Questions

Registration Agreement

Code of Conduct

Forward Edge International is committed to cultural and spiritual sensitivity at each of its locations. Therefore, all employees, volunteers and team members must agree to withhold from any activity that may compromise the overall relationships and effectiveness of its services while on location. All employees, volunteers and team members are asked to refrain from alcohol consumption, drug use, questionable or vulgar language, public displays of affection or any other culturally offensive behavior while on location with the team.

I understand the expectations and guidelines during this trip with Forward Edge International and agree to adhere to Forward Edge's Code of Conduct while on location with the team.

Photo & Video Release

I further understand that photos and videos taken of me during my mission trip may be used by Forward Edge International at their discretion unless I request otherwise.

Non-Refundable Administrative Fees

I understand that a portion of my team fees is a non-refundable administrative fee. I also understand that if I cancel within 30 days of my trip's departure date, my team fees are not refundable.

Coordination Agreement

I understand the trip fee includes food, lodging and on-site transportation, an experienced facilitator, practical preparatory materials, medical insurance and logistical coordination. It does not include transit expenses to location, such as airfare. Specific medical insurance costs for both international and domestic trips is included in your trip fees.

I understand that there will be a trained FEI Facilitator acting as a liaison between the team, field staff, and those we serve. The Facilitator is a volunteer who has been extensively trained by FEI to serve alongside and support the team in every way. The Facilitator coordinates morning devotions and evening debriefs with the team and leads a re-entry session to prepare the team for their arrival back home. I will take responsibility for ensuring that I honor these scheduled times of meeting by attending and participating.

There will be at least 10 people participating on this team. If the number of participants is less than 10 people, FEI reserves the right to increase trip fees or to cancel the trip.

I understand that I am responsible for making sure that all payments are made by the due dates agreed upon by Forward Edge International. Payments may be made either online or by check. Please include your team number on ALL payments.

A team member who notifies FEI of their intent to cancel their participation in this team at least 30 days before departure date is entitled to a partial refund of funds paid above the non-refundable deposit. Any cancellations made less than 30 days prior to the departure date are not entitled to a refund of trip fees.

Any request for reimbursement for cancellation, overpaid trip fees, or extra donations, etc. is the responsibility of the team member to research and request.

As a team member, I agree to adequately prepare myself for the mission trip experience using Forward Edge training materials.

Although FEI is a Christian organization, we welcome participation from all people desiring to serve. We have found such relationships to be beneficial to all involved, provided they are approached with sensitivity. Our field partnerships are with indigenous Christians--usually churches--and it is important to our ongoing work that team members be sensitive to their beliefs as well as to their culture. Please read and consider our statement of faith. If you feel that you can work side by side with us, we welcome you to join us in our humanitarian endeavors.

I agree to purchase flights based on the instructions that FEI provides for my trip. I also understand that FEI advises me to research and purchase travel insurance for my airfare in the event that there is an interruption of my trip (natural disaster, illness prior to my departure, etc.).

As a ministry partner serving vulnerable children, I agree to provide 3 references to Forward Edge International prior to serving on location.

I have read and agree to work according to FEI's Statement of Faith listed below:

  1. We believe in God the Father, who through Christ created the heavens and earth, who is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power.
  2. We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, fully God and fully man, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, sinless in this life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His death on the cross.
  3. We believe in His resurrection, His ascension into heaven, and His high-priestly intercession for His people that they may experience full salvation and His indwelling presence.
  4. We believe in His personal, visible return to earth according to His promise.
  5. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Godhead, sent to convict the world of sin, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower those who believe in Jesus Christ.
  6. We believe that all people by nature and by choice are sinners, but that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
  7. We believe that those who put their faith in Christ as Lord and Savior will rejoice in God's presence for eternity, but those who refuse to put their trust in Him will be forever separated from Him.
  8. We believe that the Bible is God's Word, divinely and uniquely inspired, absolutely trustworthy, and having supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  9. We believe in the Church, the body of Christ, of which Christ Himself is the Head, and of which all regenerated people are members.
  10. We believe that Christ commissioned the Church to proclaim the gospel in word and deed throughout the world, to encourage believers in the faith, and to teach and train believers in the principles of godly, fruitful living.

I understand FEI's Core Values listed below and agree to uphold them with the team as we prepare and travel with Forward Edge:

  • GOD INITIATED: Glorify God and further His purposes by responding to HIS initiatives
  • SERVANTHOOD: Have the same attitude Jesus had (Phil. 2)
  • PEOPLE: Love people more than projects
  • MEETING NEEDS: Address the needs of the poor, the marginalized and the overlooked
  • PARTICIPATION: Provide opportunities for ordinary people to participate firsthand in furthering God's kingdom
  • CHANGED LIVES: Provide opportunities that result in personal transformation
  • PARTNERSHIPS: Build and maintain meaningful partnerships
  • EMPOWERING NATIONALS: Don't do things for people; do things with people
  • INTEGRITY: Live lives consistent with our professed beliefs
  • STEWARDSHIP: Wisely steward God's resources

I agree to uphold FEI's Code of Conduct personally and with the team while on location. Forward Edge is committed to cultural and spiritual sensitivity at each of its locations. Therefore all employees, volunteers and team members must agree to uphold the dress code and withhold from any activity that may compromise the overall relationships and effectiveness of its service while on location. In general, all employees, volunteers and team members are asked to refrain from alcohol consumption, drug use, questionable or vulgar language, public displays of romantic affection or any other culturally offensive behavior while on location with the team.

In order to honor our relationships with our partners, Forward Edge International reserves the right to determine whether or not a team member is fit to serve on location.
