Trippin Short Term

Trippin’ Short Term
Short-Term Mission Trip Model
Ken McKinney

Short-term mission trips are about going and “being Jesus” is what McKinney emphasized on Saturday morning at the Compassion conference.

McKinney stressed that we live in a society that is totally out of touch with the rest of the world. While we pursue the American dream, the rest of the world is just trying to scrape together just enough food to eat today.

Mission trips open our eyes to the contrast between desperate poverty and extreme affluence. It forces us to make a decision. How will we respond to the need?

Prov. 14:21; 28:27; 31:8-9; Matt. 10:41-43; 25:40; 19:14; Mark 9:37; John 4:13-14
