The first stop FOR ALL TEAMS will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams, learning the skills you need to carry out your assignment. You will then travel to the field to spend your summer carrying out the task you've prepared for. At the end of the summer, travel back to a joint debrief, sharing all that God has done.
Team members will not return home over the course of the summer. It is also preferred that family/friends not visit the ministry site to allow team member to focus on ministry. Participants must commit to the entire program from orientation to debrief.
