WHEN IS MY APPLICATION DUE?
Each GO! Team has a different application deadline – you will find this listed on the team specific Info Sheets. Applicants will be notified of acceptance VIA EMAIL the week following the application deadline.
**Please note that “applying” is not the same as “registering”. Space on GO! Teams are limited – not everyone who applies may be accepted onto a team.
DO I NEED TO REGULARLY ATTEND GATEWAY IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE ON A TEAM?
If you currently attends a local church that offers similar serving teams we highly encourage you to participate on a team with your own church. If you are not already part of a local church that offers mission teams you are welcome to apply for a GO! Team!
DO I NEED TO BE A CHRIST-FOLLOWER TO PARTICIPATE?
While your current spiritual temperature and/or life stage may determine the teams that you are ready and able to participate on, there are no spiritual requirements to apply for a GO! Team.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE EXTRA FUNDS IF I RAISE MORE MONEY THAN I NEED FOR MY GO! TEAM?
Any overage of funds from one individual are used to offset other team participants who may come up financially short of their total cost when raising support.
HOW DO I FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH I PAY AND HOW MUCH I RAISE?
Your deposit is the amount that you personally pay on/before the first training. We then ask that you raise the remaining cost by building a support team. For example, if you are traveling to Haiti, you will pay $300 towards your deposit and raise $1500 by building a support team. These amounts combined will total the $1800 team cost.
HOW WILL I KNOW HOW MUCH I HAVE RAISED THROUGHOUT THE GO! TEAMS PROCESS? When you apply for a GO! Team you automatically create an account with our online management system, Managed Missions. Once accepted onto a team, you will be able to log into your account at any point to view your financial status. You will also be able to see what forms may be outstanding, view upcoming training dates or tasks, and also download any missing forms related to your specific GO! Team.
WHERE DO I ACCESS ANY NECESSARY FORMS THAT I MAY BE MISSING?
All forms will be handed out to your team trainings. They will then also be available for download directly from your Managed Missions account!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T RAISE MY TOTAL GO! TEAM COST?
In many instances we are able to offset your total cost with overage from other team members. However, this is not always the case. Per the signed Team Agreement, you do commit to cover the entirety of the GO! Team cost prior to your departure on their team. If you have specific questions about your support status don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IF I MISS A TRAINING?
We completely understand that life happens, and things come up! However, what we ask is that you prioritize for all trainings. If you already know that you can’t make most of the training prior to applying, please reconsider applying. In the event that you do miss a training please make sure to communicate this to the Team Leader – they will follow up with you on any pertinent information.
