2022 Winter and Summer Mission Trips

We are going! In expectation of the Lord, The Navigators are committed to sending short-term mission trips in 2022 and we invite you to come with us. As we go, we will not act in hast. Each location will be reviewed by The Navigators to identify the security and COVID situation on the ground. Our commitment to go is in recognition of our faith, that God will do some great things this coming summer.

The deadline to apply for Winter 2022 mission trips is October 17, 2021.

The deadline to apply for Summer 2022 mission trips is February 28, 2022.

Short-Term Orientations

Navigators World Missions short-term program leaders value ethical short-term sending for long-term impact. We want to make sure that we’re helping Navigators who live and work in the countries we serve. That is why we invest in orienting our teams, preparing each one of our short-term missionaries for their trip. Select teams will complete individual training, while most teams will be required to attend his or her regional Short-Term Orientation. Please review the trip description for further details.
