Our Team Leaders are prayerfully chosen by our Outreach Staff. All Team Leaders are members of Compassion Christian and are chosen because they’ve demonstrated servant leadership both in the Outreach and other ministries of our church. Team Leaders must be committed to the discipleship of their team members and have experience in one-on-one discipleship. They must also be able to coordinate the extensive administrative tasks necessary for the team as well as contribute to the care of our partners in the field. Generally speaking, all of our Team Leaders have participated as members of teams to the locations where they are leading and most have traveled to that missionary partner multiple times. Many of our Team Leaders lead year after year and some have led more than 20 teams to the field! Every Team Leader participates in additional trainings with our Outreach staff and undergoes individual and team evaluations after every trip.
