Wind (Short-Term Trips)

air in natural motion, as that moving horizontally at any velocity
along the earth’s surface; any influential force or trend. 

“Wind” is the terminology we use to refer to our short-term efforts that span across the globe.  We selected this form of imagery because the wind’s influence ranges in velocity and scope but it is a constant reminder of the movement that is required to engage in the work of making God known to all peoples.  This image serves as a reminder that it is an impossibility to make God known without some sort of influential force that moves along the earth’s surface. Mission requires movement.

Find out how you can experience the wind by exploring the short-term opportunities below:  If you find one you like, then register for the trip by selecting this link.
