Release of Handbook for Mission Volunteers Announced

The information, below, is excerpted from the UMConnections Blog and is written by Linda Bloom:

“A Mission Journey: A Handbook for Volunteers” was developed by a task force of United Methodist Volunteers in Mission and international Volunteers in Mission. Included are team activities, a “best practices list” for hosting and sending teams and an appendix of related information.
Published by the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries, the book is a “vital tool” to help prepare for mission partnerships, writes Una Jones, the board’s staff executive for mission volunteers, in the foreword.
“We are in a new era of mission in which millions of people choose to engage in short-term mission and ministry outside large mission agencies, yet supported by the church,” she explains.
Print copies of A Mission Journey can be ordered through The Upper Room Bookstore. An e-book version is available for download through Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
