"Sentinel Training: Safeguarding Mission Volunteers in International Travel"
The heart of the Mississippi Baptist Convention is missions and sharing the Good News of Jesus. In today’s world, travel safety is a significant concern. The Missions’ departments (Missions Mobilization, Men’s and Women’s Ministry and Collegiate Ministry) of MBCB wants to assist volunteers in traveling safely. Because we continue to be missional and serve in the difficult areas, we must do our part in preparing our people.”
In an effort to better prepare volunteers, we are offering “Sentinel Training” to our churches, associations, Baptist Student Unions and any other groups that participate in mission activities. This is a faith-based training that offers participants effective and proven strategies for traveling safely.
Training topics include: a faith-based perspective, tips for safe travel, minimizing personal harm to participants and recipients of ministry, surviving criminal acts, avoiding/surviving hostage situations, maximizing personal survival and minimizing exploitation, creating a sense of control in a chaotic situation, and response to detention by officials.
