Is this for me?

Ask any missionary and they will tell you (if they are feeling safe enough to tell the whole truth) that at times the most difficult leader to teach is someone who is successful. The truth is that international work is different than successful business or ministry back home. If you are willing, this process will stretch you.

Whether you are a new team leader, or you have been doing it for years, we all have something to learn. The best team leaders know that they can always learn more. If you want to grow your ability to lead teams, you need this resource.

How this works:

The Best Prep Kit is live, one-on-one coaching for a team leader to prepare his or her team for incredible international success. If you have ever wondered why some teams seem to work better than others, this coaching will provide you with concrete tools that meet and exceed the best practices in Short-Term Mission.

  • You gain access to exclusive resources you can immediately use
  • You receive the forms, templates and tools you need to manage any STM trip
  • You meet with a dedicated STM Network trainer live (on WebEx)
  • You are supported through all the phases of the trip (pre-departure, overseas and return)
  • You receive a personal plan and incredible training materials for all team sessions
  • You can ask and expect answers to your questions through email, text or a call

Your Opportunity, Our Guarantee

The STM Network has trained thousands of team members, and now we are offering our tools and resources for Team Leaders directly.  We are confident that we can make your job easier as a leader.

If you complete the training and it does not measure up to your standards, let us know and we will be happy to give you your money back. No risk to you!

We will give you all of the tools you need to successfully lead a team anywhere in the world. This process will save you time and money and make it look easy. You'll have an STM Network coach available to answer your specific questions. We will make our expertise and experience available to you when you need it. We are an email, call or text away.
