The primary objective of this mission trip will be to share the Gospel with a very unique people group, namely Mormons. We will be going to their home territory and sharing the Gospel with them in a context where there may be about 100 Christians but about 10 thousand Mormons. Because this trip requires specialized training to be able to communicate the Gospel effectively to such a difficult ideological context in the midst of a potentially intimidating location, we are REQUIRING all participants to undergo training. Not only must potential missionaries attend all training sessions, but even if they’ve trained in previous years, all must also undergo an interview / interview(s) to assure that they understand Christian theology first, Mormon ideology second, and how to communicate the Truth into the Mormon culture. The missionaries must also show evidence of a growing relationship with Christ. These are important first steps and we will do whatever possible to accommodate schedules and any other hindrance to attending the training, but we steadfastly affirm its necessity.
To register, one should first become familiar with the training requirements, the financial commitment, and the basic schedule – in other words read the information pack that was handed out -- to determine if the trip is something you believe God may give you the ability to attend. We will aid those in need in any way we can, from tutoring in training to providing fundraising opportunities if money is an issue!Make sure you register today and either pay your $50 deposit through online registration or bring it to Kevin by May 20. Pay the remainder of your money ($300 registration fee minus $50 deposit = $250) AND turn in your signed copies of the Registration Card and Medical Release form by June 10. By June 10, you will also need to turn in your “Training Check-off Sheet.”
