Mission Trip Opportunities

Action Teams (Short Term Mission Trip Groups):

Open Eyes involves Christians like you in short-term mission efforts. We approach each mission team as unique, and actually design each experience for maximum impact in the lives of people, both those involved in serving in the short-term mission project and the people of Central America. Details of Preparing for a Mission Trip with Open Eyes

We are blessed to partner with many people for short-term missions. Most have never ventured outside the U.S. for a mission project. Some are very experienced in missions work. Open Eyes is recognized for providing the ministry opportunity of a lifetime for those that partner with us.

Open Eyes' desire is to not only to help you change Central America but see God use your visit to strengthen and equip you to change lives through ministries and churches back in the U.S.

Our approach to evangelism is best describe as "committed." Open Eyes believes in using all means available to us from God, and that the sharing of the Gospel must be our number one priority.

We utilize short-term mission teams to conduct major Crusades, revivals, door to door projects, fiestas, school ministry, and more. We use many avenues, such as feeding the hungry, construction or sports, to reach the multitudes and share Jesus as the Savior of the world.

Open Eyes has witnessed over 2,000,000 professions of faith since the ministry began in 1999.
