Want to be a more effective mission team leader? Or are you interested in leading a mission team, but don't quite know where to start? There will be a UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers In Mission) team leader training on Saturday, February 15, 2020, from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at Perdido Bay UMC. Participants will receive a wealth of information on preparing a 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 $15 registration fee are the UMVIM Team Leader Handbook, snacks, and lunch. This training is open to all Alabama-West Florida United Methodists, and it satisfies training requirements for leading a UMVIM team. For more information, contact Susan Hunt at 334-356-8014.
This training session will be led by Susan Hunt. Registration is open to 12 participants.
