What are the accommodations?

Your team will stay at Mission Housing Ministries which is set up like a boarding house with shared bathrooms down the hall.

What will we eat?

Juana and Esperanza clean and cook for our teams. Learning from years of experience, there are particular cleaning and food preparation processes that help keep teams healthy and strong for ministry. The meals are always good and have an authentic local flair.

What are the requirements?

Must regularly attend The Bayou Church
All applicants must regularly attend Sunday services. Applications from other churches or denominations will be accepted, but priority is given to members of The Bayou Church.
Attend all team meetings
Each mission team meets six-seven times before departure to learn about the mission area's culture, plan trip activities, and bond as a team. Additionally, each team has a pre-departure dinner for family members as a celebration. 
Meet all payment requirements
All attendees make three payments: initial deposit, airline payment, and final payment. Amounts and deadlines will be shared at the first team meeting.
 
Complete First Steps classes before mission departure
In First Steps classes, you will discover who we are, meet some of our staff, and connect with others at The Bayou Church. The classes are four consecutive Sundays, starting with Step One on the first Sunday of the month (February - May & August-November) at the 11:00am service in the Ministry Center classroom. We invite you to jump in at any time.
