Is your church sending off a mission team this summer? Wondering how you can prepare them well? Check out Changed for Life — a new, free downloadable short-term missions training resource.

The curriculum is intended to equip short-term mission teams, the hosts who receive them, and the congregations who send them, to craft a well-organized mission experience with the potential to catalyze lifelong change. 

Through videos, activities, and reflections, established voices in cultural intelligence and missions Kurt Ver Beek, Jo Ann Van Engen, and David Livermore, along with writer Lisa Van Engen, have created Changed for Life to provide short-term mission teams with quality materials that engage all participants and keep long-term goals in mind. They are materials designed specifically for the purpose of doing missions well, and doing life well after the mission trip.

The videos, leader guides, and participant guides for this six-part series are available to download for free at

Changed for Life was developed by World Renew, Christian Reformed World Missions, World Renew Disaster Response Services, CRC Office of Social Justice, Communities First Association, ServiceLink, Youth Unlimited, and the Reformed Church in America.
