Missions Fund Giving is how Bent Tree funds our Missions budget. Your gifts to missions are donations beyond giving to the general fund and extend Bent Tree’s missions initiatives here and around the world. When you give to the Missions Fund, 100% of your giving goes to support our Mission Strategy. None of it is used for overhead or staff salaries.
Passports must be obtained through the Department of Homeland Security. *Please note: Passports must be valid within six months after your return to the U.S.A.
Requirements are based on your destination and provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Your healthcare provider and team leader can also make recommendations.
Participants are required to raise the necessary prayer and financial support for their mission journey. Any funds not raised by the deadlines must be covered by the individual team member. Bent Tree Missions is not responsible for covering the expenses of a team member in the event of a team shortfall. Your team leader will go over this in detail in one of your first training sessions.
The support you raise covers your travel expenses, evacuation insurance, food, lodging, visas, ministry expenses, and local ground transportation. Participants are responsible for passport and immunization expenses, personal needs, and souvenirs.
Bent Tree Missions will provide individual insurance for the dates you will be on your mission journey. Although there will be limited medical benefits, the main purpose for this insurance is for emergency medical evacuation expenses. Team members are required to have their own health insurance in place for all Bent Tree mission journeys.
Bent Tree partners with national leaders, missionaries, and agencies who are seeing to it that no one misses the grace of God. All global mission journeys are linked to our long-term missions efforts. It is our desire to be a blessing to those we serve with, to be a source of encouragement, and to assist them in the ministry God has called them to in their own countries.
