We are evaluating when we can move forward on future trips based on current COVID recommendations. See below for information from last year’s trip.
Be a part of the blind seeing, the lame walking, the deaf hearing, and thousands coming to salvation in four cities in North East Brazil!

TEAM MEMBER REQUIREMENTS
We do not expect you to be perfect and we will do a lot of training before the trip to help you get ready but there are certain requirements each applicant should meet before you apply.
Brazil team members must be:
Walking with Jesus and in love with Him.
18 years old or older, unless accompanied by a legal guardian (for minors with a guardian we accept ages 16 and up).
Physically healthy . . . enough to travel internationally and be on your feet and ministering for the majority of each day. While we do have some rest time each day, our schedule will be very busy.
Emotionally/mentally healthy . . . This trip is a time to pour out on and serve others. If you are in a season of needing a lot of ministry or inner healing for yourself then this isn’t the right trip for you right now.
Responsible financially . . . We’ll give you great fundraising tools and even links to set up your own web page with a financial tracker. We’ve never had a team member not go for lack of finances but you should know that you are responsible to make sure your trip gets paid for, if you back out, finances are NOT refundable, and if you miss payment deadlines you will be removed from the team.
Flexible and correctable . . . Sometimes our accommodations are beautiful and sometimes they are very basic. Sometimes plans change and sometimes leaders may need to help team members adjust their expectations or behavior in the best interest of our hosts. Team members need to be ready to adjust to change and trust that our leaders have everyone’s best interest at heart.
Prepared to prepare and connect . . . We’ll send you an email for the team each week and you should plan to spend 30-60 minutes a week doing something to get ready for the trip. We’ll have about 3 in person mandatory team meetings, have a closed Facebook group where team members can interact, and hope to assign each team member a mentor to connect with relationally. As of now we are planning to meet on March 1, April 19, and June 28 from approximately 2-4pm in the twin cities. For those not in the area you can join us online. We will confirm meeting times after you are accepted.
