VISION TRIP

5 Days

A Vision Trip consists of visiting a priority region of the country and meeting pastors and leaders of the area churches. As we observe, listen and pray, it is amazing how God confirms with the sending church which will be their receiving church partner.

CHURCH PARTNER TRIP

8 Days

Church Partner Trip

Church Partner Trips do evangelism, medical ministry, construction, Vacation Bible School, sports and recreation and leadership training or just about anything that God has put in the team’s group repertoire. One CPT option for university students is to engage in cultural exchanges with university and senior high school students. Such exchanges include sharing the role of our faith and the Gospel in our lifestyle and at work or school.

If you are a church leader, you can sign your church up for a partnership with a national partner church and start making your trips.  If you are a believer and don’t have a team to go with, contact us and we will assign you to an existing partnership team.

SUMMER MISSION

2 – 8 WEEKS

One Month Mission

A 1 month mission (This may be extended up to 2 months). This is a favorite for university students. Here you are venturing out, but not beyond your ability. You are stretching yourself. You will stay longer and experience more places and serve in more ways. It will be fairly familiar, much like an extension of the one week trip. Your language skills will likely make great strides the longer you are surrounded by native speakers. You will discover more about the place of your life in the mission of God.

MISSIONARY INTERN

2 – 6 MONTHS

Missionary Intern

This experience is a 2-6 month assignment. MIS volunteers usually live with national families and serve as specialty missionaries in a local church and its missions. You can specialize in teaching English as a second language, music, sports and recreation, and teaching nutrition and health (both physical and spiritual and emotional). These ministry opportunities happen in both public and private schools and in churches.

EXTREME MISSION TEAM

40 Days

Church Partner Trip

The team deploys for forty days to assist a national Baptist church plant a new congregation and church. These teams work in remote villages that are hard to reach and that have no evangelical church. The team will live in primitive conditions and do personal evangelism, small group Bible study, and discipleship of new believers. Team members are trained by the outstanding and experienced personnel of “Nehemiah Teams.

FULL-TIME MISSIONARY

Full Time

Full Time Missionary

VBI currently has several national and international full-time missionaries. They each have different assignments according to their gifts and callings. These opportunities go beyond the short-term and intermediate-term volunteer experience. These are missionary appointments that are designed around the specific calling and gifting of each individual missionary and the specific field needs developed by our national Baptist partner churches and leadership. If you feel called to full-time missions and would like to explore going through VBI, contact us and we will help you through the assignment and sending process. “Whatever He says, ‘Do’, whenever He says, ‘Move’, wherever He says, ‘Go’, we will obey.” “It is not my task to discover what place missions has in my life, but rather to discover what place my life has in the mission of God.

Our Guatemala National Missionaries are supported by donations to VBI to fulfill the Great Commission in their own country.
