Connect with the World — Short-term Missions Trips

Connect with the Commission
Jesus tells us in His Word to go into all the world and preach the Gospel. However, for many of us, this endeavor can seem overwhelming.

Where would I go?
How would I get there?
What would I do once I am there?

BIMI's Connect short-term program may be the answer. By joining a Connect team, individuals will have an opportunity to use their talents and abilities for the cause of Christ.

Each Connect trip is led by experienced BIMI field directors who organize and oversee all necessary details.

Prayerfully consider becoming a part of BIMI Connect. You will be glad you did.

Connect with the Mission
Connect trips are open to anyone 16 years old and older. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The total cost of each trip will vary, depending on the destination; however, the following will be included:

Cost: $3,478

Team - 10

Travel to two diverse African Countries and be a part of an amazing French Africa experience!

You will have the opportunity to minister in both Muslim and animistic cultures. We will spend a few days in Senegal to see Islamic Africa on the edge of the Sahara Desert.

Savory ethnic food will be introduced and diverse cultures will be presented as we learn of the different people groups and how to minister to them with the Gospel.

The remainder of the time will be spent in Côte d’Ivoire where we will experience another dynamic of West Africa—large urban centers and jungle environments!

June 29 – July 9, 2018

Cost: $2782.82

Join us for this trip to the “Emerald Isle!” This trip will be a working trip that will make a difference in the lives of scores of Irish boys and girls. We will be working with veteran missionaries Daniel and Beth Canavan in the Dublin area. Most of our work will be preparatory for a youth outreach. You will be exposed to the very practical side of missionary ministry. Set preparation, canvassing and participating in services will all be included. You will be able to learn from veterans what it takes to succeed on the mission field.

In addition to the work in Dublin, we will be touring for two or three days to visit the works of other BIMI missionaries and observe the differences that exist within ministry in the same small country. All our missionaries have served many years in Ireland and know the culture and challenges very well.

This may or may not be the trip of a lifetime; however, we can promise that it will be a trip that God will use to change YOUR LIFE as well as the lives of precious Irish souls.

Amazon Outreach Med-Evangelism

July 23 – August 3, 2018 (10 days)

Cost - $1570
Team - 20

Continue the mission of the Great Physician and be a part of the 2018 Amazon Team!
In July we will travel to the remote regions of the Amazon basin with a team of volunteer medical personnel and evangelists. The provision of medical care is a key which opens the door in areas otherwise left closed to the Gospel message. Make yourself a part of this team by going as a volunteer or giving towards the purchase of Bibles and medicine!

The Place of the greatest need is often the most difficult to access. Amazon’s Vale de Javari holds the largest concentration of uncontacted people anywhere on earth. We will travel by boat up the Amazon River and other tributaries, evangelizing villages in Brazil, Peru, and Colombia.

The People in the Vale do Javari are made up of three groups: the local fishing villages, called ribeirinhos; the indigenous tribes; and the uncontacted tribes. We will focus our work among the fishing villages where Portuguese and Spanish are the predominate languages.

The Purpose of our Med-evangelism Team is to work with our national pastors to evangelize villages where they are presently working and in areas in which they seek to open new church plants. The Amazon is one of the least evangelized regions of Latin America. Our team will be involved in treating people clinically through the mobile med clinics and spiritually through organized mass evangelism.

Our team will experience firsthand several aspects unique to the Amazon such as Jungle Boat Ministry, Três Fronteiras, and a day visit to Monkey Island and Dolphin Bay.

Team Leader: Sean Lunday (BIMI Brazil Director)

Participant Profile: Ages 18 to 60 men and women with a heart for missions (medical professionals welcome but not necessary)
