Baylor Missions Team Leader Grant Covenant


Baylor Missions would not exist without you. We know that you lead mission trips with us because you feel called by God to engage, along with students, in transformational, faith-informed engagement around the world. We do too.

Just as you commit to excellence every day in your department, we commit to excellence in our program. We strive to be a community on campus that supports holistic kingdom engagement, provides resources to engage spiritual reflection, and empowers missional living. We commit to serve with you as we serve our students.

By receiving the BUMissions Team Leadership Grant, we ask you to commit to completing the requirements of all Team Leaders (see below).
