Mission and Coordination Teams
We take U.S. mission teams of five (5) people to help us with our training conferences. Interested in going with us? We intentionally keep our U.S. teams small so that we can work well with an in-country Coordination Team. This Coordination Team consists of 10-12 church leaders who have completed at least one PPI course. These brothers and sisters work with us joyfully and tirelessly to put together all aspects of the conference.
