Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

Merge is an organization directed and led by Global Church leaders, not North Americans. This gives Merge a Global lens in preparing and implementing short-term trips.

All Merge pre-planned trips are directed, organized, staffed and led by the national church. Teams learn FROM the local church leaders and pastors. The local church/ministries are inviting teams from the United States and Canada to participate in what God is already doing in their communities. Teams PARTICIPATE in ongoing ministries within the community of the local church and organization. The goal is to do ministry WITH local partners, not FOR them.

Merge trips to Mexico City are created by Mexican nationals in partnership with the local churches in order to create an opportunity for the team and local congregation/community members to do ministry together, learn from each other, build relationships with each other, and further the ministry of the local churches.

During the trip our staff will offer to lead your team in morning devotionals and evening debriefings written by Global Church Leaders to give your team a fresh new perspective regarding how God works in the world, your journey in your relationship with Christ, and Global perspectives on social justice issues. Post-trip debriefing includes a post-trip manual with meeting recommendations and outlines, virtual interaction with Merge Coaches from the country/region you will be visiting, plus a Merge Connect with community and church members your team interacted with during your trip.

All Merge trips are organized, led, and staffed by the Global Church. This gives Merge a UNIQUE non-North American perspective on short-term trips.

THE GLOBAL CHURCH INVITING – the initiative and leadership are from the Global Church, not the North American church to GO and lead
TO PARTICIPATE IN – the participation is active involvement and learning through what the Global Church is already doing. The focus is on involvement WITH, not doing FOR – active learning involves participation as well as reflection

OUTCOME – for participants from North America and the Global Church to be strengthened in their relationship with Jesus Christ, increase in passion for inter-cultural relationships, to implement God-inspired behaviors, and initiate new ministries and social change in their church and communities

Primary Values include:

LEARNING – God is doing amazing things through the global church. There is so much to learn about ministry and how God is working around the world. Come and learn!
RELATIONSHIPS – The kingdom of God is built on relationships, which are the key to a successful mission and ministry. Come and connect with followers of Jesus from around the world.
