We allow children ages 15 and up to go on trips. However, all minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. All minors must fill out an application to be considered for a trip.
You should receive an email within minutes of applying, confirming that globalX has received your application. If you do not receive this email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each trip requires a different set of criteria for applicants. It is important that we place people on trips according to how best they fit the trip needs. This could include looking for people with specific skill sets or experiences. Please keep in mind that we may receive more applications than we have availability. Sometimes we simply don't have enough room to take all applicants. In addition, regular attendees of LifeBridge Church receive first eligibility to go on trips.
No, you are not committing by submitting your application. After the teams are selected, a team leader will contact you and confirm your commitment. Once committed, you are responsible to play for your plane ticket if for any reason you are unable to go on the trip.
You and the rest of your team will gather support from others. We have found that many people don't have the time or ability to go on a short-term mission trip but have the desire to be involved in some way. We ask, therefore, that every person going on a trip raise his/her funds by writing letters to friends and families, sharing the goal of the trip and the financial requirements to make the trip happen. Each year, hundreds of trip-goers raise thousands of dollars as their supporters generously join in the adventure of short-term mission trips.
Apply now for a passport if you don't have one.
After you receive your new passport number, update your application with that information. You will also need to make a copy of your passport application and/or passport and give it to your team leader at the first team meeting. As per new rules for international airline travel, we are required to obtain and send the expiration date of your passport for booking travel, so we will need that information as soon as possible. If your passport expires less than six months after your departure date, you will need to renew your passport as soon as possible. Additionally, if you have a non-US passport, you are responsible for finding out if a visa is required for you to travel to a specific country.
No. It is imperative for team unity and liability reasons that all trip participants travel together.
