Spiritual Formation Before, During & After Short Term Mission Trips
Idea: As a mission team leader, God has appointed you as the shepherd for the group you will lead. It’s easy to be focused on the preparation and tasks necessary to complete a project before traveling to the mission field. In addition, you only have so much time in the mission field and you really want to finish your anticipated project. But God is in the business of growing disciples. God is not the least concerned about whether you finish the last coat of paint on the new chapel. In this session, we will share some of the best practices which will increase the spiritual growth of your team members before, during, and after your short term mission trip. As a result, you will return home with a group of more mature disciples for Jesus. 
Faculty: Jeff Jernigan
