Since 1984 we have led 177 mission trips to 18 countries and taken over 4500 people
As of 2023, we will not be offering mission trips through MST Ministries.
But it is our desire to help you have a better mission trip whether it's your first trip or 30th. We'd love to chat with you and help you plan, resource, or train your team.
Talk to us! In all the years of teams, we've experienced the highs and lows of mission trips. Many pitfalls can be avoided by proper planning and asking questions.
As a youth pastor and then through MST Ministries, we have a passion for students and adults to experience missions but need to move towards more coaching than offering mission trips. In addition to taking these teams, Mark has spoken and ministered all over the world without teams.
Some of Mark's mission quotes,
"A win for the local church, missionary, and student"
"Plan well, manage better"
"You spell missions; FLEXIBLE"
We have used community service projects, surveys, children's ministry (VBS, Bike Rodeo, Sports Camp, etc.), evangelism, helped with medical clinics, and more to help the local church. Always ask the local pastor, church, or missionary, what they need help with. It's not about your program or agenda, but how to serve where you are going
A short-term mission trip can be a win/win for both the participant as well as the local missionary and location. By coordinating with the local people, you can design trips that are effective and take into account cultural differences and current needs of the location.
We believe that every person should take advantage of the opportunity to participate in a mission trip, no matter the age.
Student's Participant Manual is over 80 pages of information to help prep a person going on a mission trip. Covers a variety of topics to help your participants for only $5.00 each.
