At iGo, safety is the highest priority and we take extensive measures to ensure the success of the students on our teams.

The cost for this trip is typically $4500 (all inclusive). It covers meals, lodging, airfare, training, in country transportation, travel insurance, etc… everything but souvenirs. We provide all team members with a fundraising booklet upon acceptance and other helpful resources.
Nate Woodall is the Trip Coordinator (staff member in charge of logistics) for this team. He will be your main contact leading up to the trip. This team will also have a Team Leader who will travel and serve with the team. All Team Leaders have a proven track record of responsibility, travel competency, and faithfulness to their church. All iGo teams serve under the direct supervision of local church planters and other field staff.
Leader Retreat is for everyone leading an iGo team or serving as a JSI in the upcoming summer. All team leaders and JSIs are required to attend this weekend as part of their commitment to serve through iGo. We spend time worshiping together and hearing from Scripture as a way to spiritually prepare for what lies ahead. It’s a great time for leaders and JSIs to connect with our staff and each other, spend time with each other in community, and prepare for their roles as leaders and servants.
The first three days of your trip will be a stateside training program called Base Camp. The two primary focuses of Base Camp are:
- Spiritual Preparation: Teachings that will give you a biblical framework for missional living.
- Cross Cultural Training: Simulations and activities that will enable you to cross cultures effectively.
