Prepare for Short-Term Missions

When serving with missions it is important to prepare spiritually, mentally as well as logistically. We encourage you to meet with others on your team, and those who are participating in a short-term trip to pray together, go through resources and devotionals in preparation for serving. We have provided various ways for you to prepare before you leave for your trip. 


Prayer is an essential part of who CVM is, but it is also vital to serving in missions. It is important to spend time in prayer before you serve, and also vital to pray while serving. We encourage you to pray for the people you will be reaching, those you will be working alongside, your teammates and your own heart.


Serving in missions can be a spiritual battle, and you must be prepared to face whatever comes your way. Spend time strengthening your spiritual armor by walking through a devotional or joining a small group.


We have provided various resources available to you as you prepare to serve short-term. These resources include books, devotionals, trainings, and more.
