WEC Trek's vision is to provide short-term (up to 2 years) opportunities for individuals or small teams to share your faith and demonstrate God's love practically, supporting WEC ministries worldwide.
Treks involve not just the short-term participants, but also the senders and the receivers - you will be sent from your church, and you will be received as a part of a team of people involved in cross cultural ministry among unreached peoples. Experienced missionaries will prepare you before you go with orientation that will help you make the most of your trek.
In 2013, to celebrate WEC's centenary we are organising 7 special treks to areas that we're believing to begin a new work in. Click here for info on those trips.
Almost all of WEC's 101+ teams have opportunities for short term ministry, but whichever you choose to 'trek' to will ultimately lead to seeing people reached and churches planted. We'll prepare you well before you go, keep in touch while you're overseas and work through things with you and your church once you're back.
If you're interested, check if you meet these five essentials:
- You need to have a living relationship with God that is confirmed by your church leadership.
- You need to be interested in exploring cross cultural mission with an openness to have God lead you back into such a ministry for a longer period.
- You need to have a church that is willing to send you.
- You need to be over 17.
- If you are going for longer than six weeks, you will need to have medical and police checks.
