Short Term Ministry Teams

Global OutreachMini

Our desire is to see everyone at Cypress Bible Church GOing in life-changing mission. One of the key ways in which we do this is through short term trips. In 2016, we are sponsoring eight short term trips, geared to ages 10 and up.

We provide opportunities for families to serve together. We provide opportunities to share the life changing message of Jesus in both the greater Houston area and internationally.

Trips vary from five to ten days in length, making a short term trip an ideal way to have a vacation with a purpose. We'd love to have you join us on a short term trip this year, and every year.

A link to the application process, contact information and a donate link is available in the description of each trip.

Ireland Logo Website

Ireland is a country of extreme beauty and once had a well-established Christian heritage. This heritage is diminishing quickly—we need to revitalize this nation for Christ. To be considered an unreached people group, the percentage of believers in Jesus has to fall under 2% and have no growing church movements. Missionaries in Ireland report that only .5% identify as believers in Jesus making Ireland just such a place.

While there, we will be doing outreach and evangelism to engage many far from God and facilitating intensive discipleship to help begin rapid, healthy, Biblically-sound churches. 

Join us as we seek to proclaim the gospel, make disciples, and plant churches across Ireland until there is no place left!

Deadline:  March 15, 2020



Our team will join other volunteers as we serve at Camp Blessing.  We will be serving the campers with cognitive and physical disabilities, allowing them to experience ‘camp’.  By volunteering to care for these campers, we also allow their parents/caregivers a time of respite.
