Bethany Teams is a short-term missions sending agency that specializes in sending North American teams to locations around the world. We send our teams at the invitation of our partners to serve churches and ministries in whatever ways are most beneficial to the local host.
In 2008 Bethany began its own short-term mission division when it welcomed on board the personnel from STEM Ministries – Short-Term Evangelical Missions. STEM has been sending out teams since 1985, starting in Haiti and spreading out to other Caribbean countries and Central and South America. As part of Bethany International STEM, now Bethany Teams, has been able to send teams to many more locations around the world in partnership with long-term missionaries.
Bethany Teams’ mission is to bring the Gospel of Jesus to the nations by mobilizing the Body of Christ to send short-term teams to serve long-term partnerships. Bethany International’s vision is to prepare, equip and send missionaries and help them through every step of the process. Above all, Bethany seeks to “take the church from where it is to where it is not”, focusing on least-reached peoples and places.
Bethany Teams shares the same values as Bethany International which are: 1. Message of the cross 2. Centrality of prayer 3. All in commitment 4. Reach all peoples 5. Faith filled initiative
Bethany Teams - What We Do
Bethany Teams is the short-term training and sending ministry of Bethany International which has been sending out missionaries for over sixty years. Bethany International has been sending out missionaries around the world both short-term and long-term for the past sixty years. A full-service mission agency, Bethany includes a college of missions and a long-term force of over a hundred missionaries in Europe, Asia and Africa and Central and South America. Bethany Teams go to all these locations. We send a wide variety of teams, from large youth groups to small prayer-walking teams. We’ve sent senior citizens and families with young children as well as groups that are a mix of ages. Our teams have come from radio stations and businesses, churches and Christian schools. We love to mobilize God’s people into missions, whoever they are!
