The Next Mile: Short Term Mission Resourses

April 14, 2012

I have recently come across two resources designed for short term missions trip from The Next Mile organization. The first was Goer Guide: youth edition which includes pre-departure guide, information for the trip itself and 7 days of follow up. The second book was titles The Mile Post Devotional specifically designed with 52 follow up devotions for after the trips conclusion. These books are a cooperative effort between specialists from many of the most influential short term missions organizations including N.N.Y.M., O.M.F., World Vision, Wycliffe and others. they represent a portion of the list of resources produced and available by www.nextmile.org including a free down-loadable guide to mentoring. During the days of my hands on youth ministry I was consistently looking for training and follow up resources to make my short term missions trips more impact-full but those were few and far between and of questionable value. These are a new generation of books based solidly on the years of reflection, research and experience in short term missions. I found them small enough to be practical but deep enough to provide value for the dollar. I anticipate using these and perhaps some of the other resources offered when I lead students back to Poland in Spring 2013. Check out this organization they may be the STM partner you are looking for!
