How will I spend my days in Jamaica?

On Saturday, you will arrive in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and drive from there to your ministry location. You will return to the USA on the following Sunday - a nine-day trip.

The Sunday after arriving, you will attend a local church and then spend the rest of the day organizing yourself and your teammates for the week ahead.

Monday through Friday: After breakfast and devotions, you will be deployed to your medical, evangelism, teaching, or construction activity. At the end of a very full day, you will return to TEAMS House for dinner and preparations for the next day's work. Special ministry opportunities are provided in the evenings as well.

Saturday will include a debriefing session and a time of testimony where we are encouraged with a review of what God has done during the ministry week. The remainder of the day will be free time to rest or pursue whatever other activities are available. Sunday morning the team travels back to Montego Bay airport for the return flight home.

Will I get any orientation or training?

Pre-trip training will consist of informational emails and J-Team handbooks. In Jamaica, there will be a time of orientation and training specifically for your area of service.

What is covered in the $1,250 trip fee?

  • A deposit. This is a $100 per person place-holder and admin fee that also helps cover up-front administrative costs.
  • The remaining $1,150 trip fee covers food and lodging, ground transportation, trip medical insurance, administrative costs, and your first TEAMS shirt. It doesn’t cover food at the airport, souvenirs, or special activities you may decide to do in your free time on Saturday.
  • +Airfare. The J-Teamer is responsible for purchasing their airfare.

When are the trip fees due?

  • The initial $100 administrative/placeholder fee should be sent as soon as accepted for a J-Team and is non-refundable upon your placement on a J-Team.
  • The balance is due about four weeks before departure. Note again that once receipted, none of these funds are refundable.

Do you have brochures?

You can print a J-Team Brochure for offline viewing or sharing. That brochure contains specific information about the quarterly short-term mission experience. We also have available a T4MM Brochure to print and share which covers more general information concerning the ministry as a whole.
