Minimum requirements to automatically be considered for Mission Road Trip:
Please don’t look at this as a “road map” for discovering the least amount of involvement. The idea is to build a team that knows each other and can get along while serving our Lord!
• Attend at least 30 of 48 Sunday mornings/Wednesday nights between January 3 & June 15
• Participate in 2 out of 4 fundraisers
Failure to meet the above minimums will result in a “Contingent” status and your trip eligibility will be reviewed by HUMC staff.
• If space is available on the trip you will not automatically be allowed to participate if you haven’t met the minimum requirements. All factors** will be weighed on an individual basis. Some of the deciding factors can include but are not limited to “church over work”, desire/effort, previous like kind activities, yearlong participation, etc.

• Non-members attending all year will be considered equally with HUMC members.

• Illness with a Dr’s note and emergencies are the only acceptable reasons allowed to miss any of the above and still earn a monetary discount credit.

• School activities may be excused but will not receive monetary discount credit.

• “Work” is not an excuse for absences – set your priorities and adjust your schedule.

• All missed dates considered for exception require an e-mail to Kris explaining the absence.

**If needed, those attending travel activities will be selected using the following:
– Inclusive: Plays well with others, team player, unselfish
      6 points possible
– Effort: Are you trying to make it to all Youth stuff and are you trying to communicate when not.
      6 points possible
– Responsibility: Can you be trusted? How likely are you to abide by the “rules”?
      6 points possible
– Seniority by Grade/Age
      6th=0, 7th=1 8th=2, 9th=3, 10th=4, 11th=5, 12th=6
– Number of past “like kind” trips
      6 possible
