What We Do
Our mission is to aid local pastors in ministering to and loving-on their own communities through short-term missions. Ultimately, we are trying to create long-term ministry partnerships between international churches and churches in the U.S. that will give encouragement and growth to both for years to come.

Our work can be split up into three main parts:
1) Trip Leading: On average we will each lead 6-10 one week trips a year. Each trip can look very different depending on country, community, type of ministries we’re providing, and an unbelievable amount of other variables. One week we could be leading a group of retired doctors on a medical mission, and the next week we could be leading a church’s middle school group doing VBS and Sports ministries all week. Each week is personalized to the community that is being served, and also the group that is coming to serve.
2) Team Recruiting: A majority of our time back in Alabama will be spent recruiting teams to come on trips. We’ll be speaking with many churches and other groups of people helping them navigate what type of mission trip they would like to go on and also helping them prepare the details for such a trip. Without this piece, there would be no ministry being done during our “Trip Leading” phase.
3) Trip Setup: Once we understand what groups want to serve, we can begin setting up each trip. We’ll be in contact with them, the missions team, as well as the pastor/community they will be working with. This step naturally leads right back into leading trips.
There are a few more things that are required of us as a Praying Pelican Mission’s team members, but for the most part, these are our main areas of focus as we work to further God’s Kingdom here on earth. If you have any questions about anything we said here or about what we do please don’t be afraid to ask!
