In Submitting This Application
I am willing to work under the direction of the mission team leader to accept and to perform any and all assignments with a God-honoring attitude.

I am confirming that I have the time and energy to devote to the pre, mid and post-trip responsibilities. This includes separating the entire three months leading up to the trip to prepare spiritually, attend weekly preparation meetings, and complete assigned book readings and discussion questions.

I agree to participate in the training arranged by the mission team leader and complete all requirements for the trip.

I agree to return home at my own expense if the mission team leader, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Church Missions Director, determines my behavior is/has been inappropriate and therefore jeopardizing the long-term ministry.

I understand that my participation on this trip can be denied prior to travel if I do not participate in full preparation of the trip and my money will not be refunded.

I give God permission to do anything He wishes to me, with me, in me or through me, which would glorify Him.
