Volunteers in Mission (VIM)  Team Leader Training will provide you (and your church) with all the information and tools that you will need to participate in or lead hands-on mission. Team Leader Training equips individuals to lead national and international teams to approved United Methodist project sites.  It touches on what constitutes an UMVIM team, team duties, team dynamics, cultural understanding, team spiritual formation, tips for travel and fundraising, timeline for organizing a team, forms and insurance needed.   

The main reasons to become a trained team leader are:
To Do NO Harm
To Do Good
To Stay in Love with God

It is not a game to be taken lightly but a covenant to enter into with God and the Host community as we practice sharing and mutuality in mission. There are so many facets to the experience and people do not need to go into it blindly nor do they have to reinvent the wheel!  We do not desire to “control” as much as to help facilitate the process of volunteering when training team leaders.

Training is based on standard North Central Jurisdiction UMVIM curriculum and the General Board of Global Ministries UMVIM Training Manual that will be available at a cost of $25.00.
