Making Mission Trips Better.

DELTA Ministries and Standards of Excellence are merging to form the new SOE

DELTA Ministries and Standards of Excellence in Short-Term Mission are joining together to form a single organization under the banner of SOE.

These complementary ministries will provide more effective and relevant services to churches, organizations, schools, and missionaries involved in short- term missions.

The new organization will continue to do what both have done best, but it will now be a coordinated effort.

The training style of DELTA Ministries will continue and now it will be multiplied across hundreds of member churches, organizations, and schools.

Members of SOE will continue to enjoy the credibility that membership brings and now will also receive added benefits for their membership. Read the full Article »
