Short Term Mission Opportunities in Estonia

 

Since 1992 Estonian Christian Ministries has sent men and women to Estonia to build a dynamic network of Christian radio stations.

Until 1991 Estonia, located near Finland, Sweden and Latvia, was occupied by the Soviet Union.

During the summer periods there is: construction work, helping in Churches and cooking to be done. Both skilled and unskilled worker-missionaries needed.

Besides construction work and cooking for the teams, all short term missionaries have also had the opportunity to be involved one way or another with personal, street and/or mass evangelism in churches, on the radio, divorce recovery, abortion or various women’s and men’s seminars, music, youth ministries, teaching English classes, prison ministries, counseling, visiting retirement homes, sharing humanitarian and medical aid, etc.


Up Coming Mission Opportunities

Each year one or more teams travel to Estonia on Short Term Mission Trips. Below you will find a summary of previous projects. If you may be interested in participating with a future team please contact our office or check back later for information on future projects.
