2020 Workshop

Missions: Short-Term Missions Teams Leadership Training

3/7/2020 12:45 - 2:00 p.m. Room: N10

Why Short-term missions today? What are the highest priorities for short-term missions teams from America today? Pre-trip training is about preparing servant hearts and not about us! Health and safety in travel; best practices that work well. Debrief, re-entry, reverse culture shock, telling your story and follow up; better attention to the end of the mission needs to be a higher priority from the beginning! Gathered over a lifetime of experience, join us for a duffel bag full of tips and tools to help your team leaders!
