A Greenhouse is simply an environment that’s intentionally focused on growth. Just like every aspect of a greenhouse contributes to the growth of strong and healthy plants, everything on a short-term mission trip – can transform students. Help your students grow into strong followers of Christ by being intentional with the few precious weeks they spend on a short-term mission trip.
Helping Parents Connect Resource by Doug Franklin
Parents give the money. Parents put in the time. They are just as much a part of your student’s mission trip experience as he or she is – at least, they are at the beginning. So how do you help parents stay connected after all the payments are made, the logistics are set, and their kid’s suitcase is packed? How do you help them walk alongside their students from the preparation to the coming back from their mission trip? This resource is designed to enrich the journey that parents experience while their student is part of a mission trip.
Helping Parents Connect asks questions to get parents thinking about how they can best connect with their student before the trip, during the trip, and after the trip. It is a tool designed to get them involved from the beginning and to help them grow with their kids through this experience.
Mission Trip Planning Guide
The most successful experiences are those that are well-planned. You can’t walk into a meeting, youth group night, or preaching a sermon expecting to do your best without adequate preparation. The same is true with a mission trip. There are several details that require planning months before the trip. In an effort to help make this planning process easier, LeaderTreks has developed this Trip Planning Guide. This free resource is designed to simplify your trip planning process and equip you as you prepare students for a transformational trip experience.
