Connect with the World — Short-term Missions Trips

Connect with the Commission
Jesus tells us in His Word to go into all the world and preach the gospel. However, for many of us, this endeavor may seem overwhelming.

Where would I go?
How would I get there?
What would I do once I am there?

BIMI's Connect short-term program may be the answer. By joining a Connect team, individuals will have an opportunity to use their talents and abilities for the cause of Christ.

Each Connect trip is led by experienced BIMI field directors who organize and oversee all necessary details.

Prayerfully consider becoming a part of BIMI Connect. You will be glad you did!

Connect with the Mission
Connect trips are open to anyone 16 years old and older. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The total cost of each trip will vary, depending on the destination; however, the following will be included:

Our visit to Costa Rica will provide each member of our team a full-circle view of the many aspects of missions and missionaries in this Latin American country. We will be visiting several different works, all church planting but with different types of ministries, in different climates, in different areas reaching different groups of people.

Our trip is a fact-finding trip. The purpose is two-fold. First, we want those who travel with us to get to know the missionaries first hand and to see the day-to-day ministry of the field missionaries. Second, we hope that each member of our group has a renewed burden for the lost world and to pray for the missionaries seeking to win them.
