Have you ever wondered what it takes to plan a short-term mission trip? Do you have a strong interest, but lack experience, in planning such a trip? Or are you looking to share best practices with others who are doing similar work? If your answer to any of the above questions is yes, then this workshop is for you. Learn how you might establish or strengthen a mission partnership in the Dominican Republic. Come and see what is possible when we go global with God.
A one-page flyer for this event is available here.
An online album of photographs from a similar event held in November 2013 in the Diocese of East Carolina is available here.
