In the August 2018 issue of StewardCAST, LCMS Stewardship explains how mission trips can be a great teaching and forming tool for stewards.
The lessons can be much greater than a participant’s feelings and experience — they can be formational and lasting.
A mission trip’s purpose is more externally focused, and missionaries should seek to build relationships and partnerships even more than creating memories.
The memories created and the lessons learned are much more of an unintended consequence of the serving rather than the central goal.
