Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Christianity, Religion

Mission: We are a short-term mission organization focused on the heroes leading the efforts around the globe, the heroes our short-term teams go to serve. Many organizations get the process reversed, focusing first on the needs of those “going”. However, when meeting valid needs of winning partners is the focus, teams can then be deployed with maximum long term effect! We have pre-planned mission trips, but most are customized to match the abilities and gifts of the team for that particular trip and location. We are known for our superb logistics and planning, insuring the time on mission is never wasted. Don’t expect “canned” programs, expect collaboration for the months leading up to your group mission trip, and an extremely customized itinerary fitting your group like a glove. Many of our teams return year after year to serve the same location partners. Moving far beyond a list of projects, our participants consistently report an experience of relationships, new friendships & cultural immersion.

Results: We have experience hosting teams in myriads of communities including but not limited to Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador and sites in the United States.

Excellent heart for authentic mission work. Truly working with world class leaders who benefit greatly from teams coming to assist. Way beyond typical partnership goals, this is more like immersion into a big family of genuine relationships, where you become the newest member! Highly recommended for groups of all types and sizes. They can handle the planning.

We had over 80 medical professionals on the ground. The President of Wayfinder Missions personally served us. Clinics were set up and locations changed daily but the staff at Wayfinder was way ahead of the game, setting up the next day sites every night. Accommodations were excellent, we never wasted time waiting on transportation or for clinics to be set up.

Excellent medical missions provider! Much more emphasis on real immersion into the culture and not just a trip full of clinics without meeting locals.

Most missions teams struggle to find an opportunity that makes a truly lasting impact. Wayfinder has the preparation, partners and relationships that make all the difference. The minute you and your team get home, you’ll be planning your mission for next year!

Our school has partnered with Wayfinder for a few years. The attention to detail is second to none. We appreciate the extent to which they focus on sustainable mission efforts, where we join in ministry that is legitimate and sustained whether or not "groups come". But with that, the help we and others give boosts the ministries to new heights, and that's amazing to see! Go with Wayfinder, you'll be well taken care of.

Wayfinder has worked so hard to do "missions" right--partnering with local, nationals-led churches and asking them for their needs! I was looking everywhere for a way to bring our Youth Group on an international mission trip that helps without hurting the community, and I know that I've found that in Wayfinder. Everyone from the President of the non-profit to the people on the ground leading the trips has been friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and full of passion for exposing others to what God is up to around the world. I highly recommend booking a trip through Wayfinder Missions.

Wayfinder is an excellent missions organization. They prioritize long term sustainable partnerships over short term experiences. I would strongly recommend Wayfinder to any group interested in missions.

I have been involved with Wayfinder for about two years now, but the leadership of Wayfinder has made an impact on my life that will last a lifetime. Through this organization, I have been able to share the love of God with people on multiple trips to Belize, as well as Saint Louis. The people that I have met and worked with are not just friends from a far, but they are truly family. You will laugh, love, befriend, everyone you meet through this organization, and through the hard times that you face, or that the people you meet face, you can share hope and prayer with Godly people. Wayfinder is going to help the Heroes, and I'm glad that I am along for the ride!

We served with Wayfinder in St. Louis. We found that their compassionate and unhurried approach to ministry matches well with our approach to missions. We highly recommend Wayfinder!
