Short term missions

Have you always wanted to experience short term missions but never had the time? Do you feel like you are called to look for or go on short term missions in a few months from now? Would you be willing to step out in faith to share God's love with people from abroad?

More about our short term mission opportunities

Are you interested in doing short term mission trips and interested in doing one in our ministry? Let us tell you more about it! As a short term mission volunteer you will work five to six days a week in one of our Christian hostels in Amsterdam. At first, short term mission volunteers will work mainly in the café. To illustrate the work: it means preparing food, serving guests, and being a great host by creating a welcoming atmosphere. Moreover you will be trained to lead fun hostel activities for guests. Through connecting with the guests, there are many opportunities to share Christ in the café.

Short term missions: growing in faith and unity

Our ministry is not only focused on reaching out to guests. We also want to equip and prepare you for a life of ministry and service. In our short term mission opportunities, you will be scheduled for practical trainings, such as how to work professionally at a hostel and how to lead evangelism activities. But most importantly we want to help you grow in your personal relationship with God. You don’t do this alone. You will become part of a supportive community of Christian volunteers through living together in one (huge) community house. Through small groups, worship sessions, friendships and community activities you seek God together.
