Short-Term Teams

Sunnybrook sees mission trips as an opportunity to strengthen and encourage our partners around the world. We truly desire to use the resources and the gifts we have been given to empower indigenous churches and ministries to sustain themselves, evangelize and disciple their own nations, as well as plant other churches and send out missionaries of their own as modeled in Scripture. In addition, we have found that these experiences greatly challenge those who participate to consider deeper involvement in ministry in both the world and their own communities.
