Preparing Next Gen Short-Term Missionaries for Success
Friday, 8:30 – 9:45 AM
Presented by: Jolene Erlacher
How can agencies and churches best prepare and send next gen individuals to serve overseas for weeks or months at a time? How do young Millennial and Gen Z goers differ from previous generations? What is needed to make their short- or mid-term ministry experience a success? This workshop will look at critical practices to consider in sending next gen short-term missionaries. We will cover key information to include in pre-field orientation, strategies for supporting them on- and post-field, and guidelines for using technology throughout the short-term mission process and experience. There will be an opportunity to share and discuss best practices in each of these areas.
Primary Audience: Agencies and churches who are sending young adults and teens on STM trips
