Short-Term Missions

Please Note: The Visitors Center at our Pemba location is closed indefinitely due to the continued and increasing violence in the region. Learn more about the situation and how you can help.

Perhaps least in the eyes of people, but beloved members of Jesus’ family, are the poor and poor in spirit of the world. A short-term missions trip to an Iris center gives you the opportunity to serve alongside our national staff and missionaries and experience the simple power of love in action.

We are always amazed at what God does through our short-term visitors. A father or mother’s hug imparts adoption. A carpenter’s skill provides covering. A young adult’s strength releases encouragement. The Body is built up, the hungry are fed, the lonely are filled, the Kingdom is expressed, God is glorified, and thankfulness and joy abound.

Each of our ministry locations are differently equipped to host short-term visitors and have unique ministry opportunities to serve. Check out our ministry’s pages to learn more and contact them directly to start their visitor application process.

Important Note: Because we are serving in underdeveloped countries with unpredictable conditions, Iris Global cannot and does not guarantee your safety, health, or comfort. You will be doing us in trusting God as provider and protector.
