Kick-start your church’s STM program with free ‘short-term mission kit’
This Short-Term Mission Starter Kit, developed by DELTA Ministries International (DELTA), provides nearly 40 resources for prayer, encouragement, training, post-ministry follow-through, and a comprehensive referral list of more than 60 short-term mission resources.
The kit offers new, as well as proven, resources DELTA has used for many years. It was designed to help churches that are just getting started with a STM program, as well as fine tune established programs.
An effective short-term mission program requires preparation and planning for the pre-field, on-field and post-field experience. The kit includes printable materials, DVD’s, and linksthat provide resources for all phases of a short-term mission as well as an approach that adheres to the U.S. Standards of Excellence in Short-Term Mission (www.stmstandards.org).
God continues to move in a mighty way through short-term missions. What started as small groups of individuals going out a few decades back has now grown into a global mission’s movement. Within the U.S. alone, it is estimated that anywhere from 1-to-4 million people are mobilizing annually from tens of thousands of churches, ministries, and schools. God is using short-term mission teams to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ, to engage the Church in the Great Commission, and to transform the individuals serving on teams.
Our prayer here at DELTA is that God will guide churches and ministries in this journey and that this kit will help you get started.
