Ministry Philosophy

  • Committed to Kingdom growth, the lifework of DELTA Ministries is to provide premier, full-service opportunities for those desiring a short-term and mid-term missions experience.Bethany-Prayer-2

  • Committed to the local church and believing that it is God’s instrument to reach His world, we will produce timely and relevant resources and coaching to equip the church and the short and mid-termer missionary to accomplish its call in missions.

  • Serving as a facilitating agent, we partner with the short-termer, the local church, and the mission field to orchestrate the successful fulfillment of each assignment.

  • Being firmly convinced that short-term and mid-term ministries accomplishes the work of missions, generates career missionaries, inspires missions in the local church and is a catalyst for life-change in the short-termer, we dedicate ourselves to excellence in our commission.
