Selecting the Right Team for Your Mission Trip

Here are some helpful tips from a blog about how to build the right team for your upcoming mission trip. Selecting your team will be essential to ministry success on the field. 
As you pray about putting together a group to serve on a short term
missions trip, the following practical tips can help.

1.  Select the right people. They need to be solid
followers of Christ, flexible, adaptable and teachable.

2.  Meet on a regular basis. Prior to the trip, you
should meet monthly to pray, inform, and innovate.

3.  Train the team members.  Provide seminars by
experienced missionaries, assign one or two books to read, and studies
on spiritual preparation.

4.  Delegate responsibilities. Preparing for short
term missions trips is a lot of work. Allow others to help you. Provide
opportunities for them to grow and be
stretched even before you reach the mission field.
