step 2 - Pay For Your Trip

All payments will be submitted through Service Reef. A payment schedule will be given to every member signed up for a trip. Typically, team members should expect to pay 50% of the total trip due 90 days out, an additional 25% due 60 days out, and the remaining balance due 30 days out. All payments are non-refundable.

Step 3 - Get Equipped to Go

Each team will receive training and equipping from their team leader that includes Spiritual Preparation, Cultural Preparation, and Logistical Preparation. Team members should prepare to commit to be at every team meeting.

Step 4 - Go

Our prayer is as our faith family goes to serve the church on Short-Term mission, God will use these teams to make His name known. We also pray that as many go and are exposed to different contexts, God will prompt many to serve in longer capacities.
