Crisis Management for Short-term Teams

Presented by: Bob Klamser

Description: Are you a short-term mission leader, missions pastor, or organizational leader that sends or receives short-term teams? If so, are you prepared to manage a crisis event that may arise? In this session we will explore the key principles, challenges and options for managing some of the more prevalent crises that may occur while on a short-term mission. We will discuss ways to be prepared in advance, as well as mitigate events that do occur. In short, we will look at ways to be the best possible stewards of our most valuable “assets”, our people, from a crisis management and security standpoint. The primary audience for this workshop is short-term mission leaders, missions pastors, and agency leaders responsible for short-term teams.
