MVA Short Term Team Training

  • Our commitment is to send out well trained, effective, and culturally sensitive teams that will make a difference in the lives of the people they will be serving.

Experienced staff from MVA are available take teams through a detailed training program that will equip both the individual and the team. This training involves team members meeting together weekly to work through what we call the Seven Essentials of Short-Term Team Training, which include…

  • Dealing with Expectations
  • Hearing the Voice of God,
  • Identity
  • Unity
  • Giving up our Rights (including conflict resolution),
  • Spiritual Warfare,
  • Cross Cultural Preparation, Re-Entry Preparation and Logistical Preparation

If preferred MVA can supply the teaching resources and the team can do their own training
