USING SHORT-TERM MISSION TRIPS IN THE U.S. TO ENGAGE UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS

Abstract
This project considered using short term missions to try to engage unreached people groups in large U.S. cities. The presence of UPGs in the U.S. creates an opportunity for a “bridge” to make it easier for both the U.S. church to engage the UPGs and vice versa. I engaged with a partner who is working with a population of Afghans in a large U.S city, by implementing two STM trips with our church. To evaluate the project, I used a qualitative approach by using personal observations, semi-structured post-trip interviews with the partner, and a focus group with the trip participants.
