How to Plan, Prepare and Successfully Complete Your Short-Term Mission - For Volunteers, Churches, Independent STM Teams and Mission Organisations. The Ultimate Guide to Missions - For Individuals, Leaders, Teams and those Planning a Christian Gap Year - The Why, Where and When of STMs by Mathew Backholer.

In the last few years, millions of Christians both young and old have embarked upon an expedition of a lifetime into the unknown - to serve, witness and experience another world. Now it's your turn to take the challenge and put your faith into action, as you prepare for your short-term mission (STM) as part of the Great Commission.

The author has been on more than thirty STMs in more than forty nations of the world, spanning three decades. How to Plan, Prepare and Successfully Complete your Short-term Mission - for Volunteers, Churches, Independent STM teams and Mission Organisations has been written from first-hand experience.

The author's aim is that this book will aid you in your STM, whether you are an individual exploring the options (at home or abroad) or a church leader planning to take a group. You may have two weeks free or be taking a gap year; you may be drawn towards a particular people group or country, or are just looking for the right mission organisation to join. This book will assist you in these areas, give your firm biblical foundation for STMs and will guide you through the process, before, during and when your return home, and includes many valuable insights. The application of the truths within this book will greatly help you on your journey of discovery and exploration into new lands and cultures on your STM.
