Short-term Mission Trips: Blessings in Disguise

  • Breakout Session
  • Faith Hall 353
  • March 29 2019 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Why do healthcare professionals give away their time and skills, traveling long distances to foreign cultures at their own expense, to help treat the needy? Anyone who has gone on a short=term mission trip could supply multiple reasons, many of which can have a profound effect on our attitudes toward life when we get back home. This session will consider some of the more and less obvious benefits of short-term dental mission trips, with a special emphasis on the unique perspective of student involvement.


• Grow in appreciation for how the Lord increases our faith through short-term mission trips.
• Become more aware of how students can be blessed on mission trips.
• Recognize how mission trips can open the door to sharing the Good News when we return.
