Acts 13 expresses an example of God working through the local church at Antioch to send their missionaries directly to the field. This episode will help us understand the theology and purpose churches choose to send direct instead of relying on a mission organization.

A missionary survey trip is when a pre-field missionary purposely goes to the host country to pray for, prepare to move into, and pursue information needed to enter into ministry and life in that country. It is not a short-term mission, but a pre-field exercise for the home church and future missionary.
It is best to see the pre-field survey trip as a key and early investment for the home church and pre-field missionary.
