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.

CHILE

Church Construction :: Quillota :: between January and April 2016 (Spring Break possible)

Serge has partnered with Pastor Franklin and the church in Quillota for a number of years. His evangelistic and gospel emphasis has the church growing rapidly and bursting at the seams despite the discomfort of meeting an outdoor school gymnasium. The church recently purchased property in the city and Serge teams will build a large church building on the site.
Max team size: 15
Approximate Trip cost: $1,350 + airfare
Trip Length: 1 or 2 weeks
Numbers of teams needed: 4

Home Construction :: Valparaiso :: between January and April 2016 (Spring Break possible)

Pastor Tomás Yeomans, pastor in the National Presbyterian Church of Chile, is a long-time friend and colleague of Serge missionaries in Chile. After serving for a few years as pastor for a hispanic presbyterian church in Virginia, he and his wife returned to Chile to replant a church in Valparaiso that had been abandoned for 10 years. Valparaiso is the third largest city in the country with many universities, making it a strategic location for gospel proclamation. The small, second-floor apartment where they live is in very poor condition and is increasingly difficult for Pastor Yeoman’s wife to access due to spinal osteoporosis. The Serge teams will work during the U.S. winter or spring (late summer and fall in Chile) to build a first-floor apartment at the church for the Yeomans.
Max team size: 15
Approximate Trip cost: $1,250 + airfare
Trip Length: 1 or 2 weeks
