‘Mission Adventures’ Hosts Short-Term Mission Trips for Churches and Everyday People

AMG International is using their Mission Adventures program to open-up short-term mission trips to everyone.

For almost 30 years, Mission Adventures has hosted mission trips for churches, doctors, ministry partners, and everyday people.

Ken Ivins, AMG’s Assistant Coordinator of short-term missions, says, “It’s the natural connection that we have from the field already. We obviously want to take our teams, those that are sponsoring children, those that are supporting our missionaries, those that are supporting our ministry, we want to take them to see firsthand the things that we’re doing.”

Teams are often created for specific purposes like a building project or a medical need, but there are other “open” teams that anyone can join.

“When we have open teams, we have people from all over the country that will come and join us,” Ivins says.

Working with Local Christians

AMG makes sure it works closely with local Christians to provide for their needs.

Ivins explains that they work hard to stay away from toxic charity.

“It’s something we really do focus on in our short-term teams, is helping the field do things their way, not ours. We step alongside what they are doing and we do it the way they want it done,” he says.
