New Team Leaders

Welcome new team leaders! Thank you for volunteering to serve in a leadership role on one of the 50+ short-term mission teams through Lipscomb Missions. Without the dedication and commitment of you and others like you, we would not be able to annually provide opportunities to over 700 students, alumni, fac/staff, and friends of the university to serve others and serve the Lord by actively participating in God's mission to the world.

If you are interested in becoming a mission team leader, please fill out the form at the following link: New Team Leader Application

If you would like to propose a new mission effort to Lipscomb Missions, please fill out this form: New Trip Application (Primary Team Leader only)

To view current leadership needs within mission trips, check the Existing Leadership Needs page.

We hope you find the information in this section and the other sections of Team Leader Central helpful as you begin to understand and fulfill your role as a mission team leader. As you begin to explore this section, please review the team leader Roles & Responsibilities.

Next, look through the Trip Planning Guide. This comprehensive section offers details on major facets of planning and executing a short-term mission trip. Be sure to look at the Mission Trip Timelines for our step-by-step recommendations on when to complete the various aspects of planning your trip.

We offer multiple events and training sessions throughout the year for both team leaders and team members. View the calendar on the Team Leaders homepage and the Team Leader Training page for material from those sessions.
