Next Teams

Pre-Trip Training

WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT ALL THE INCREDIBLE THINGS GOD WILL DO BOTH IN AND THROUGH YOU ON THE FIELD AND WE’RE GRATEFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR COMMITMENT TO PREPARE THEM FOR THIS MISSION!

The vision of our team is to see you begin the journey to live a missional life today, even before we get on the field. The experiences of working in a different culture, sharing the gospel story and learning and incorporating leadership principles into your life will carry you further along in this journey. But, the journey starts now at home with pre-trip training! We are counting on you to fully engage in these pre-trip training sessions.

When participants show up on the field that are well prepared, they are a tremendous blessing and benefit to our church-planting partners. Unfortunately, if participants haven’t prepared well they can quickly become a distraction or even a burden to the ministry that is taking place at our mission sites.

Spend a few minutes reading the overview below and looking over the training plan for the country where you will be serving. Make a plan for when you will complete these pre-trip training sessions. Remember, the more you practice sharing the gospel, the more confident you will feel the first day on the field, and the better you will be able to serve the local pastors.

You must complete the Pre-Trip Training before going on a Next Team mission trip!

OVERVIEW

THERE ARE FIVE MANDATORY SESSIONS IN THIS PRE-TRIP TRAINING.

Each session will take you around an hour to complete. You could complete it over a weekend or spread it out over several months. However, it is vital that you take the time to learn and practice sharing the Gospel numerous times between now and when you depart for your trip. Each session includes 3-6 short training videos on evangelism, culture, and training on the 3 CIRCLES.

You should have received a Pre-Trip Training Participant Guide 3 CIRCLES in the mail that will provide you with everything you need to prepare you for the ministry you will be doing on your mission trip. If you haven’t received this, or if you have any questions about this process or need additional materials, please contact us at [email protected]. Thanks in advance for your investment of time in this training process.

These training sessions have been customized based on the location where you will be serving on your mission trip. Please click on your mission trip location below to access the track for your specific training.
