Your abundance at the present time should supply their need, so that their abundance may supply your need, that there may be fairness. As it is written, “Whoever gathered much had nothing left over, and whoever gathered little had no lack.” 2 Corinthians 8:14-15
How Short Term Missions Make a Difference
Hello, I’m Curt Moore, MNA ShortTerm Specialist, serving PCA churches, mission churches and organizations by helping to coordinate domestic short term mission options for teams looking for short term mission trips that are high impact, cross-cultural, flexible, convenient, and affordable. I come to MNA ShortTerm Missions after serving with MNA Disaster Response as a regional specialist for over ten years. My wife Kelly and I live in Orlando FL.
The purpose of MNA ShortTerm Missions is two-fold: 1-) communicate the short term ministry opportunities that exists within churches, mission churches, and other PCA ministries throughout the US and Canada; 2-) assist volunteers to find their place in short term missions by serving at one of these sites. Domestic short term missions offers you opportunities that are high impact, cross-cultural, flexible, convenient and affordable.
- High Impact: Reaching the most influential, English-speaking nation in the world with the Gospel of Christ through word and deed.
- Cross-cultural: Serving a variety of people groups, those within the local church and those outside.
- Flexible: A day, weekend, week, month, or longer; an individual, a couple, or a team.
- Convenient: Close proximity without language barriers.
- Affordable: No administrative fees and minimal travel cost.
TYPES OF OPPORTUNITIES
MNA ShortTerm Missions has several specific types of opportunities available, including the following:
Church Planting Assistance– Church Planters across the country are in need of assistance in fulfilling their vision for ministry and reach out to their communities. Teams are needed to do a variety of work such as VBS, mercy ministry outreach projects, sports camps, music camps, neighborhood canvassing projects, and more based upon the request of the church planter.
Urban and Mercy Ministries – Volunteers are needed to help with mercy ministries established through local churches and other PCA organizations. This work varies at each location and is open to all ages.
Short Term Internship Opportunities – In partnership with PCA churches and other organizations and ministries, MNA is pleased to offer information about ministry internships. These internships vary in scope of work as well as length of service.
Native American/First Nations – MNA has a number of outreach ministries to Native American and First Nation people groups. Many of the opportunities for service include a wide variety of options such as ESL classes, VBS, sports camps, etc. The project is determined by the local leadership.
