Missions Direct

Mission Direct supports great locally led projects among the world’s poorest people. 

We do this by enabling people like you, with two or more weeks to join our life-changing trips. We are a Christian charity committed to expressing God’s love for the poor in words and actions.


Why Go On A Short Term Mission Trip?

  • It’s life-changing - you will experience a different way of life and might even return home with a new perspective on what really matters in life.
  • It’s not a huge commitment of time - you can use your holiday time to share God’s love in practical ways with those who need it most.
  • It’s a unique first-hand experience - praying and giving are great ways to be involved in transforming lives. But, nothing in the world beats the satisfaction of seeing the smiles of the people whose house you helped to build.
  • Make new friendships - you will make new friendships with other volunteers as you work alongside each other, share meals, conversations and prayer times together.
  • Hear God speak to you - it’s so much easier to open your ears to God as you step out of your normal surroundings and comfort zone.
  • Share your faith - with practical actions as well as words. During projects we regularly show the Jesus film and invite people to give their lives to Christ.


Why go with Mission Direct?

  • You can watch every penny make a difference - All the money you raise – over and above basic trip expenses - goes to the project and benefits the people you serve.
  • We make it easy - Mission Direct arranges everything for you including flights, visas, accommodation and more. We brief you well about the country and the project that you will be part of.
  • We ensure that your work makes a lasting impact - We carefully vet all the projects we partner with to make sure the good work continues long after our volunteers have left.
  • No specialist skills required - We welcome individuals, families and groups. All ages considered.


Gap Years - Time for a something different?

We offer numerous gap year opportunities, lasting from 3 months to a year. From caring for abandoned babies in Zambia to sharing the Gospel in Uganda, we will work hard with you to ensure you find the right project to match your needs and gifts.

You can either work as part of a Mission Direct GAP Year Team with other like-minded people, or you can join one of our overseas projects for an agreed period of time, as best suits your requirements and abilities. Either way, this is an opportunity to take time out from your existing routine, and allow God to revolutionise your life and priorities.
