what is missions training?

Our 3-Day Missions Training Retreat equips short-term missions participants to serve in effective and culturally relevant ways. Without proper training, teams can unintentionally cause harm, and there will be no significant, long-term change in the lives of trip participants.

Based at The Mission Center in Kunkletown, Pennsylvania, our training covers a variety of essential pre-trip topics: culture & worldview, poverty, story & the Gospel, mission, team building, and prayer.

Training prepares participants to live out God’s mission, both on their short-term trip and in their everyday lives.
