TRAVEL

The material below is meant to prepare your service experience team for cross-cultural travel. Each section has the handout material and a video that gives advice on how to teach the material.

General Trip Info walks through some common trip needs, but should be supplemented with specific trip information. Meeting One explores the biblical foundations for missions and gives you a glimpse at God’s missionary nature. Meeting Two looks at the world in which we live and specifically focuses on changes within Christianity in the last century. Meeting Three offers an overview of culture and prepares you for the challenges we find when we enter a new culture. Meeting Four concludes pre-trip training with some group activities to help you understand yourself and the team with whom you will be traveling. Meeting Five is to be done once the team has returned from their trip and is an opportunity to process the experience and think about how God may be calling you to engage.
