Team Member Application
Goals and Requirements

We count it a privilege and an honor to serve others and Jesus through this team effort! It is our prayer that God will speak to your heart in a way that you feel compelled now and in the future to serve the needs of “the least of His children” whether at home or abroad. As followers of Christ, we promote certain standards of conduct, and all of us are expected to adhere to certain guidelines while on this mission.

We respectfully require:

• that you refrain from using any tobacco products

• that you refrain from drinking any alcoholic beverages

• that your conduct at all times, whether with your teammates or the people we serve, reflects the beliefs of followers of Christ.

We will be guests of full time missionaries and possibly of a host nation. It is imperative that we follow their rules and remain FLEXIBLE and POSITIVE in accomplishing the mission that God has given us and our missionary hosts. While on this mission project, we are ambassadors of Jesus Christ and all He represents. You need to be aware that all eyes are on the team –the whole community knows we are in town—and we need to set a good example. We profess to be a Christian group before the authorities and those whom we serve. We ask that you exhibit Christ-like attitudes at all times and follow team leadership guidelines. Please be mindful of the fact that one of the ways we evangelize is through our example. Whatever else may be accomplished, our main mission is to glorify Jesus Christ! We are excited by what God has prepared for us during this fantastic opportunity and the huge blessing the experience will bring not only to those whom we serve but to our lives as well.
