Short-Term Mission Trips
Aldersgate UMC enjoys a long history of employing short-term mission teams to serve around the world. We believe that service in a context different from the one in which we live our daily lives opens us up to the receiving and sharing the grace of God in new and exciting ways. For this reason, our local mission field serves as one of the cornerstones of our mission of raising up deeply devoted disciples of Jesus.
We define short-term mission trips as Church-wide sponsored initiatives beyond Aldersgate’s local mission field through which teams of people are invited to grow spiritually as they embrace opportunities to address the needs of others through service by demonstrating God’s love in tangible ways and inviting the people they meet to become followers of Jesus.
Currently, Aldersgate plans regular trips to serve with missionaries and staff members of the following churches and organizations:
Providence Place / San Antonio, Texas
New Life Children’s Home / Villa Nueva, Guatemala
Iglesia Metodista de Costa Rica / San Jose, Costa Rica
Jose Olaya Methodist Church / Lima, Peru
Teams are forming for the Spring and Summer 2019. For more information about joining a short-term mission team here at Aldersgate, call (325) 672-7893.
