If you're signed up to go on one of the International Spring Break Trips or are still thinking about it, come out to this training meeting! We will talk about the support raising process. Support raising is asking others to partner with you in prayer and financial support to do God's work. We will walk you through the process on why we raise money this way and how to do it.
If you didn't give in your deposit yet, you can come out and give it there.
Essentially, if you're even thinking about an international Spring Break Trip, you should be here.
