Code of conduct

You are expected to conduct yourself according to the highest standards of integrity at all times. Mission trips are a time for fellowship, an opportunity to grow in faith and fertile ground for renewing your perspective. There will be opportunities to pray, speak, listen, study and serve God alongside other people who have felt this call at this moment of their lives.

Serving God in any capacity is a privilege and we expect that all members will conduct themselves in a manner that exhibits that. We are guests and we must act accordingly and respectfully to our fellow brothers and sisters as we serve in that area. Our mission is to help people discover Jesus and to equip them to make Him known.

The following reflect our core values and are meant to serve as guidelines during a mission trip. As a team member, you are expected and have committed to :

  1. Participate fully in the ministry, be present and on time, and serve in your fullest capacity for the duration of the trip.
  2. Have a flexible attitude, placing your personal needs and preferences aside in order to serve other team members but also people you will encounter on the mission trip.
  3. Be open and honest with your mission leader if there is anything that could potentially jeopardize your ability to serve or place yourself or others in danger.
  4. Stay together as a group or with a buddy as and when needed. You don’t do anything for yourself or by yourself as you’re part of a team serving together, if you need prayer, a break etc. please make it known to your team leader.
  5. Abstain from the use of anything that would hinder your ability to serve, be detrimental to your health, or take your attention away from the mission trip (phones, work meetings etc.) as this is not a holiday !
