Summer Missions Reflection Guide
Welcome to the TCF Summer Mission discernment process! A summer mission can be an exciting opportunity for Christian growth for those who are ready for the challenge. Yet at the same time, the challenge and intensity of giving yourself on the mission field while working and living with a team can be a lot. We want to work with you to discern whether or not a summer mission is a good next step for your Christian growth, and have provided this reflection guide to begin that process of discernment.

Please take time to reflect on each question, then type out your reflections as soon as possible. Once you submit it, you will receive a phone call from a TCF staff worker to discuss your reflections. Filling out this reflection does not mean you are committing to a summer mission, it is simply moving you on to the next steps of discernment.

Deadline to submit your summer missions reflection is January 13, 2019.
