Micah Missions – Short Term Mission Team

Short term trips are a great way for individuals, churches, and businesses to connect with the heart of our ministry to those in greatest need. Trips are scheduled throughout the year and typically require no specific skills or experience other than a desire to serve others.

TRIP INFO

We help you experience a city. Living firsthand among the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of urban life is an irreplaceable experience. Our housing options are located in the heart of the city, providing you with the opportunity to eat at local restaurants and discover the delights of Southern and other cuisine.

We help you learn our city. There are unique issues and problems that our city faces. There are also unique and incredible things God is doing to foster and further His Kingdom in Jackson, MS, through the indigenous organizations that operate on the front lines of urban ministry. You’ll learn what city dwellers face, and how to overcome challenging circumstances.

We help you help our city. At JVMPF you become part of the solution for our city. By offering your time, energy, and prayers, our ministry site is supported and built up to its full potential of service. You will be integrated into a variety of hands-on ministry opportunities to ensure that your time is spent supplying substantive help to God’s people in the city.

TRIP COSTS

The total cost of your mission trip $300USD per person for the week. This covers all housing, your service program coordination, and one or more JVMPF Hosts who are dedicated to your group the entire time you are at JVMPF. The only thing you have to cover are meals and transportation costs.

A non-refundable deposit of $450 is required to hold any dates!  The minimum group size is seven people.

The deadline to register and make a deposit is 45 days prior to the start of the trip.

TRIP LENGTH

We facilitate trips that are five to seven days throughout the year. We strive to provide the best trip length option for our ministry in the city and your group needs. Check out our availability calendar for open dates!
