Short-Term Mission Trips

Short-term, or missions, trips serve several purposes, all of which will enable, equip, and empower nationals and missionaries to become agents of change in their nations.

A short-term trip can be to conduct a Tutor Training Workshop, a Story Approach Workshop, an EASEL Institute, an emPower conference, a Teacher In-service, an English camp or a combination of two or three. Each trip is different as each trip is designed to meet the needs of the nationals. Training for some teams will be in the US but for most it will be on the field as the main purpose is to train and equip nationals and missionaries on the field. All participants are highly screened.

All applicants for a short-term trip must be 18 years of age, complete a lengthy application with references, be a participating member of a church and come highly recommended as a person with godly character and a servant’s heart.

What is an EAC English camp? An EAC English camp is a non-residential camp, usually running for 3.5 to 4 hours a day for
5-6 days that is held wherever tutors or teachers need to reach people, in other words where their target group is.

Camps are usually held for three reasons:
     1— for practice teaching for tutors and teachers after a workshop
     2— as a jump-start or advertisement for English classes that will begin shortly
     3—to add a different dimension to an on-going English outreach or Christian school

Camp schedules are determined according to the needs and schedules of the people who will attend and the tutors on the field. Camps are interactive and communication-based. They include English classes, drama, art, music, culture cafes and sports. Short-term teams usually conduct 1 English camp a day and then build relationships with students through different activities outside of camp. For example, the team may have a time of English conversations at a local café, teach and play baseball at a local park, have appointments for one-on-one conversations in English, have a culture café  or a combination of several, all or other creative activities.

What is a culture café ? A festive time when the team shares cultural foods and songs with students and their friends and family, and the students perform English songs and stories they learned at camp. For more information, contact us
