Majoring in the Minors: Avoiding Blind Spots When Building your Mission Team

Faith Hall Stage Side

Mission trips are an amazing opportunity for both the teams going and the people served. However, often times the teams are not reflective of the sending group's local area demographics. This puts the whole body of Christ at a disadvantage, as the body is strongest when it has all its parts functioning together. How can we increase matriculation of minority groups on trips and thereby increase our effectiveness both back home and abroad?


• Identify the need for more minority groups on mission trips.
• Recognize how blind spots can often limit a team's full potential.
• Give tangible tactics that can be used to increase minority matriculation on mission trips.
• Encourage an environment that fosters minority leadership for future trips.
