Orlando Missions Advisory Board

On January 26, Raptim Humanitarian Travel, with the support of our partners, Emirates Airline, Clements Worldwide and Western Union, hosted the first Orlando Missions Advisory Board. The topic of conversation was “Serving Safely – Risk Management for your Staff and Volunteers.” The guest list included representatives from New Tribes Mission, The Rafiki Foundation, World Hope, First Baptist Church of Windermere and Avalon Church, as well as, Catalyst Coach Ministries and Bread of Life.

The first of its kind, this forum was designed specifically for the faith-based, mission organization. Attendees came from mission agencies, churches, local outreach, and other ministries. The afternoon kicked off with a luncheon, and segued into a lively discussion. The conversation provided a platform for the attendees to share policies, procedures, and lessons learned; along with a generous sprinkling of wonderful stories.

Time went by so quickly! The last half hour allowed those attending to meet each other, network, and to continue the discussion. Lingering was encouraged!

The next Orlando Missions Advisory Board is being planned for August 2017. Additional information will be presented in the coming weeks. We hope you can join us!
