How Does This Work?
"If I want to go on a trip, what do I need to do?" "When I sign up, what am I signing up for?" If you are considering a Short-Term Mission Experience (STME), these may be just a few of the questions that you have. Here's an overview of our 3-step process to get you acclimated.
1. Register for Your Team
You'll want to register at least 12 weeks before the departure date.
- Pray about participating in a STME, and research where we serve. You can find information on the website, by talking to Pastor Wood or Jessica Ramdohr, and by talking to past STME participants.
- Find a date/site that works for you, complete the application and turn in your $100 deposit to Jessica Ramdohr or Pastor Wood in the church office. Upcoming trip dates/sites can be found both on the STME application and on a Save the Date at the information counter.
- Begin the passport and vaccination process. Information can be found in the FAQs and under Where We Serve.
2. Prepare With Your Team
You will participate in 10 weekly meeting with your team. These times will give you time to bond as a team, learn the place where you will serve, prepare spiritually for your STME, and work on any prep-work for your specific work projects. Your meeting times will be based on your team’s schedule.
3. Serve With Your Team
While you are on site, you will work together, do devotions together, and serve together.
