Community Overview   Video

Don’t just serve, let service change you! At a 2021 EM Mission Trip Summit in Fort Wayne, Indiana, your team will have the chance to grow in their faith and learn what it means to “Live Your Mission” in all aspects of daily life. Dive deeper into why it’s important to love your neighbor — and how to approach it in cross-cultural contexts. This 5-day summit will take place at EM's Headquarters in Fort Wayne with the hope of bringing teams together to learn, engage with meaningful ideas, and grow as a team.

The EM staff will lend decades of combined experience and expertise as we share training curriculum and personal stories from the field, as well as create meaningful opportunities for your team to serve and engage with the Fort Wayne community. Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn and grow together in 2021!

Health & Safety

EM's Health & Safety Plan

COVID-19: EM will be following necessary protocol to keep team members and local community members safe and healthy during each EM Mission Trip Summit this summer. You can read about our commitments to teams and communities here.

Staff safety certification: All EM Staff are certified in First Aid and CPR.

Medical kits: Medical kits that include first-aid supplies for general accidents and ailments are provided for each site. LIke all domestic locations, we ask that teams supply their own medications like Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Benadryl and Imodium as they deem necessary.

Emergency response plan: Based on the severity of each emergency, EM has a plan for appropriate response.

- If a team member becomes seriously ill, they will be taken to a local doctor to receive appropriate medical attention and medications. If they are a minor, their Team Leader along with our staff will accompany them to the clinic. If needed, their parents will be contacted. Their recovery will be carefully monitored by our staff.

- If there is an accident that requires a doctor, but is not life-threatening and does not have the potential to cause permanent damage, Experience Mission staff will locate the Team Leader, contact parents or guardians (providing the injured is a minor) and provide safe but quick transportation to a local clinic.

- In the event that an accident occurs which is life-threatening or has the potential for permanent damage, emergency medical care will be secured and arraignments will be made if necessary, to transport the injured person to the United States as quickly as possible providing they are serving in one of our International locations. In our domestic locations, local 911 services will be contacted immediately. The family will be contacted immediately to assist in guidance for appropriate response.

All medical care is the sole responsibility of the team member. Experience Mission requires every team member to be covered by domestic medical insurance.
