Interested in leading a mission team, but don't know where to start? There will be an UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers In MIssion) Team Leader training session on Friday, May 25, 2018, at Community Life UMC in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. The training will run from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Participants will receive a wealth of information on preparing an UMVIM team for service, including such topics as effective project selection, spiritual development, cultural sensitivity for teams, logistics, and finance.

Participating in the training does not obligate you to lead a team, but will help you understand the fundamentals of team leadership and will enrich any future Mission experiences you have. You will also gain ideas on places around the world where you can serve. 

Maybe you do not think you are qualified to lead a team or have doubts about your ability to lead a team. Answering God's call to mission is not about feeling equipped or worthy; instead, it is about trusting the God who called you to use you as you are. Participating in God's Mission is the call of every Christian. Your willingness to serve can and will transform your life, the lives of those who go with you, and your congregation as well.

Included in the $35 registration fee is the UMVIM Team Leader Handbook and lunch. This training is open to all Alabama-West Florida United Methodists, and it satisfies training requirements for leading an UMVIM team. CEU credits are available. For more information, contact Niki Crews, 318-243-0713.

This training session will be led by Rev. Alan Gantzhorn.
