E3 Collective (short-term)

Embark. Encourage. Engage.

E3 Collective is an initiative of VMMissions that invites followers of Jesus to participate in healthy and holistic short-term (a week or more) mission experiences.

These short-term mission experiences focus on being and relating, rather than simply doing. We work to make it about a re-orientation to a gospel-centered, Spirit-empowered way of being and building the body of Christ across the boundaries of geography and culture. As the name "collective" suggests, these are team-based experiences.

The three Es in E3 are about inviting persons to embark on an intensive short-term team experience, encourage and be encouraged as the body of Christ in a host setting, and engage more deeply the work of the kingdom for a lifetime.

This happens through up-front training; prayer, personal reflection and group processing while on location; and debriefing and sharing with others after you return.
