Frequently Asked Questions
For more information about any of these trips, or to apply, please contact Valerie Nolan at email@example.com.
Depending on the trip, we allow children ages 10 and up to be considered. All minors must go through the application process and be accompanied by a parent if selected.
Each trip requires a different set of criteria for applicants. We place people on trips according to the needs and priorities of the partners we are serving on the ground. Specific skills and experience play highly into the process of choosing team members.
Please keep in mind that we receive more applications than we have availability. People who attend Fairfax Church and are already connected with our local outreach teams are given first priority. It is our hope that people who are interested, but unable to attend would connect with the team in other ways, such as giving financially or coming alongside the team as a prayer partner.
We will be in touch with each person that applies to let them know if they are selected. If you are not selected due to any reason, we hope to have a conversation with you and help you connect in other ways and wait list for future trips. There are several opportunities to serve with one of our local outreach teams right here in the community and we encourage you to get involved with local outreach while waiting for the right opportunity to take a trip overseas.
No, you are not committing by submitting your application. After the teams are selected, a team leader will contact you and confirm your commitment.
Once committed, you will be attending a few team meetings to help you prepare for the trip and get to know each other. Those meeting dates and times are decided based upon availability of the majority of the team and the team leader. Once plane tickets are purchased, you are responsible to pay for your plane ticket if for any reason you are unable to go on the trip.
You and the rest of your team will fundraise for support from others. We have found that many people don’t have the time or ability to go on a short-term mission trip but have the desire to be involved in some way. We ask, therefore, that every person going on a trip raise his/her funds by writing letters to friends and family sharing the goal of the trip and the financial requirements to make the trip happen. We have templates and sample letters to help you. We have seen over and over again God provide the funding for dozens of global impact trip participants. It is an exciting step of faith and growth in our walk with Christ.
Please note: Money raised over the amount needed for the trip will go into the general trip fund and be used for future global impact trips. Money that is not raised prior to departing for the trip will be due in full by each individual before they can participate in the trip.
