Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who is the STMnetwork?

A. Our leadership (called the Lead Team) consists of a group of pastors, professors, and ministry leaders who are passionate about short-term missions.  They will consult with you and facilitate the many ongoing services of the STMnetwork.

We are a ministry of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada led by 2 Directors, whose task is to ensure the resourcefulness of the network.
