Short-Term Trips

We desire that every person at The Austin Stone go on a short-term trip at least once. If you have never done this, it may be the year for you! Short-term trips play a significant role in our spiritual formation, and are strategic for long-term kingdom impact. On these trips, we serve alongside long-term workers who are making disciples and planting churches. Trips are generally seven to ten days in the winter and summer months to countries like Europe, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South Asia, and more.
