Video – Elyse Talks About Life on the Edge
A Short-Term Summer Mission Trip to Ghana
“When I was 24, I went on an adventure around the world… and so can you,” says Elyse. “Every year, thousands of college students go on short-term mission trips. Some go to build a school, some go to just travel the world, but for me, I wanted to experience what real daily missionary life was like.”
Check out the rest of Elyse’s story in this video.
Summer teams forming now!
We’ve got opportunities for college students to serve alongside field workers around the world. More than a dozen teams are now forming to go out for 8-12 weeks this summer.
Share this opportunity with a college-aged friend who might be interested in going this year or next! We’d love to meet them and see them apply.
Check out the new Edge website, explore opportunities and chat with one of our staff.
“What a joy to host Edgers! It doesn’t happen with everyone and not all of the time, but there is usually a moment in an Edge trip where the Edger is confronted with the possibility of committing their life to missions … What a privilege to be part of those light-bulb moments.” – Edge Team host in Peru
Edge Not What You’re Looking for?
Maybe you’ve done short-term missions and you’re ready to consider something longer. Or maybe you are a bit older than Elyse and would like to come alongside a ministry team without a bunch of other short-termers in the mix. Take a look at a different opportunity, Venture.
