Going on a Trip
The most important aspect of trip preparation is prayer. Praying and asking God if He is sending you to go and take part in the Great Commission. (Hint: If you are reading this, chances are you have already heard His whisper in your heart and are not here by accident.) The next step is to pray about where God might have you go. Is your heart burdened by a specific cause, demographic, people group, country, or region?
After your have prayed and feel like you have received direction from the Lord on what trip He has called you to, apply for that trip.
Your application is reviewed by our Global Outreach team and if you are accepted, you will be contacted by your trip leader. Your faith journey begins!
Once contacted by your trip leader, you will be instructed to begin your passport application process. This usually takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks. For a link and specific instructions on how to obtain your very own passport visit the Common Questions page.
Your leader will advise you to make an appointment with your local licensed physician. The CDC and US Department of State each strongly recommend travelers to receive country specific vaccinations before departing on their trip. Simply make an appointment, tell your doctor the country you will be visiting, and let them take care of the rest!
