Know how to lead international mission trips with boldness


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (KT) - Get the confidence to lead mission trips overseas and share the gospel with the nations with training from the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

KBC's Team Leader Training for International Mission Trips will be held March 9-10 at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.

There's still time to register for the popular two-day course. Participants will cover topics including:

  • Planning a trip step-by-step
  • Security and crisis management
  • Team spiritual preparation
  • How to fun mission trips

"This training really is a one-stop shop for anyone thinking about taking a team overseas," said KBC Missions Strategist Doug Williams. "You'll learn exactly what to expect and how to deal with it."

Don't wait until church members are in a foreign country before you find out you're unprepared, Williams said.

Leaders who complete Team Leader Training and later guide a short-term international mission trip will receive a $300 scholarship to be used toward funding the trip.

Training is free, Williams said, thanks to gifts from Kentucky Baptists through the Cooperative Program. 

Register before March 2 at
