This Fact Sheet examines Australian churches' reporting on the numbers of people who have gone on short, medium, and long term overseas mission trips. Christian mission organisations in Australia have a long history of sending workers overseas on long term mission, whether evangelism and assisting churches in ministry training, works of practical service and empowerment, or endeavours comprised of both proclamation and social service/justice.
