Missio Nexus (www.missionexus.org) and Brotherhood Mutual (www.brotherhoodmutual.com) are collaborating on a study related to risk and short-term missions. 

North American short-term mission sending has been a foundational aspect of engaging and educating the next generation of youth and adult church members into global missions.  Over the 1990's and 2000's the numbers of people going on short-term trips reached all-time highs.  Yet, the impact of global pandemics, wars, terrorism and changing social perspectives have significantly impacted sending in the past few years.  With a renewed interest at churches and agengcies in sending trips again we are interested in the levels of preparation and risk that ministries are willing to take to continue to send short-term teams among the nations.

The results of this survey will be published in March 2024 and accompanied by a joint webinar between Missio Nexus and Brotherhood Mutual at the same time.  Details will be communicated at MissioNexus.org and directly to all that participate in the survey.
