God has called believers to step outside their cultural comfort zones and make a difference in the lives of others. How? It’s really quite simple—start by helping just one person. As World Vision founder Bob Pierce once said, “Don’t fail to do something just because you can’t do everything.” Read on for ways to help out career Impact partners or get involved with short-term missions.

Young and old have invested their time and talents in short-term service trips, and each and every person has said their faith grew more than they thought possible. If you’re curious about serving at home or abroad, start praying about future opportunities. If you’re ready to take a leap of faith, here’s what’s next:
