Frequently Asked Questions
Is Touch the World affiliated with a denomination?
Can I create a custom trip?
Who will lead my trip?
If you have a group with your own leaders, TTW takes great pride in our leader training program to adequately prepare and equip the adults that will be leading your team. Leader Training typically takes place as a one day seminar or is worked into the Missions Training schedule and is included in the cost of your missions trip.
What will I be doing at each location?
Will we be working with other groups?
Is transportation included?
All ground (in-country) transportation is included in the trip price. If you are traveling with a group, check with your group coordinator to see what transportation is included.
With the exception of the LEAD Program, airfare is not included in the estimated trip cost since those prices vary depending on time of year, size of group, and how early you apply. Additionally, all team members are responsible for their own transportation to/from Missions Training.
