Hey GO Team Leaders!
I hope you’ve all had a great week. Fridays feel a little different these days, but yay for the weekend nonetheless!
A few important updates about Teams:
- On Monday, May 18th at 7pm Cam will be hosting a ‘Family Meeting’ online to cast vision for what the next few months look like, what the plan is for re-opening services, make some announcements about Student programming, and address the most common questions. All of your teams will receive an email today encouraging them to tune in, please make an effort to do so as well so you’re fully informed.
- Our domestic June & July Teams will be receiving notices of cancellation early next week. Unfortunately, circumstances have simply not improved enough to make it possible for our teams to serve effectively. If your team is in this group please plan a time to meet with them in the next week or two to answer questions and pray together. Please also reach out to your ministry partner in the field to encourage them and ask how you can pray for and support them from a distance this summer. Lastly, make sure to keep an eye on the task in Managed Missions tracking their cancellation fund forms and follow up with anyone that has not turned one in within the first week.
- Teams scheduled to travel August thru the end of the year continue to be assessed on a case by case basis with our partners and Team Leaders. After speaking with some of you this week select teams from the fall will also receive notification of cancellation next week. Otherwise, all active teams will be reassessed again on June 1st and final decisions on every team will be made no later than 90 days before your scheduled departure for international trips. I am calling Team Leaders with any updates pertinent to your teams. If you have questions or would like to talk through your particular team’s situation before June 1st please don’t hesitate to call me!
- Thank you to those of you that signed up to brainstorm areas of our ministry for the future! If you signed up to participate in one of those conversations you’ll be receiving a calendar invitation next week! If you haven’t signed up yet, but you’d like to be included please use this quick form so we can make sure to send you an invite: https://compassionoutreach.com/2020-go-team-leader-brainstorms/
Please keep in touch with us regarding any updates to your team and ministry partners as you connect with them. We can’t thank you enough for your flexibility, prayers and faithfulness in this season to continue to disciple your teams and support our partners well!
