Planning Your Mission Trip

Mission trips can be unpredictable, but following a few simple guidelines can take the guesswork out of the experience. In this interview, Heidi Hatch shares seven standards that every short-term team leader needs to know. These principles apply to any Christian mission team, whether they are planning a building project, medical mission, service team, or vision trip.

The Standards of Excellence in Short-term Mission are a set of seven guidelines for organizations, churches, and individuals. Over 75 organizations are provisional or covenant members adhering to the standards. Food for the Hungry is a covenant member.

Heidi Hatch is a Field Liaison for Food for the Hungry (FH). Her ministry team facilitates approximately 80 short-term teams each year to Africa, Asia and Latin America. Churches interested in sending a team with FH may learn more on the church partnerships page.
