First Step

(for potential full-time staff missionaries)

Do you feel the Lord tugging you toward full-time Christian service? First Step is a six day seminar designed to learn about Teen Missions staff policies, missionary life and the basics of support raising as well as giving you the opportunity to meet the full-time staff missionaries of Teen Missions.

Participants visit each of our departments, tour our headquarters, and learn about our long-term overseas ministries and opportunities. A meeting with Teen Missions Founder/Director Robert M. Bland is held at the end of the seminar in order to explore possible ways of matching your talents and abilities with current needs within the ministry of Teen Missions. First Step is intended to provide a way to determine whether or not Teen Missions is where God might be calling you!

Team Leaders Seminar is required for all summer trip leaders. First Step is required for all potential full-time staff. Attending First Step does not obligate you to serve with Teen Missions. First Step participants can, at their option, also attend the Mission Trip Leaders Seminar.

  1. Thomas Staub Sr.

    I am a former Teen Member serving on the 1976 england team Is was 16 years old at the time. I am retired from US Navy (submarines) that have come across your your site. I live in Kingsland Ga. which is about 2.5 hours from your home office. I am married with three adult Children, two are about to enter into christian service. I have a wide range of experiences that I believe that your ministry could use. I am a Chef instructor at a correctional facility in Georgia were I live, I have been a Bus driver for the local school system, I am involved in prison ministry. And I have a love for the lost and want to get the word out. Teen Missions was a turning point for me as a young person and is the point where I had all the knowledge of the Savior and accepted him as Lord. Thanks you Teen Missions for being a part of my life and making a difference in the lives of young people all across this nation. Thanks for listening.

    • Thomas, Thank you for your post. If you are interested in serving as full-time staff or volunteering this summer, please give our office a call (321-453-0340).
