Short Term Missions

Global Service Opportunities

One of our core values is Glocal Service and one of the ways that Jericho Ridge is living this out is by inviting you to invest in two key international ministries.


Each year, JRCC sends a serving team to this Central American country to serve with our partners, Bethel Ministries.  

JRCC is sending our 11th team to Guatemala March 17-24, 2018! The focus of the trip is to share the love of Jesus through actions, specifically to orphans, widows, the physically challenged and poor families. The team is planning on building 1 or 2 small homes and distributing food and clothing to families in need with the main focus of the trip being a wheelchair distribution for those with mobility challenges. 

Applications are available now through Oct 31 for those connected to JRCC and Nov 1 for external candidates. Click here to download a PDF application form or click here for an online version.  Please submit completed applications to or in person to Tammy Smethurst on Sunday mornings.

Here's a glimpse of how one of our past teams shared the love of God with others during their one-week stay:

We will be releasing more details on the 2018 trip in the fall of 2017 so stay tuned.  In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Guatemala trip or would like more information on how you can financially support our Guatemala projects please contact Tammy Smethurst ( )  



In 2013, Under The Same Sun (UTSS) & Jericho Ridge hosted the first-ever summer camp for children with albinism in Tanzania, East Africa. It was deemed a strong success and so in the summer  of 2016, we sent a group of volunteers from JRCC and other local churches to invest two weeks in July serving and learning alongside UTSS Tanzania staff, local university students and a partner church (BMCC) in Mwanza, Tanzania for a repeat of summer camp for approximately 170 children with albinism.  Here's a video highlighting the work...

If you have any questions about the Tanzania trip or would like more information on how you can support or participate in the ongoing work of Under The Same Sun, please e-mail Brad Sumner.
