Short Term Missions: Your Bridge to the Mission Field

When organized prayerfully, quality short term mission trips can be a blessing for the mission field hosts and for the sending congregation. The following core values define 'quality' and the kind of spiritual focus essential for an effective STM trip:

·      SERVING IN PARTNERSHIP with Gospel centered, trusted & fruitful in country ministry hosts who approve, welcome and often are the catalyst for the vision of hosting the short term team

·      EXCELLENCE IN PLANNING and advance preparation

·      THOROUGH TRAINING for team leaders & members

·      CLEARLY DEFINED GOALS, TRIP PLANS & MINISTRY FRAMEWORK that is reasonably workable for the sending congregation, synod or association and their potential team members


We also provide expert Short Term Mission trip planning and team management tools for congregations and groups through our partnership with managed missions.

Pastoral Training in Developing Nations

Formal training is urgently needed in developing nations where the growth of Christianity has far out-paced its ability to provide theological and Biblical education. ALWM has recognized this urgent need and in response is coordinating teaching trips, praying for pastors from across North America to help.  ALWM has had teams to Bangladesh, India, Malawi & Nepal, helping local leaders to further equip pastors and lay leaders. We need your help!
