FAQs about Team Trips
Do team trips actually help?
It’s worth noting that not all of our missionaries accept teams. Some simply don’t have the bandwidth to host a team, and for some countries and specific contexts, a team is not helpful. Yet in several countries year after year, the missionaries ask for teams. These teams are able to accomplish much more together than the missionaries can do alone. They bring expertise, encouragement, and momentum. A team can be a catalyst for a new area of ministry and send a message of unity and gospel-centeredness to the community. The additional impact of a team is in the lives of the participants. People return from trips with confidence to take steps of faith, practical teamwork experience, and inspiring stories for a lifetime.
Why not just send money?Money is necessary and God calls all believers to generosity, but seeing firsthand what a monetary gift can do is irreplaceable. You’ll meet the people whose lives have been changed through your generosity, and you can serve the Lord in other ways as well: with your time, talent, expertise, empathy…the list goes on. Meeting believers from other countries creates a lasting connection for both you and the people you visit.
