Mission experiences can be transformational discipleship experiences. Through them, there is a possibility to learn more about ourselves and others, and witness God at work through our neighbors and us. All of these opportunities include components that begin 4 – 8 months before the team travels and continues with 3 – 6 months of reflection following the on-site experience. The investment of time includes Bible study; learning about the history, current realities and people of the community serving alongside of you; and reflection on how an experience away from home can enhance our service when we return home.
