Most missionaries’ testimonies go back to a life-changing experience on a short-term mission trip. Whether it’s your Spring, Summer, or Winter break there are many ways for you to serve for 1-3 weeks around the world with IMB missionary teams.

You can choose among opportunities for both high school teams and college students. Some trips are pre-packaged, but we are ready to work with your church, campus, or ministry to create a trip that fits your missions strategy. Whether it’s relief efforts, coffee shop ministries, sports camps or church planting, we have many ways for students to make an impact.

“I’ve worked with IMB for years. Whether on the field personally or sending students, I’ve always had confidence that we were blessed to be a part of a great team God is using to reach the nations with the gospel!”

– Brandon Brister Student Trips Leader

“The Lord was present before we ever arrived. He willingly used a selfish, dramatic, and unsteady person to radiate His love and peace to the nations.

– MeKayla Southeast Asia

“Serving with the IMB has opened my eyes to the need for people to take the gospel to the nations. Through serving I now know I am called to spend my life serving in ministry.”

– Ashley Ruth Charles Africa

“As a campus minister, I see the IMB as a true partner in our ministry on campus. When students serve in a cross-cultural summer missions experience, they return as leaders equipped to share the gospel right here on our campus. These experiences are life-changing, and often help a student determine future long-term ministry and missions opportunities.”

– Stacy Murphree Student Trips Leader
