Short-Term MissionsShortTermSml

Each short-term mission trip should provide long-term benefit to Christ’s Church both locally and abroad by achieving the following four-fold objective:

  • Benefiting a long-term effort by either partnering with a local, existing ministry or laying the foundation for a new one.

  • Deepening the relationship between the church sponsoring the short-term mission and the existing or newly established ministry.

  • Developing all participants’ capacity for ministry both before and during the short-term mission. This applies to both those who are sent and their supporters

  • Encouraging individual team members to walk in faith in Christ and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

There are three types of short-term missions:

    • local or in-state

    • domestic or western hemisphere

    • long-distance international

Calvary Boise is committed to long-term partnerships with a variety of local, domestic, and international ministries and church plants. To accomplish these objectives in relation to each mission outreach, locations are rotated to reoccur every three-to-five years. Therefore, not all mission trips are offered each year.


MEXICO - We desire to participate in the abundant harvest in Mexico and we are thankful for its close proximity. We are currently planning regular opportunities to go, so stay tuned for more information.

ROMANIA - Brian and Cynthia Fouts and Natalie Bridges are inviting us to join them in Bistrita next year by participating in their annual English camp. This trip will be during the last 2 weeks of July, 2019.

SIERRA LEONE - We are planning on visiting our missionaries and the villages they minister to in the first quarter of 2020. Stay tuned for more information!

Long-Term Church Planting

We desire to disciple believers at Calvary Boise in a way that lifts up Christ and His Great Commission so that the natural result is an emphasis on long-term missions. We want to send preachers of the Gospel on a long-term basis to make disciples among those who currently have little-to-no knowledge of Christ or existing Bible-teaching churches. Everyone can participate in this important cause by helping meet missionaries’ needs and supporting them with prayer.
