Youth that have participated in student mission trips throughout the years are invited to join any of the Volunteers in Mission (VIM) Leader Training sessions occurring around the conference
All volunteers (youth adult) interested in mission leadership are encouraged to join one of the sessions at UMVIM Leadership Training signup.
Youth will take their passion and skills learned during student mission trips and apply it to greater opportunities in Rio Texas, nationally and abroad. The UMVIM Team Leader training event is the start of a lifestyle whereby Christians, adults and students, may offer their skills and talents for Christian service at home and around the world. The training event provides the theological foundation for missional living while learning the skills to partner and be culturally sensitive to the needs of those we serve.
Missional life is about God's mission in the world and may include construction, renewing of mission facilities, feeding, teaching, witnessing, conducting medical clinics, conducting Bible study or Bible School for children, and serving in disaster relief efforts around the world. This training is one avenue for these teens to develop spiritual leadership and missional focus to guide tomorrow’s church.
