You are Needed!

Leaders are an important part of Teen Missions. We are grateful to everyone willing to donate their time to lead one of our teams. We give glory to God for the work that He has accomplished over the years.



Potential leaders must attend a Teen Missions Leader Training Seminar.  These seminars offer specialized training to prepare each leader for the upcoming summer. The seminar covers Teen Missions policies, training materials, leading youth, team unity, basic construction, cooking, evangelism and practical ideas and skills for your team. This seminar will prepare you for an adventurous and rewarding summer.

Leader Seminar Cost:

$69 seminar cost + $30 registration fee – single
$138 seminar cost + $30 registration fee – couple

Most seminars will begin Thursday, at 6:00 p.m., and end Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Food and lodging are included in the seminar cost, and there is no childcare available. Attendance at this seminar in no way obligates either the participant or Teen Missions.

Leader Training

  • Merritt Island, FL...June 11–14, 2024
  • Merritt Island, FL...November 1–4, 2024
A trip leader is an ordinary person with a desire to work with teens, preteens or kids. Each leader should have an interest in missions, a commitment to God’s service, and, most important, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Leaders are required to be 20 years of age (former team members must be 18 and recommended by their leaders). Leaders need to turn in six recommendations (including one from a pastor or church board), and a criminal background check (required by Florida State Law). All of the necessary forms are provided by Teen Missions.

Length of Involvement

Teen Trips—8-9 weeks (ages 13-20)

Preteen Trips—6 weeks (ages 10-12)


The involvement cost for leaders is offered at a discounted rate. The amount taken off of the price is dependent upon the Leadership position and the field of service. Please contact the Leader Placement Department at the Teen Missions base in Florida for specifics. Teen Missions provides prayer cards and support letters to help raise prayer and financial support. These are sent out after you have accepted your Team Leader assignment.


Leaders with Families

Children younger than the age of the group you are leading qualify as leader children. Their cost is based on airfare, food, and surface travel costs. Prayer cards and support letters are provided to help raise the cost of the children going on the team. If your child is in the age group of your team, he or she will be classified as a team member and must raise the total team member cost as listed in the Teen Missions brochure.
