This Fundraising Guide was created for short-term teams and is a great starting place for anyone raising funds. The guide has support letter templates, unique ideas, prayer card templates, a Biblical framework for fundraising, and more!
PARTICIPANT GUIDED JOURNAL
We offer a guided journal to accompany your short-term mission experience. This journal has lined pages, prompts for self-reflection, questions for team discussion, a debrief guide, and more!
The cost is $12/person, and we can ship them directly to your church before your trip begins.
There are several forms we need each participant to sign and return to us to have on file before you begin your short-term mission experience.
- All forms should be signed and turned in using this form: Access all participant forms here.
Each participant serving on a GP field must sign the forms linked above.
GLOBAL HEALTH INSURANCE
You must be covered by a global health insurance plan to serve in one of our fields.
- We suggest using Faith Ventures to purchase your global health insurance for each team participant.
All visitors and volunteers to a GP mission field are required to complete a background check and have it on file with our office.
- We suggest using Protect My Ministry for all background checks.
FLIGHTS & VISAS
We have a long-standing partnership with Golden Rule Travel. They are great to work with and will find your team the best deals on flights.

Depending on what mission field you are serving with, you may need to purchase a visa to enter the country. Speak with the mission field leaders who are hosting your team to find out if this is needed for you.
