The commitment of the mission trip is to "serve and not to be served." CMMA has, therefore, established some guidelines to help everyone obtain this goal.
1. Due to the number of students, conditions of project, and foreign culture, our students, physicians and staff will need to set aside some of their personal preferences, habits, and schedule to fulfill the mission of the project.
2. CMMA is an inter-denominational ministry that uses Holy Scripture as its sole authority. We understand that there are variations in practice and understanding of Scripture in some areas of Christian living. In order to provide an environment that is conducive to meeting the above purpose, participants will agree to abide by the standards of CMMA in areas such as dress, entertainment, activities, etc. We expect participants to not engage in alcohol, drug, or tobacco use and to be a willing participant in all cultural, regional, church, and group activities with sensitivity to cultural and biblical standards.
3. Participants will seek to provide excellent medical care and to represent Jesus Christ.
A. I have read the application, accept its provisions, and agree to live, work and serve in accordance with them.

C. I have an insurance plan sufficient for any medical or liability costs. CMMA will not be held responsible for situations of this nature.
D. I, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, in consideration of my admission to volunteer service and other good and valuable considerations, do hereby release and forever discharge CMMA from liability for any claim or demand that I or my heirs, executors, administrators or assigns might otherwise assert upon the basis of any of the foregoing.
E. In volunteering, I recognize that I do not become an agent or employee of CMMA in rendering my services, and I agree to hold CMMA harmless from any claim that might arise out of any acts performed by me while serving as a CMMA volunteer.
