Life Changing Mission helps short-term missions teams get the most out of their trip and live on mission once they get back home. 

Mission trips give participants a unique opportunity to see and experience God differently than they do at home. While most people who take short term mission trips describe them as life-changing, the truth is that after they return home, not a lot changes in how they live day-to-day, and the memories start to fade. Life Changing Mission offers ten impactful devotions from Acts for short-term mission teams that will help them prepare spiritually for their trip, stay connected to Jesus while they serve, and continue to expand God’s kingdom when they return home.

The devotions will help reader connect what they are doing each day to God’s big kingdom and see how God is using them, just as he did the early Christians, to bring hope and healing to the world. Each devotion emphasizes the power of God to use weak and needy people to bring the gospel to a broken world.

  • Written by men and women who serve as missionaries and edited by Patric Knaak, Director of Renewal at Serge.
  • Includes a pre-trip exercise, ten guided devotions, and space for journaling about the unique memories, people, and experiences encountered along the way.
  • Three debriefing sections for after the return home give participants an opportunity to process all they saw and learned.
