Specific Limitations Conditions:
Non-Discrimination Statement: Acceptance and participation in the program is the same for everyone without regard to race, color, national origin or gender.
Purpose: The purpose of Teen Missions teams is for ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His church, not sightseeing or shopping. Any available sightseeing and shopping will be permitted only if it coincides with the team's main purpose, but could be canceled if not deemed convenient for travel, time or if it hinders the ministry of the team.
You also help sponsor a National Teen: Included in the amount to raise is a sum enabling Teen Missions to cover the expense of a national teen from a third-world country to serve on a Teen Missions team in his country and other Teen Missions mission projects overseas.
Contributions Schedule: Contributions equal to involvement expense are based on current costs and are subject to increase. Dates, travel arrangements and schedules are subject to change. Teams or team members may be switched in the event of any crisis, political, natural, mission-related or for disciplinary reasons. All registrations and contributions are for the worldwide ministry of Teen Missions (not team members) and are non-refundable, non-transferable and not carried over for another year or to other individuals based on IRS guidelines. In the event of any cancellation (including no shows) after May 1, team member/leader may be held liable for airline penalty or entire cost of airfare and administration fee. In the event of political unrest, natural disaster or a problem with the hosting mission, Teen Missions decides if and where to send a team. In the event that a team is canceled for any reason or does not fill, team members may be assigned by Teen Missions to another team which may or may not be in the same area of the world. Contributions are non-refundable. (If registering after May 1st, a registration payment of $55 ($65 Canadian) is required plus half of the project expense.)
Promotion Release: Your participation on a Teen Missions team constitutes permission for your name, picture or written testimonies to be used in Teen Missions publications.
Conduct Discipline: Teen Missions is a highly disciplined organization with regulations in many areas including conduct, dress and Christian testimony. These are explained in the General and Specific Team Fact Sheets and in other information to team members, leaders and staff. Any member involved with drugs or sexual immorality, according to Biblical standards, including, but not limited to: fornication, adultery, homosexuality and premarital sex (Gen. 2:24-25; Ex. 20:14, 17, 22:19; Lev. 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16; Matt. 19:4-6, 9; Rom. 1:18-31; I Cor. 6:9-10, 15-20; I Tim. 1:8-11; Jude 7) will be sent home at team member's and/or parents' expense, without granting any clemency, so as not to destroy the testimony of the team or mission with which we are working. Drinking alcoholic beverages, smoking, stealing or open rebellion will not be tolerated. Legally married couples are accepted as leaders ONLY, not as team members. Living quarters may be provided for them as husband and wife. Due to the no pairing off policy, dating or engaged couples may not go on the same team as team members (or leaders).
