    A: PHASE TWO: 1-2 Weeks
    On the next business day after receipt of items in Phase One, we send a link and instructions to a pastor for his/her recommendation. This can take a while depending on if the correct email address was provided on the application; so be sure to get the most recent one from before submitting an application to avoid delay. Each week we send a reminder if necessary. Most pastors are filling out the form within a week or two.
    A: PHASE THREE: 2-3 Weeks
    A follow-up is sent to both our country and regional representatives for their input. This can take a few weeks due to their travel in remote areas, etc. If it is done quicker than this, we move right along to the next step.

    Once the necessary representatives give their input, an application is submitted for a Global Missions Administrative Committee approval. Immediately upon approval, an approval email is sent to the approved applicant as a courtesy.

    The approved application is moved to the UPCI Finance department for assignment of a Global Missions number for accounting of funds raised to be used by the Next Steps participant. Once this is assigned, a packet is then sent out to approved participant.
