Ready to go global?
If you are ready to take this exciting next step in your faith journey, here are some next steps that will help you prepare:
Complete a secure electronic application. There is no obligation in applying, but applications are the first step to joining a team. We need to know you are interested to send you information!
Many trips will not be cheap. Start saving money. And share with your friends and family about your future journey, many of them may want to help make that a reality!
We want to help make global trips possible for people on any budget. If you would like to apply for partial financial assistance, complete this form.
If you don’t have a passport and are traveling internationally, you will need one. Begin working on this immediately! These will be needed for obtaining visas prior to traveling.
Even before the teams begin meeting, spend time studying about the area you plan to visit. Any information you find will be helpful in connecting you with the community you will be visiting.
Check out the Journey Guide
You will receive a booklet called the Journey Guide. These are given to all of our CATC Global Outreach teams. These booklets offer general trip information and can give you a glimpse into what a trip with CATC might look like.
Go to the meetings!
At each of your pre-trip meetings you will receive labels to fill in parts of your journey, receive information on shots, trip expectations, group dynamic training, and much more. The more you participate, the more prepared you will be to experience the community you will be visiting.
There is no shortage of prayer as you prepare to travel. Share with God and others your fears and excitements. This will help you prepare spiritually for the journey that lies ahead!
