The Next Mile resources are designed to assist local churches and agencies plan and conduct effective short-term missions. Participants in the short-term mission experience include the goer/sender/local church/goer’s family/mentor/host and those to whom the STMer ministers. The mission experience that is well-planned and carried out will affect not only the life of each participant in their continuing journey to become more like Christ, but all the participants.  The Next Mile resources include a Leader Guide, a Goer Guide for youth and all-ages, and a post-ministry devotional.  Learn more at
