Pure Heart Church (PHC) has a strong desire to be a part of the work God is doing around the world. They partner with organizations such as Global CHE Network and 1Mission to support global ministries that make a long-term, transformational impact in the communities they serve. PHC believes in fulfilling Christ’s commands to love mercy and do justice, providing practical support while empowering individuals and communities to climb out of poverty. They seek to empower local people in the area they are serving without creating dependence on foreigners, and invite their church family to participate through prayer, financial support, and short-term mission trips.

Short-Term Mission Trip FAQs
How do I apply?
Adults (18 & Older) MUST apply online via the specific trip link. Minors (17 & Younger on Date of Trip) must download and complete a minor application that MUST be notarized by parent(s)/guardian(s). The church provides free notary service during office hours, please call 602-866-8850.
When are applications due?
We encourage you to apply for a trip as soon as you know you can commit to it. We have application & deposit due dates posted on the website. You MUST apply and pay the deposit by the due date or else you cannot attend the trip.
Do I need to fill out an application if I’ve already been on a trip?
You must complete an application every trip you attend.
Do I need a passport?
A passport is needed for all trips. It is important to make sure you apply for your passport well in advance of the trip. Passports typically take 4-6 weeks to process. Also check the expiration date on your passport (you need to renew if your passport will have less than 6 months before expiration upon return from our trip).
Trips to Mexico also allow the use of a passport card.
What does the trip cost include?
Trip costs include all airfare, transportation in country, lodging, & team meals. Trip costs DO NOT include passports, visas required ahead of time, immunizations/medical costs, souvenirs, snacks, & food at the airport. In addition dorm space at the 1Mission base camp, requires an extra cost directly to 1Mission.
Are there scholarships available for short-term mission trips? How do I pay for my trip?
We do not provide scholarships for short-term trips at this time. We provide information on fundraising and the support of a our global outreach team to help you in the process of raising financial & prayer support.
Most people are not able to pay for some trips on their own. It is important to contribute as much as you can, but we also encourage you to fund-raise. We can support you with some sample fundraising letters you can adapt to your specific situation. Please download our fundraising packet for more information.
Is it safe to go on a Short-Term Mission Trip
All international travel involves an element of risk. Pure Heart and our ministry partners are committed to doing everything to ensure the safety of trip participants. Our pre-trip training and meetings will include safety guidelines and trip participants are expected to adhere to these and follow direction of trip leadership.
Do I need to get immunizations or shots?
It is your personal decision on what shots/immunizations you may need. We encourage you to discuss this with your medical doctor or a travel health center. You can find more information at http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel or http://www.worldtravelhealth.net. Any costs not covered by your medical insurance must be covered by you.
Are funds given refundable?
In order to make the trip donations tax-deductible, all contributions (checks, cash and credit card) must be made out to Pure Heart Church. It is important to note that contributions are solicited with the understanding that Pure Heart Church has complete discretion and control of the use of donated funds. As a participant, you do not have discretion or control of the donated funds. Any funds raised in excess of the trip cost will be used for the trip or other outreach projects. Any donations made directly to the trip participant are NOT tax-deductible, including crowd-funding websites (e.g., Go Fund Me, YouCaring, etc.). We require that you use Ministry Platform, which allows for online donations directly to the church.
*Due to IRS regulations, all funds including deposits, donations from supporters, and any personal payments you make are considered charitable contributions and are *non-refundable at any time under any circumstance. *If you are unable to attend a trip for any reason, we are unable to issue refunds to you or your supporters, all funds will be used to support the specific global outreach trip or program of the church.
