Short Term Trips 2017

Each year, Ward takes a number of short-term ministry trips to support our global partners and other strategic ministries.

Availability for trips is limited, so applying does not guarantee a spot on the trip. You will be contacted by the Global Short Term Trip Team and Trip Team Leader once your application has been processed.

There is a $100 application deposit that is required to be submitted along with this application. If your application is approved, this will be credited towards the amount of support that you need to raise for the trip. If your application is not approved then you will be refunded your deposit.
