Short-term mission trips are the best and the worst things we do in North American youth ministry.That's the first sentence in this book, and it sets the rationale for why this dialogue is so critically important. Of course, intentionality is important in all aspects of youth ministry, but since short-term missions have such a unique possibility of doing more harm than good (both for participants and those we serve), it's about time we had a more robust conversation about the good, bad, and ugly. 5 Views on Youth Ministry Short-Term Missions reflects the thoughts, stories, and real-life tips of five in-the-trenches youth workers who regularly lead short-term mission trips. Here you’ll find practical wisdom on many approaches to STMs, from work camps to urban missions to long-term partnerships with Indigenous church leaders across the globe. Appendices tackle the important topics of junior high short-term missions and the incredible value of multigenerational trips. With compelling stories and reflective questions (plus some pushback in chapter responses), the array of wise perspectives here will both affirm and challenge your thinking—and will provide encouragement and challenge as you approach short-term missions in your own ministry.
