MEET THE TRAINING CREW

In addition to host missionaries, national leaders and associates on the field, Global Missions senior executives and Short-Term Missions home office staff arrive on location during the 3 weeks of training. We want to get to know you, hear what’s on your heart, pray with you, and share experiences on the field together. The crew below work to make your assignment as smooth as possible.
