  • Because I was already living in Thailand for two years before starting the mission volunteer training program, I was curious to see if it would still be helpful to me, or more like just "going through the motions." It turns out it was an invaluable process, forcing me to articulate thoughts, feelings and reactions to my experiences, and also to identify areas I can still improve on...and it was a lot of fun!
    Jessica Pellowe - Mission Volunteer to Thailand
  • In Spring I led a STM to Honduras, this wasn't my first time doing something like this but it was the first time that I had gone through the Best Prep Kit training. I wasn't a rookie, but I found the training to be really helpful and wished that I had the opportunity to do this ten years ago when I started leading STM trips. Everything was useful and valuable and I would highly recommend to anyone, no matter how experienced, that they avail themselves of this training. Mark Crocker was engaging, friendly and exceedingly helpful. I looked forward to my skype sessions with him. Keep up the good work.

  • The STM Network is a uniquely Canadian resource for all things short term missions. Any Canadian church that is serious about intentional and functional cross cultural ministry should consult with the STM Network.
    Ian Stokes, International Mobilization Manager for Samaritan's Purse Canada
  • Matt, people not only had fun, but learned a lot too about themselves and short-term missions.  Always love your training style and how you keep it from being monotonous or boring...so thanks for coming.
    Jeremy Albrecht - STM Team Leader for Mission El Salvador
  • Mark, we often speak with fondness of you and the work you did with and for us.  Very special memories indeed.
    Dave & Ann Brace - Mission Volunteers to Zambia
