Short Term Missions / Avance

Immerse, Support and Inspire.

A short term cross-cultural mission experience can be life changing; it can open a person’s eyes and heart to the work God is doing around the world.  It is a great way to better understand missions and to explore possibilities of longer term commitment.

Individual Placements: Work alongside our missionaries and partners; use your gifts and abilities to grow in your personal faith and further God’s kingdom. Time frames can be anywhere from two weeks to two years. To explore this further, fill in our contact form below.

Team Placements: LAM Canada sponsors several short-term mission (STM) teams to Latin America throughout the year. These STMs are an excellent opportunity for students or for those who can only commit a short time abroad. Whether it is helping to build a new clinic in rural Honduras or teaching Sunday school to inner-city kids in Colombia, our STM teams aim to encourage both the participants and the people they work with to spread the gospel and grow their personal faith.

If you are interested in participating in a team or in putting a team together from your church to work on a project through LAM Canada, please fill in our contact form below.
