Short-Term Mission Teams

Building relationships both internationally and locally with the people of Haiti, and more specifically, Grand-Goave and the surrounding communities, is one of our core values.  Team involvement of churches and groups in the work of Haiti ARISE is a great tool for building these relationships. Visiting teams partner in building projects as well as a variety of ministry opportunities. Possible activities can include training seminars, medical clinics, food distributions, evangelism, and teaching through the Technical Institute. We desire for teams coming on short term trips to see the value of their trip as a learning experience and a time to fellowship and build relationship across cultures through the universal church setting.
