SHARE HIM MISSION TRIPThe Goal: Develop in your young adults (age 18-35) a passion for sharing the gospel and a mentoring relationship with you, their pastor, leading to greater involvement in ministry and leadership back at home. How It Works: A ShareHim trip is more like a visit with church family than a mission trip, as local church members graciously invite us to join them in their ongoing evangelistic ministry. Each participant—including you—is assigned to a local church and preaches an 11-part evangelistic series in English or Spanish using customizable ShareHim sermons, no preaching experience required. Who Can Participate: This program is open to NAD pastors who are currently assigned to a church by their conference and have not accepted a call to a new district. You can have 3, 4, or 5 people in your group (including you). You must bring 2 young adults (age 18-35) not related to you or your spouse. You can also bring up to 2 more people from this list: 1) Your spouse; 2) Other young adults, related to you or not; 3) The spouse (any age) of a participating young adult; 4) Children age 14-17 of yours or someone else’s in your group. Please note that you cannot bring children under age 14 or anyone you don’t sign up.
