PLEASE visit the Participant page (using the link above) and review all the information yourself so that you know what has been provided and is REQUIRED for your group.  

We have created an online participant list in Google Sheets that we will be using as a shared document with you – the Group Leader.  You will need to fill in the names of each of your participants (adult and youth).  Once your participants have completed their forms on-line, we will update your list so you can track who has or has not completed the necessary paperwork.  Instructions for accessing your list were emailed to you.  If you are having trouble accessing the document, please let us know ([email protected]).  GROUP LEADERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CONFIRMING THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS HAVE COMPLETED THE NECESSARY FORMS.  DEADLINE FOR COMPLETION IS APRIL 30th, 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: Some of our partner mission agencies require additional permission forms for participants. If your group will need to complete anything else, we will be in touch with you directly before your mission experience this summer.

Michael Poulos is our Mission Immersion Director in Asheville and will be your primary contact going forward. Michael will be reaching out to you soon to set up a time to talk through your week.
