Short-term missions is a win-win for eternity. Participants typically return from the field with a deepened Christian commitment while their efforts complement long-term Alliance ministries and workers.

"Short-term missionaries proved long ago that they make a significant contribution to the cause of Christ," — Peter N. Nanfelt, former C&MA president

Every year, thousands of Alliance people travel overseas to participate in short-term missions and connect with Alliance long-term missions efforts impacting overseas churches in dynamic ways!

From building churches and Bible schools to leading evangelistic services or providing technical computer support, the opportunities are limited only by your calling!

We can help you connect to any of the international ministries of The C&MA that are in need of short term mission teams.

Now what?

Envision, a ministry of the C&MA, identifies and develops missional leaders who innovate, establish, and strengthen communities of faith in key urban environments. Envision offers opportunities from trips, to internships, to leadership development, and more. All of these opportunities take place at at any one of our 22 Envision sites, from Bangkok to Miami, Spain to Guinea.

Envision Trips are short-term experiences for groups, running 7–10 days. Teams get the opportunity to serve alongside long-term international workers on viable projects in connection to and relationship with the local church. Participants get a chance to see God at work in the world, and get a taste of what it looks like to join Him.

Envision Internships are mid-term experiences for individuals, anywhere from six weeks to two years in length. Interns get the opportunity to serve under the leadership of our site coordinators, grow through mentoring and discipleship, learn a new culture, and explore if serving in urban or cross-cultural ministry is for them!
