The North American Lutheran Church is, among other things, a mission-driven denomination. As such, many of our congregations have members interested in short-term mission opportunities. We encourage you to contact our ministry partners and recognized ministries to learn more about the availability of short-term mission opportunities:
Criteria for any mission opportunity include a safe part of the world and work that is non–toxic, with defined skill sets so that potential participants can realistically evaluate their ability to fulfill expectations.
Short-term mission opportunities are offered by the recognized ministry partners of the NALC — mission organizations that have been vetted by our denomination and deemed worthy of our support.
Trip leaders are comfortable with attendees who are strangers at the start of the trip. Any congregation should feel free to have one or more people attend.
