Summer 2021 missions trips

We’re happy to announce that World Missions mission trips are back once again in 2021. While keeping an eye on COVID-19 news in the U.S. and around the world, we’ve planned in faith and prepared for 2021 trips. We all know, especially after 2020, that nothing is certain. But we’re trusting the good hand of God and His sovereignty over our plans. Will you pray with that He will make our way clear and our paths straight?

The deadline to apply for all 2021 mission trips was February 28, 2021.

Because of COVID-19, 2021 mission trip planning entails many moving parts. Be sure to check back here for periodic updates on 2021 trips.

Trip orientations

Navigators World Missions short-term trip 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 where we send our teams.

That’s why we’re invested in orienting our teams, preparing each one of our short-term missionaries for their trips. Every applicant approved to go overseas must have attended his or her regional short-term orientation. Please review the trip description for further details.

Online training for 2021 mission trips began in March 2021.
