You Can Start Right Now
to Becoming a Short-Term Missionary
Once you have decided to partner with PAPA's Ministries to become a short-term missionary, you need to decided if you are coming with your own group or joining one of ours. Please contact us to see current options.
for Types of Mission Work
If you are joining a current team, the work will probably already be chosen. If you are developing a team, you can work with a PAPA's representative to chose between types of projects. Groups are needed for construction and maintenance, teaching and training, as well as VBS and pastoral care. It is also possible to work directly with the mission to provide additional support to the missionaries.
As the Next Step
You will work with PAPA's to plan the location, the work, and the schedule of your short-term mission trip. As part of this, you will need to complete and return the application with a deposit. Fees and schedule for payment will be determined with PAPA's and the team leader.
What a Trip to Jamaica Looks Like
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
Saturday is the most common day to fly down and travel to the location of serving and staying.
Sunday is for worship and acclimating.
Monday through Thursday are usually filled with serving from 9am to 4pm, with an on-site lunch.
Friday is often a "fun day" to experience a local activity such as a trip to the market, the beach, or waterfalls.
Saturday is the normal day to return to the airport and fly home.
Some evenings will be for relaxing or preparing for the next day. However, others may include worship, additional projects, sight-seeing, or cultural dinners. There will be a group devotional each night.
