Missions Involvement

Missions Involvement

Global Missions is a large ministry made up of thousands of individuals who have felt the call to go and spread the gospel. Do you feel called? The first step is to pray and speak to your pastor about your burden for the mission field.


Attention Pastors!  Global Missions is seeking NEXT GEN missionaries.

Global Missions is seeking NEXT GEN missionaries and is in need of you, pastors and leaders, to assist us in identifying who they are so we can help develop them for service. We encourage you to test them through your mentoring processes, give them opportunities to be involved in evangelism locally, and let them participate in the missions vision of your local church. When they are ready, let us train them and walk with them through our Short-Term Missions programs. We are committed to bringing, “The Whole Gospel to the Whole World…by the Whole Church,” and are actively providing a pathway to the harvest and creating a community of laborers. You’ve given of your finances, help us reach even further by Giving a Goer!

GoNEXT Kids -  www.globalconnextions.org/gonextkids

In an effort to sow good seed into good soil, Global Missions is seeking to begin the process of including the Alpha Generation in its missional scope. The Alpha Generation refers to those born since 2010. We are intent on mobilizing as many people in this group as possible to be “Global Christians!” Why? Because global Christians pray for the lost, they give their time, talents and resources to caring for others, and some are invited by the Lord of the Harvest to serve as NEXT GEN missionaries. Find out how your children’s ministry can host a GoNEXT Kids seminar in 2020 at www.globalconnextions.org/gonextkids.

Experience Missions

After speaking to your pastor and prayer, there are several ways that you can get involved. The best starting point is to experience missions on a trip. There are several trips to consider:


  • Apostolic Youth Corps trips - www.apostolicyouthcorps.com
    • AYC trips are through the UPCI Youth Ministries. These are generally two week trips with groups of 20-100 people.
  • International Trips sponsored by your district or local church


Short-Term Involvement

Many who experience a missions trip feel their call confirmed and seek to take the next right step. There are several short-term missions programs that provide a pathway to the harvest.
