We started a journey and friendship last year with El Buen Pastor Church in Becal, Campeche, Mexico. We're so excited to be going back this year! We're so glad you're thinking of applying!
This is no ordinary trip for our youth ministry, nor our church. Commitment to all trainings, financial deadlines, and fundraisers are essential. As part of your commitment, you will fill out this application, and hand a $200 deposit by Sunday, March 11. If writing a check, you can make it out to “Calvary Reformed Church” and put “Mexico Learning Trip” in the memo.
If you are invited onto the team, this deposit is non-refundable since we have to lock in transportation arrangements. Space is limited to 9 students on this trip, so not everyone who applies will be invited. Take your application responses seriously, considering we have to make decisions based on these responses and potential interviews.
If you are writing a check, you can make it out to “Calvary Reformed Church” and put “Mexico Learning Trip” in the memo. We will have several fundraising opportunities available, and current fundraising opportunities are being scheduled. The total cost for the trip must be supplied by June.
We will have several fundraising opportunities available, and will have a calendar for those who are accepted to go on the trip. Anyone not invited to the team will receive their $200 deposit back. However, once you are accepted on the team, this deposit is non-refundable. Your received deposit along with this application is the official submission for the application. Failure to submit deposit before the deadline will not be considered a received application.
Thanks for considering this trip, and we are excited to see what God does through it this summer. If you have any questions, you can contact Jill Zuber (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dan Carter (email@example.com), or Mike Lamson (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by calling 616.392.8559 x16 We look forward to getting to know you better!
