Experience Bangkok

Short Term Vision Trips

Global Frontier Missions hosts excellent short-term vision trips to Bangkok, Thailand for people that may be interested in serving long term in Southeast Asia. If you are feeling “called” to the Buddhist world, these short term trips will give you a glimpse of many different ministries throughout the region and help solidify your next steps in serving among the unreached of Southeast Asia.


We are using these “vision trips” as a way for people to get a glimpse of Thailand and dream about how future life and ministry there could look. We have wonderful ministry partners throughout the country that teach English, work with children/youth, do sports ministry, help fight sex trafficking, work with refugees, do campus ministry, help with theological education, and more in order to share the gospel and see the kingdom of God grow throughout the region (Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Japan). If you have a heart for one of the types of ministries mentioned above, maybe YOU want to join us for one of these vision trips to see if one of these organizations might be where God is leading you or your church to be involved long-term among the millions of Buddhists with little access to the gospel.

Those traveling on these trips will spend one week in Bangkok prayer walking around the city, visiting Buddhist temples, taking public transportation, learning a little bit of Thai language and culture, and getting Biblical teaching. A lot of the vision trip will be spent learning from different organizations and missionaries to get an idea of what long-term ministry could look like including visa issues, language acquisition, paid and raise-your-own-support positions, etc. 

This is not a typical “mission trip” where the goal is to evangelize, to help out at an orphanage, or to build anything. This is mainly a prayer and scouting trip to expose people to the needs in the region and to help them discern if they want to serve in Thailand or Southeast Asia long-term.

Global Frontier Missions is looking for more singles, couples, or families to join our GFM Thailand Hub staff. We are specifically looking for people that might be interested in overseeing our Vision Trips, teaching at our Missionary Training School in Bangkok, and planting churches in Bangkok. These vision trips are a great way to catch the vision for GFM Thailand to see if joining our staff may be a good fit. Whether you choose to serve with GFM or with another organization, GFM is eager to help potential missionaries find their role on the mission field.
