Summer 2015 Short-Term Missions

Janet Birkmann

There are two ways to approach the summer 2015 short-term missions season: CREATE an opportunity for short-term service at your church, or SERVE as a short-term missionary yourself!

Create a Short-Term Missions Opportunity at Your Church

Is there a ministry, community outreach program, or church building project that your church could undertake if it had the help of volunteers from other OP churches or presbyteries?

In making such a need known, you are providing an opportunity for service for individuals or groups in the OPC who desire to share their time and skills with another church this summer.

  • In 2014, Providence Presbyterian Church, a church plant in West Lebanon, New Hampshire, made known their need for help fixing up their newly acquired church building, and they were blessed by OPC members from across the country who responded to the call! Click here for full story and photos.

  • Similarly, Naples OPC in Naples, Florida, requested a team to help them with local outreach, and received a team from New Hope OPC in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Click here for full story and photos.

  • OP churches and church plants in Michigan, Ohio, New York, Texas, and Wisconsin were also blessed to receive short-term mission teams in 2014!

Contact us at OPCShortTermMissions@opc.org to discuss your needs and ideas and let us help you find a team!
