ACTION TEAMS are designed for groups of 5 to 15 people to serve 7-14 days alongside ACTION missionaries and ministry leaders on the international mission field! They are customizable and intended to maximize effective and fruitful outreach letting short-termers be spark plugs in existing ministries that will continue long after the team has left the field.
Each ACTION TEAM will be given specific ministry outreach ideas from the ACTION missionaries with whom they will be serving. Yet since each team has unique gifts and skills, team leaders will be encouraged to suggest ways in which their team can bless and serve the ACTION missionaries and ministries. Teams can schedule trips year-round with approval and acceptance from the ACTION USA office and the receiving missionaries. The goal of sending ACTION TEAMS is to shake team members up to the real- ity of God’s global plan and the need for workers to participate in fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 9:37). The hope and prayer is that teams will re- turn and excite and reignite their churches for missions—getting people more involved in their local church, and advocating for missions more than they ever did before!

Our opportunities of service are not expecting more than a two year commitment. You may be wondering where is the career, the forever option. ACTION strives for sustainability of our missionaries and recognizes it is beneficial to pause and evaluate the missionary’s time served on the field in ministry. During this time of evaluation and reflection with ACTION leaders on the field and in person in the home country ACTION leadership and the missionary both decide whether to continue in the same ministry in the same location or if changes are best to be made. It is also understood that not all missionaries are committing to service for their whole life. ACTION has had missionaries of all ages.
