Short-Term Teams

Join with the work God is doing around the world. Short-term teams come alongside Serge missionaries to assist with and complete ministry projects, from constructing buildings to leading vacation Bible schools. These opportunities are ideal for North American churches looking to partner with Serge missionary teams. For more information on any of these Short-Term Team Opportunities, contact Brad Wallace: bwallace@serge.org.

SHORT-TERM LOCATIONS

 

There are a number of ways and places for your short-term team to serve. Check back often as we continue to update opportunities.

UGANDA

Ministry Center Construction :: Fort Portal, Late August to early September 2015

Serge’s work in Fort Portal is focused on reaching women with the gospel and discipleship as they follow Christ. Emphasis is also given to building skills for income generation. A small ministry building is needed to carry out this activity. Constructing this building will free the ministry from using rented, temporary space.
Max team size: 7
Trip length: 12 days
Number of teams needed: 1

CHILE

Home Construction :: Quillota, Anytime between January and April 2015 (spring break is possible)

Serge has partnered with Pastor Guillermo and the Limache church in Chile for more than 15 years. Like most Chilean pastors, Pastor Guillermo and his family live on minimal resources. They recently celebrated the birth of the second child and have virtually no room in the very small home to put a crib. A pastoral salary will not provide for the expansion of their home—especially since Guillermo’s wife will need to take an extended leave from her job as a schoolteacher to care for the baby. This work team will add two bedrooms and a bathroom to Pastor Guillermo’s home, giving the family sufficient space for childrearing and church leadership.
Max team size: 15
Trip length: 2 weeks
Number of teams needed: 1
