Missions Strategy

We want to move with Christ to restore hope, value, and dignity here and around the world.
We do this through five initiatives: Reaching the Unreached, Responding to Crisis, Strengthening Churches, Advocating for Children, and Empowering Women.

Missions Fund Giving

Missions Fund

Missions Fund Giving is how Bent Tree funds our Missions budget. Your gifts to missions are donations beyond giving to the general fund and extend Bent Tree’s missions initiatives here and around the world. When you give to the Missions Fund, 100% of your giving goes to support our Mission Strategy. None of it is used for overhead or staff salaries.

Missions Journeys

"As Jesus expresses his life through us, we live out his heart for the nations. We’re passionate about making a difference outside Bent Tree’s walls, whether down the street or across the ocean. People tangibly experience Jesus’ compassion as we meet their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. This opens wide the door to share the good news of Jesus."

Missions Journey Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I get a passport?

Passports must be obtained through the Department of Homeland Security. *Please note: Passports must be valid within six months after your return to the U.S.A.

Will I have to have any immunizations?

Requirements are based on your destination and provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Your healthcare provider and team leader can also make recommendations.

How do I pay for the Journey?

Participants are required to raise the necessary prayer and financial support for their mission journey. Any funds not raised by the deadlines must be covered by the individual team member. Bent Tree Missions is not responsible for covering the expenses of a team member in the event of a team shortfall. Your team leader will go over this in detail in one of your first training sessions.

What does the support cover?

The support you raise covers your travel expenses, evacuation insurance, food, lodging, visas, ministry expenses, and local ground transportation. Participants are responsible for passport and immunization expenses, personal needs, and souvenirs.

What about insurance?

Bent Tree Missions will provide individual insurance for the dates you will be on your mission journey. Although there will be limited medical benefits, the main purpose for this insurance is for emergency medical evacuation expenses. Team members are required to have their own health insurance in place for all Bent Tree mission journeys.

How do Mission Journeys fit into Bent Tree’s Global Outreach Strategy??

Bent Tree partners with national leaders, missionaries, and agencies who are seeing to it that no one misses the grace of God. All global mission journeys are linked to our long-term missions efforts. It is our desire to be a blessing to those we serve with, to be a source of encouragement, and to assist them in the ministry God has called them to in their own countries.
