A VOICE trip is not a normal short term mission trip. An applicant must be prepared to live and minister on a team for up to 11 months. With this in mind, we carefully consider all of our applicants, looking for people with good character, spiritual maturity, and a willingness to serve.
In the application you will be asked some self-evaluating questions. We are not looking for "perfect people", but we know that as you minister, you will face difficulties, challenges and times of discouragement. Your self-evaluation will give the VOICE staff and your team leader important information that we need as we endeavor to minister and grow together. We ask that you take time to carefully and honestly answer the questions in the application.
How To Apply
