Preparing Short-Term Mission Leaders to Reduce Risk and Respond Well in Crises

Presented by: Jenny Collins

Description: STM goers want to courageously share Christ in word and action around the globe. Yet, we are not guaranteed safety and there are risks associated with all travel. Obedience to God’s call took Jesus’ disciples straight into dangerous situations. In the spirit of Matt. 10:16 and being “as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves,” this workshop will discuss biblical guiding principles for approaching risk, and how team leaders can reduce risk and prepare for on-field crises with excellence and appropriate concern, but not needless anxiety. We’ll explore planning for and responding to various types of events and emergencies. The primary audience for this workshop is those responsible for STM leadership, training, and risk management.
