Wonder what a Global Good trip looks like from start to finish?
The most important aspect of trip preparation is prayer. Praying and asking God if He is sending you to go and take part in the Great Commission. (Hint: If you are reading this, chances are you have already heard His whisper in your heart and are not here by accident.) The next step is to pray about where God might have you go. Is your heart burdened by a specific demographic, people group, country, or region?
Apply & Pay Deposit
Once you find the perfect trip for you, fill out the application and submit a non-refundable deposit to secure your spot. Your application will be reviewed and the Global Good team will notify you when you are accepted on the trip. Our acceptance rate is nearly 100%—we’re just screening for a few things to make sure you are a good fit for the particular trip you’re applying for!
Apply for/Renew Your Passport
After acceptance, this is a good time to renew or apply for a passport, if you don’t already have a current one. (Here are some helpful instructions!) It typically takes 4-6 weeks for a passport to arrive, so make sure to give yourself enough time!
You’ll be equipped with some ideas on how to raise the funds for your trip, so don’t let this part scare you! One of Satan’s most powerful tools in deterring people from participating in their part of the Great Commission can sound something like this, “The trip is how much? I can’t afford that. So now I have to ask other people for money? There is no way I am going to beg other people for money because _____.” We are here to walk alongside you through the entire process and make support raising a fun and stress-free experience.
Meet Your Team
Your team leader will schedule four team meetings with you. It is mandatory to make it to at least three of these, as this is the time where you can ask any questions you have, get to know the team and surround your trip in prayer. These meetings usually take place on Sunday afternoons and an incredibly important part of the pre-trip experience.
The wait is over! Pack your bags, meet at the airport at the assigned time and get ready for what God is going to do.
You are the hands and feet of Jesus. You get to do what Jesus did in the most real and raw way. Pray for the sick and widowed, empower leaders to impact their local communities and spread the Gospel of Jesus. There is no limit to what the Holy Spirit can do in and through you!
Return Home, Share and Go Again
After the trip, your leader will set up full debrief meeting to talk about next steps and how to stay continually involved! If you feel so called, go back to step one and start the process over again!
