Seminar: Help! We’re Going on a Short-Term Trip • Maryland/D.C. • Oct 25-26, 2019

Friday, October 25, 2019, 5:00 PM

SEMINAR OVERVIEW CULTURELink seminars and resources are designed to equip you to make disciples of those who will make disciples of all nations. CULTURELink partners with mission organizations and churches to train them in the “how-to’s” of team development while preparing them for cross-cultural challenges. This class allows team leaders the opportunity to experience being part of a team themselves prior to assuming their leadership roles. While simulating the process of equipping a short-term team, our seminars are informative, interactive, and highly relational. Each participant receives a Team Leader’s Manual complete with lesson plans for training sessions, step-by-step guidelines for discipling team members, and directives for planning the logistics of a short-term mission trip. Participants also receive a Team Member’s Manual filled with a collection of articles, devotions, and worksheets that cover all aspects to develop effective cross-cultural servants. Whether providing disaster relief, correcting social injustices, meeting physical needs, or expanding and developing Christian ministries, CULTURELink’s practical training and resources prepare teams to successfully integrate into new cultural environments. SEMINAR INSTRUCTOR Led by an experienced CULTURELink instructor, seminar participants are guided through ten training sessions that equip them to prepare their teams before, during, and after their cross-cultural experience. This seminar will be taught by Larry Ragan, founder of CULTURELink. Larry brings experience from over 50 countries. He has led professional exchanges, English language classes, outreaches, prayer teams, building projects, disaster relief teams, and more. He has led or overseen more than 250 teams. Additionally, Larry teaches for Perspectives on the World Christian Movement courses. He previously served as a Missions Pastor and Teaching Pastor at two different churches. Larry and his wife, Karen, also served as missionaries in Budapest, Hungary. They live in Atlanta with their two kids, a dog, four cats, one fish, and one frog...the animal count changes daily. *On occasion, the class instructor changes due to scheduling conflicts. WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING I have experienced the damage, locally and globally, that short-term teams can cause to the work that took long-term missionaries years to build because of a lack of training. Having now received numerous teams trained by CULTURELink, our local and global ministries have been blessed. This training helps to deploy servants that build up our work and partner with us for the long haul. ~ Adili Kea  • Liaison, Royal Kids School (Kenya); Director of Operations, Atlanta Dream Center I wish I had this training six years ago. I’ve been on thirty international trips, but through this training I have learned so much about leadership, team building skills, and spiritual & practical preparation for my teams. ~ Seminar Participant • Woodstock, GA SEMINAR SPECIFICS When: October 25 - 26, 2019Where: First Baptist Church Glenarden (Worship Center), Room 1305, 600 Watkins Park Dr, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774Cost: $179.00 (includes: Seminar Instruction, Interactive Materials, Team Member’s Manual, Team Leader’s Manual, Dinner on Friday, and Breakfast & Lunch on Saturday) SEMINAR SCHEDULE FRIDAY • October 25 5:00 - 5:30PM: Registration & Light Dinner 5:30 - 9:00PM Short-term Missions Training Philosophy Session 1: Getting Started SATURDAY • October 26 7:30 - 8:00AM: Continental Breakfast 8:00AM - 12:00PM Session 2: Cultural Research Session 3: Becoming Cross-cultural Session 4 & 5: Ministry Preparation & Team Building 12:00 - 12:30PM: Lunch 12:30 - 2:30PM The Seven-Step Process Session 6: Travel, Packing, and Health Session 7: Final Countdown 2:30 - 5:00PM Session 8: Living the Experience Session 9: Debriefing and Re-entry Session 10: Home and Looking Forward LODGING NEARBY  Courtyard Marriott - Larg0/Beltway • (301) 925-1400 DoubleTree by Hilton • (301) 773-0700
