When we answer the call to lead a team into the sort-term mission field, we are taking on a task that is so much more than handling logistics and making decisions. United Methodist Volunteer in Mission Team Leader Training is designed to teach us how to help equip and empower every member of our team.
This all-day training event includes information on how to gather a team, select a mission, plan your mission journey, and work together so everyone’s gifts and abilities are utilized to the fullest. It includes a theological framework behind the VIM movement as well as “nuts and bolts” like budgeting, safe sanctuary, insurance, and personal and team checklists.
Team Training will take place on Saturday, March 17, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Hennepin Avenue UMC in Minneapolis. It will be led by Tammy Kuntz, the North Central Jurisdiction Volunteer in Missions Coordinator.
This event is free and lunch will be provided.
Please register by March 13.
