A Practical Guide to Short-Term Mission Trips
by Scott Kirby
Equipped for Adventure is a guide for churches wanting to establish a short-term missions ministry. This book is unique in that it goes beyond simply equipping the individual for short-term missions, helping the church develop a short-term missions ministry.
After briefly discussing philosophies and considerations for developing a missional ministry, the author provides detailed steps for planning, participating, and following up on mission trips. Since there are more details to international travel, the author primarily focuses on international mission trips.
