In other words, they will need to actually make some money outside of personal donations. As part of this summer, you will be required to dream and execute a Creative Revenue Plan - a way to make some income based on your talents and gifts. This unique income will go directly towards the funding of your missions experience. Don't worry - Ember will provide some basic training in entrepreneurship to help get you started. Prayer and financial support letters will also be required - we will also walk you through that process. There is a whole section called Creative Revenue Plan. Think through this before submitting the application.4 - We put a lot of emphasis on preparing student teams. Be prepared to attend between 7-10 gatherings. Some will be meetings, some will be service experiences, some will be 'field trips.'
