E3 Collective

VMMissions is grateful to be able to announce a new way for us to grow and serve through short-term missions, through what we are calling:

E3 Collective
We are now ready to offer opportunities for persons ages 18 and above to participate in healthy and holistic short-term mission experiences, from two weeks to one month in length.

Collectives will focus on being, rather than simply doing. They will challenge our own works-based approach to Christianity and re-orient us to a gospel-centered, Spirit-empowered way of being and building the body of Christ. They will explore what it means to embark, encourage, and engage—building a deeper understanding of what it means to follow Jesus across the boundaries of geography and culture.

Our first place of engagement will be within the global refugee crisis. Our international partners have invited teams to serve the needs of refugees.

Consider leading or participating in one of these trips:

Mafraq, Jordan: May 15-31
Amman, Jordan: Late June
Amman, Jordan: Early July
Lesvos, Greece: August

  • God-centeredness
  • Empowering partnerships
  • Mutual design
  • Comprehensive administration
  • Qualified leadership
  • Appropriate training
  • Thorough follow-through.

(Learn more about these standards on SOE’s website.)
