When I look back over 2011, one of the biggest highlights of the year for me was the opportunity I had to spend a week in the capital region of New York working with churches as part of the Alpha team of Creative Missions.
I’ve been on a few short-term mission trips before but none enabled me to use my skills quite the way this trip did. Working alongside a couple of amazingly talented communications pros (Danielle and Brad) we spent a week aiding churches in their communications efforts. Like other short-term mission trips I left grateful for the opportunity and humbled by the way God had moved through me. But I also came back to work with a renewed sense of purpose and a week of professional development on which you couldn’t even put a price tag.
Creative Missions is organizing a trip this summer to the Joplin, Missouri, northwest Arkansas area. If you are a communications pro with a passion for helping the local church you should seriously consider signing up.
