Northeast does short-term trips differently than most churches. We let our global partners set the agenda by asking for their most pressing needs. Then, we recruit individuals who are uniquely qualified to meet those needs. This tends to limit the size and scope of our teams, but it ensures the needs of our global partners always remain our #1 priority – no matter how strange or specific they might be! We aim to expand the long-term impact our partner organizations are able to have on their communities by removing some of the biggest obstacles to their everyday operations.
How do we accomplish this? Our primary goal is to foster strategic, long-term partnerships with organizations that:
- bring about positive change in communities by empowering local people to develop sustainable initiatives
- include others in the process by practicing strategic short-term trips
- serve with the love of Jesus and work alongside the local church
