Vessels of Mercy International Missions gives you the opportunity to serve thousands around the globe who are in desperate need both physically and spiritually.  Vessels of Mercy International is a faith-based multi-denominational, intergenerational relief & development organization, recognized by many as the leader in custom and pre-planned short term mission trips for individuals and groups. From mobile medical, dental and vision clinics and work relief projects, Disaster Relief and personal evangelism and ministry presentations. Vessels of Mercy International Missions will show you how changing the world will change you forever.

LET GO of the mundane and grab hold of what’s meaningful. It’s time to face a new challenge, dare new risks, and reach for a higher peak. Reach out, meet needs, give of yourself, and make a difference.

A Vessels of Mercy International missions trip includes Airfare from Richmond Intl. Airport, lodging (hotel/camp or guesthouse with beds & water), ground transportation, meals, insurance, visas, free day costs-entrance fees, and all ministry costs.  All inclusive from the time of arrival to time of departure.  Departures from other airports can be arranged for an additional charge.

Vessels of Mercy International has a simple goal…

We want to shatter the way you think about the world.  We want to transform the way you see people, and the way people see God.  We want to see hearts healed, minds changed, and bodies mended on a global scale.  It’s that simple.

Join other individuals as they REACH OUT to the nations!

Experience matters.

Since 1995 we have trained and mobilized thousands of short-term missionaries and leaders and traveled to more than 150 countries.

We’ve learned a few things in over the years. Like how to help people have the best missions experience anywhere. That requires a delicate balance between personal challenge, unique service and of course, recreation.

Missions is an investment of time, talent, and treasure. From your first contact with us, we are committed to you in a big way. You can rest assured knowing you will have established and seasoned leadership assisting you every step of the way.
