Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Help provide vital resources as we reach the next generation of boys and girls with the love of Christ.
For more than 35 years, Forward Edge has engaged, organized, and equipped more than 20,000 Christ-followers on nearly 1,600 mission teams to step out in love to many parts of the U.S. and 34 countries. Over this time, we’ve learned how to conduct the best mission trips—trips that truly help and lead to lasting transformation for all involved.

Families in Cuba struggle to meet their basic needs due to government restricted income levels. Serving in Cuba will provide opportunities for you to help feed children both physically and spiritually.
Children in the slums of Uganda, many of whom are orphans, are served through our Light a Candle program. Serving on a team will allow you to show Christ's love to the children as they come to the program for nutritious food, fun activities, and the Good News.
Every component of our mission trip experience has been purposefully crafted to increase the long-term impact for both the communities served and those who go to serve.
We encourage all of our short-term missionaries to embrace the reality that relationships are more important than accomplishments, and people are more important than projects.
We partner with passionate and dedicated local believers who lead long-term programs and initiatives in their own communities.
Our missionaries are not sent as “heroes” to “save” those living in poverty. Instead, they’re servants, always focusing on doing things with people, not just for them.
Team members are encouraged to prayerfully consider how their mission trip relates to the rest of their life and are provided with resources and training to help them integrate what they learned on the mission field into their lives back home.
After mobilizing more than 500 churches over the past 35 years, we’ve become experts at doing short-term mission trips the right way—a way that develops disciples, respects local populations, and bears lasting fruit for all involved.

Students are ideal short-term missionaries. They’re making decisions for their futures, and we provide schools with opportunities to positively influence those decisions through unique mission trip experiences. We work with middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities across the U.S. to provide life-changing trips for their students.
