Start the process now. Even if you are unsure of what trip on which to go, get your passport.
3. Get Information
Pickup a “Trip Information Card” in the Missions Cafe. There is a card for each trip that is being offered, on it you will find the necessary information that you need to get you started, from dates to cost and information about the type of work that will be done. Contact the trip leader or watch the church bulletin for information about trip information meetings.

This class is a necessary preparation for any mission trip. This is a basic training course that will inform, encourage, and equip you for your personal journey. The class will cover a lot of topics including what is Idlewild’s mission vision, safety and security issues and cultural sensitivity.
