We will be hosting Pre-Conference Training and Meeting Options
Project Serve Trip Leader Training
Monday, February 6th from 2-9pm (with a break for dinner) and Tuesday, February 7th from 9am-12pm (lunch is not provided)
If you’re considering a Project Serve mission trip in the next two years, domestic or international, then this training is a valuable step for you to learn what it takes to put a trip together. If the thought of doing a mission trip is overwhelming, then please come hear how we can assist you and make it much easier. This training is also for those who would like to learn more about what Project Serve is and the benefits to your ministry and those being served. We’ll look at mission trips in general and some philosophical reasons for doing them or not. We’ll also talk about practical things such as what kind of students should go on a Project Serve trip, what is the most optimal destination and what kind of work is your team best suited for, plus a lot more.
If you need more information or have additional questions please call Guy LeCompte or Kelsey Ayers in the Project Serve office at the National Service Center. We look forward to seeing you here in Denver.
