Seed week faq

Training sessions before the short-term mission trip will not only prepare participants for the type of ministry they’ll be engaged in during Seed Weeks, but also create a time for teams to thoughtfully discuss expectations, bond as a team, and pray together

Each outreach day will have a time of training and prayer in the morning, followed by lunch, with evangelism/sifting in the afternoon and into the evening.

Because of the nature of missions work, scheduled activities may shift as different ministry opportunities arise.
See below for a sample daily schedule (subject to change):

SCHEDULE
9:00 am-12:00 pm: Training
12:00 pm-1:00 pm: Lunch
1:00pm-5:45 pm: Seed Sowing/Ministry

Teams should plan to arrive the day before the Seed Week is scheduled to begin and leave the day after the Seed Week ends. Seed Weeks will begin Monday morning and end the following Friday evening. Teams will have one day off for sight-seeing. See below for a sample Seed Week schedule:

SCHEDULE
Day 1: Intro & Prayer Walking
Day 2: Training & Ministry in Neighborhoods
Day 3: Free Day/Sightseeing
Day 4: Training & Ministry in Neighborhoods
Day 5: Debrief & Ministry in Neighborhoods

The primary activity of Seed Week teams will be street evangelism to unbelievers from diaspora communities (individuals that long-term missionaries have yet to interact with). This means that every person on a Seed Week, short-term mission trip team will be expected to initiate spiritual conversations with people in public spaces. By interacting with new, spiritually interested people, Seed Week participants will help long-term workers to find individuals who are open to learning about Jesus and who may also be interested in gathering friends/family to hear the gospel. Participants literally help missionaries “sift” through large Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh populations in the city, looking for spiritually-open people.

While each team will have a long-term missionary acting as a ministry liaison for their group, teams that plan to come will need to designate a team leader who will coordinate the details of their trip. The team leader will be responsible for coordinating transportation to NYC (booking flights, buying bus tickets, etc.), arranging hotel/hostel stays, facilitating pre-trip training modules, and collecting the Seed Week Fee.

Team leaders will be responsible to communicate with their missionary liaison in NYC. The liaison will provide teams with training materials, help to answer logistical questions, and organize a team’s Seed Week schedule and ministry locations.
