At Christ Church Birmingham, we want to faithfully equip people to serve on short term mission trips. The following video and items make up our Christ Church Mission Trip 101 training session. This session is designed to be completed for all team members serving on a Christ Church Mission Trip. Since the training doesn’t change for Mission Trip Training 101, those who have completed the training will not need to repeat the training on future trips. Begin by watching the Mission Trip Training 101 video.
