Missions Application 2019-2020
Being a part of a mission trip is one of the greatest opportunities you will have as part of the Wesley body. It is a challenging and growing experience, but it is also rewarding and can be a great means of advancing the Kingdom both at home and across the globe! Please prayerfully consider the trips below, and know that we're very excited about what God has in store for Spring and Summer 2020!

Please note:

If you want to sign up for multiple trips, you must submit multiple applications (one per trip).

The amount listed for each location is an estimated cost of the trip - once plane tickets are purchased, the cost, as well as trip dates, will be finalized and communicated to the team. It should stay very close to the estimated cost listed below. Summer trips will typically be 10 days-2.5 weeks in duration.

Be advised: some trips have limits on how many we are able to take. For this reason, you may not be able to get your first choice, depending on whether or not there is a waitlist. In all cases, the sooner you sign up, the more likely you are able to get your first choice.

In order for your application to be complete, you must submit a $125 deposit. $100 of this deposit will go towards the cost of your trip, $25 will go towards an administrative fee for trip participation (this $25 is an additional fee, on top of the cost of your trip).

Note - For international trips requiring a VISA: you will purchase those individually & this cost is not accounted for in the estimated cost of the trip.

Your answer
By initialing below, I confirm that I have read and agree to the following information: *
My application is not considered complete until I submit a non-refundable deposit of $125 - due at time of application. Wesley does not accept cash. I can pay the deposit in check form (made out to the Wesley Foundation with my name in the memo line) or online through Paypal at ugawesley.org under "Give" > “Missions”. A service fee of around 3% will be charged for online payment (be sure to account for this if paying your deposit online by paying $129 instead of $125). $100 of this deposit will go towards your trip - $25 will go towards an admin fee for trip participation. I understand that this $25 is in addition to the total cost of the trip.These are the only times a refund can be made to me: 1) My trip is cancelled by Wesley or 2) I forward my own personal money to meet a deadline and raise the full amount in support from others. I will then be refunded the amount I paid as long as the full cost is covered by others' support and I reach out to missions staff after the trip at ugawesleymissions@gmail.com. The deposit amount is non-refundable even under these circumstances. I acknowledge that these are the only acceptable circumstances for a refund. I will submit any questions I have on this subject to the Missions Director Meg Gray at ugawesleymissions@gmail.com as soon as I encounter them. I acknowledge the following financial deadlines: if my trip is over $1000, $350 is due by December 3, 2019; the cost of my plane ticket (or if there is no plane ticket, half my trip cost) will be due January 8th, 2020; the total amount of the trip is due at the second due date: spring break's second due date is February 5th, 2020; summer's second due date is April 8th, 2020. These due dates are non-negotiable.  I will attend the Wesley Mission's Conference on January 11th. **CUBA ONLY: Because this trip is taking place in December, money will be due sooner and quicker. $500 is due with application in order to secure your spot on the trip. $25 will go towards an administrative fee for trip participation (this $25 is an additional fee, on top of the cost of your trip). This payment must be made by October 22 or else a spot will not be held. $1000 total (including initial deposit minus $25 admin fee) will be due November 14th, 2019. The remaining amount of the total will be due December 3rd, 2019**
