"Short Term Missions: Long Term Impact is a fantastic resource for everyone desirous of being a blessing to other nations.  John Overholt packages vitally insightful truth in a style that is caring and easy to grasp.  John's wealth of experience delivered in story and succinct points helps each of us to be more understanding and effective in global ministry.  I'm very grateful to have this resource now and only wish I had it twenty years ago!  --Dr. Theodore (Ted) Vail  Associate Director of Foursquare Missions International
Is there really a need for  missionaries anymore? Are we not in danger of creating dependency with our giving or causing unintended harm by our kindness? Do Short Term Mission teams really make an impact? John Overholt tackles these types of questions and provides solutions necessary to promote  healthy short term mission programs that will produce long term results.
After more than seventy short term mission trips and seven years with boots on the ground as a full time missionary, John Overholt is no stranger to missions.  He became a missionary because missionaries came to him.
In his first book on missions "Come Follow Go" John describes how an encounter with God took him from Magic to Missions, first with Youth With A Mission and then with the Foursquare Church of Canada.
 In this new book “Short Term Mission: Long Term Impact” he highlights thirteen key ingredients that need to be incorporated into the philosophy and strategy of a churches mission program.
This book will challenge and encourage anyone who has a heart for the Lord to rethink some of the ways we do missions.
