Steps to join Don’t forget to pray through everything! Step 1 Please read all the information. If you are unsure about the details do ask us at [email protected]. Step 2 Talk to those who will be supporting you in this. This will include the leaders in your Church, maybe your parents and some close friends. Think through with them where the money will come from. If you have done this before your initial request for information, even better! Step 3 Ask us for the link to the online application form and then complete it. Please let us know your first and second choice of outreach/dates. Places fill up very quickly and we cannot always guarantee your first choice. We ask for the address of two referees (but may only contact one of them). One person should be your pastor or another church leader who has known you for at least two years. We cannot process your application until we have written to your referee and received the reference form. If you’re a student it would be helpful to have contact with your home and student church if you have both. When we have received your application form we will write to them asking for a reference. Try to pick someone who not only knows you well but will support you through the whole process including after you get back. Confirm whether you’re paying the £50 non-refundable deposit online, sending in a cheque or phoning to pay by card on 01691 776711 (this is your first payment and is included in the prices quoted on the information sheets). [We’ll acknowledge receipt of your application and payment and contact your referee.] Step 4 After we have received your references we will inform you of the status of your application. If you have been accepted to join, we will send you confirmation of your acceptance, together with further information on travel, finance, etc. You book your own travel but we can provide advice on flights and will put you in touch with other applicants from the UK if there are any. If you need to get a DBS check through us we’ll send you details of how to apply online and what ID you need to send us. If you have a transferable one already, we’ll ask you for further details. Step 5 Make all your preparations, don’t forget to send us the money, travel & insurance details and GO! Step 6 Come back and tell us all about. We want to know the highlights and challenges you experienced. Step 7 Keep on reflecting on how this experience has changed you and how God wants you to apply it.
