Requirements for MIT

This program is designed to help teens experience the mission field. For that reason, the following requirements are necessary:

  1. The teen’s pastor must agree for the teen to be involved in the program. Without a sending church, missionaries cannot be Biblically sent.
  2. Church leaders will be asked to submit recommendation forms. (Correspondence will be kept private)
  3. Teens will be expected to raise some of the funds and should not expect their parents to pay their entire way.
  4. Although this will be an enjoyable trip, it should not be considered a vacation. Everyone will be expected to help with various duties.

Please pray that God will use this program to help teens in their search for God’s will. We desire to help your teen on their spiritual journey.
