Seminar Overview

Help! We’re Going on a Short-Term Trip!… is a highly relational, informative, and interactive seminar. Whether you’re preparing your teams or investigating short-term possibilities, you will benefit greatly.

This seminar relays valuable information by simulating the process of equipping a short-term team. You will not only learn about leading, you will experience being a team member. CULTURELink training emphasizes people development as well as ministry preparation.

What others are saying

… voted most helpful seminar at the ACMC National Conferences.

If the 55 teams I received in Albania had half of this training, our projects would have been so much deeper and more significant.
~Cori Crawford, Campus Crusade for Christ

… not only practical, but spiritual. I didn’t expect the seminar to be this spiritually motivating. I left inspired, convicted, and personally transformed.
~Seminar Participant, Fellowship Bible Church – Little Rock
