Impact Teams

Impact Teams

Impact Teams are a perfect way to experience and extend the transforming love of Jesus Christ!  No matter what age or stage you are in life, God wants to work through you and in you through missions.

Impact Team trips offer a variety of short-term mission opportunities near and far, spanning the globe to serve alongside ministry partners. Everyone at BelPres is a part of God’s rescue mission to the world!

Ready to go? We are looking for new leaders and teams.  If you’d like more information about leading a trip or want to join any of our upcoming Impact Teams, let’s chat! Contact Mark Burns 425-454-3082 x3367 or
