Steve Corbett, co-author of When Helping Hurts and Helping Without Hurting in Short-Term Missions will be joining us IN PERSON Saturday for a plenary session as well as leading 3 workshops in our Poverty Alleviation workshop track. Joseph Anfuso, founder and president of Forward Edge International will speak at Friday's plenary session to kick-off the event.
Both speakers will challenge and inspire you while equipping you for better short-term mission trips. Plus, you and hundreds of other like-minded missionaries will be led in worship by Ashley Ainley, worship leader at Summit View Church in Vancouver, Washington.
Use this as team leader training, team training, or to get specialized training for those who need it in subject like poverty alleviation, working with orphan and vulnerable children or other specialized topics.
Team members and leaders will get comprehensive training that addresses subjects like spiritual and cultural preparation, follow-through and debriefing, and support raising! Others can learn about how to leverage mission trips for youth groups, engage a disinterested church in missions, minimize risk and prepare for crisis, and how to develop healthy partnerships.
Lots of things can be done online, but some things need to be done face to face! A conference isn't just about what you learn but who you meet! Throughout the weekend you'll have opportunities to meet other like-minded people in worship, in workshops, over a meal, and during breaks.
You'll get to ask questions, share solutions, learn from one another, and build friendships that are both personally and professionally rewarding. You'll also get to connect with our many exhibitors and sponsors to get the products, services, and help you need for your mission program.
