Mission Scholarship and Training Fund

Join us as we aim to raise $25,000 for mission trips and mission training this year! We will begin collecting for the offering on May 7.

“ . . . and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Third has a strong legacy in local and global mission. Short-term trips are known to be springboards for individuals to choose a life of service in mission ministry. There are many ways you can be involved even if you are not actually going. Some may be goers, some senders and others may advance mission work through prayer.


This summer there are two short-term mission trips:

Haiti Mission Trip: July 15-22

Each year, Third travels to Haiti to work alongside friends to treat patients, build homes for families and teach 180 sweet children about Jesus. The medical staff sees hundreds of patients in the poorest city in the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Your offering will not only assist with funds needed for supplies but it will also help fund the Haitian staffed portion of the clinic in Cite Soleil which is at risk of closing.

High School Mission Trip: July 2-8

Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota serves as the tribal headquarters for the Chippewa tribe. Here our high school ministry will serve by painting, cleaning, doing yard work and simple work projects or upkeep of the community gardens. They will also plan and lead kids' programming for children in the community and learn about the Native American culture from an Ojibwa perspective.


Would you please consider contributing toward our short-term trips as a sender?

Your contributions go toward:

  • Scholarships: To help support persons in gaining exposure and experience in mission work settings through short-term mission trips.
  • Projects: To purchase materials for ministry projects to be completed by our short-term mission teams (construction materials, medical supplies, VBS materials, etc.)

Short-term mission trips expand the reach of our church beyond our geographic area. Will you commit to pray for our teams? Can you help expand Third’s reach to both Haiti and Leech Lake through giving? The legacy continues . . .
