Presented by: Jesse Kroeze
Description: Learning from each other is essential to navigating short-term missions in a way that will bring maximum effectiveness to both participants and communities. Both churches and agencies have a vital role to play and bring different strengths and assets to the process. This workshop will use interactive exercises and teaching to engage discussion on how we can partner together in order to pursue the best version of short-term missions for life-long transformation, both within the participants themselves and in the communities being served. Learning Objectives are: to understand the essential elements for an effective STM trip, to identify specific needs you may have in your mission program, to know if using an agency is the right fit for your church, and to understand how agencies and churches can best partner together. The primary audience for this workshop is churches, agencies, and STM leaders.
