Praying Pelican Missions aims to give missions groups the opportunity to make a long-term, genuine impact on a local community. When a team joins us for a mission trip, groups work directly alongside local ministries where you can help to meet real needs. Praying Pelican Missions believes that healthy short-term mission trips are possible by building upon genuine partnerships, long-term relationships, and sustainable ministry. Praying Pelican Missions serves as a bridge, connecting local churches from around the world. For over 15 years, PPM teams have been encouraging and assisting local ministries in what they are doing in their communities. Each year as lives are touched and hearts are transformed, there is an increasing number of pastors, churches, and communities inviting mission teams to serve alongside them through Praying Pelican Missions - from Chicago to Costa Rica to South Africa and everywhere in between.
