Team Guidelines

We are aware of the fact that our team is usually compromised of people from many different beliefs and denominational affiliations, as well as a wide variety of personal standards.  We have learned over the years to work together in spite of differences and to focus on common goals and purposes.  In an effort to maintain as much unity as possible and not be offensive to the culture in which we are ministering, guidelines have been established to help define more clear parameters.   It is expected that each team member read and comply with these guidelines.

Click here to read the “Mission Team Information Packet” that covers our guidelines and many other important details that will help you as we serve in Liberia.  It covers a variety of topics including information about the ministry and Liberia, details around travel and transportation, required documents, customs, immunizations, emergency contact data, suggested packing list and other very important details that will be helpful as you plan for your trip.  Please take time to read through it and follow instructions provided.

In addition to the information packet, click here to view an “Introduction Packet” that provides a brief overview of HFM, as well as some details about the country of Liberia.

Work/Ministry

Our work in Liberia is generally customized to the gifts of those that will be on the trip. Some of the things that we may be working on include:

  • Church leadership training
  • Ministry with local churches and Missionaries
  • Mobile medical clinics
  • Feeding program for children
  • Visiting orphanages
  • Construction projects at local churches and/or at the health center
  • Instruction at the MPA school
  • Working with the Christian Foundation Liberia to evaluate projects and needs, establishing policies and procedures

Our ministry plan will be developed based upon the gifts, talents and areas of interest of those going.  Please let us know areas of work/ministry that you are interested in and we will try to match those interests to the needs that exist.
