Description: For skeptics or critical thinkers needing valid scientific data to help substantiate the potential value of short-term mission trips, this cleanly typeset, spiral bound 51-page report presents the findings of a study conducted in 1996 by Calvin Theological Seminary student researcher Dan McDonough — summarized graphed, illustrated, and copy edited by Roger Peterson (13 easy-read tables, 4 graphs, 2 illustrations).

This study validated an earlier 1991 study with respect to observing substantial positive changes in mission-related prayer, giving, education, and return to the mission field — all correlated to the short-term mission program conducted by STEM Ministries.

The new knowledge produced by this study identified two specific correlations in STEM’s short-term mission program that were significantly more likely to put short-term mission participants on a path to longer-term missionary service.

This study provides helpful, evaluative data for churches, agencies, missiologists, scholars, and others concerned about ways to increase the likelihood of creating long-term career missionaries.
