Thank you for your interest in First Baptist Church of Cadillac’s short-term mission trips. Short-term trips are designed to advance relationships with our missionaries and strategic partners and to give you the opportunity to experience another culture and broaden your worldview. Below are the steps to take if you are considering joining us on a mission trip.
Step One: Not every short-term trip is right for everyone. Pray about your involvement in this trip.
Step Two: Complete the following forms (click to download):
Step Three: Upon receipt, your application will be reviewed by the Mission Leadership Team. An interview may be arranged for you with the Mission Leadership Team. They will answer any questions about the trip as well as build the team from the applicants to fit the need of the people being served. You will be notified about the team make-up.
Step Four: Begin the passport process if you don’t have one. If you do have one, ensure it will be valid for six months following your return. Visit www.travel.state.gov/passport for more information. It can take up to 12 weeks to process.
Step Five: Talk with your doctor or health care professional and team leader to determine if immunizations are required for your destination. Additional information can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov/travel). Some immunizations are available at the District Health Department or your pharmacy in addition to your doctor. Some medical insurances cover immunizations and some do not. You are responsible to get your immunizations and to pay for them.
If you have questions or concerns, call Lynn Ross 231-884-2451 or the church office. 231-775-5629
