Five Tips to Debrief Well Each Evening of Your Mission Trip

1. Worship
  • Always try to have a time of music and worship to begin the meeting. We feel like this sets the atmosphere, re-centers the focus for the meeting and brings about a specific unity among the members of the team.
  • Music tends to warm people up to speaking more openly together. 
2. Have leading questions
  • Have a prepared question to promote good conversation! Some of our favorites are: 
  • If you were to Tweet right now to sum up your day - what would it say? 
  • What was something you experienced today that you’ve never experienced before? 
  • Did you see God working in another member of your team today? 
3. New sharing strategies
  • Partner share - group everyone up in pairs, have them share a highlight and a lowlight from the day
  • Open share - open up the floor for anyone to share
  • Nomination share - the group can nominate someone they know has a great story to share
4. Share a lesson
  • God’s the God of the NATIONS - not just your hometown
  • Material Poverty is not the only kind of poverty
  • Relationships matter - why it’s important to know the name of those you are connecting with
  • Bringing the mission home - continuing your service in your hometown. Missions is everywhere!
5. End in prayer
  • Ask specific team member to lead
  • For youth groups who need guidance, give different team members specific topics to cover in prayer
  • You wrap up the prayer in positivity for the next day!
