Find Out Where You Can Experience the Call

Overview

In compliance with Internal Revenue Service regulations and General Council guidelines and for the protection of our AGWM missionaries, we require all team members and volunteers to purchase AGWM-provided insurance and complete the online registration prior to departure.

Qualifications
  • Serving one month or less.
  • Be invited by an AGWM missionary.
  • Be a believer in good standing with your local church.
  • Be in agreement with AGWM policies regarding overseas trips.

If you do not have an invitation, you can check out our Opportunities page or contact Pipeline for help getting connected with a missionary.

Individuals, Couples, or Families

Individuals, couples, or families often take vacation time to serve on short-term assignments. Those who are serving one month or less are considered “individual team members” and should register through the Teams office. Contact mapsteams@ag.org to register.

Teams

Teams are groups from churches, colleges, or other institutions traveling together to serve a short-term assignment. Register below.

Minors

If you have a team comprised of students and leaders, where students (minors) do a majority of the ministry with the help and supervision of leaders, STOP, and register through the AIM department. For all other teams, please proceed to registration.

Registration

The online registration system allows team coordinators to pay construction funds and insurance with their credit card. The deadline for registration completion is one month prior to departure. If your team is paying a per diem, you will pay separately through the Contributor Services department: 417-862-2781, Ext. 8840. Please make sure your per diem is sent at least six weeks prior to your trip departure.

Assemblies of God world missionaries are not to accept teams or individuals, who do not complete registration through AGWM.

Step 1

Submit a Team Leader/Coordinator packet (for help downloading, click here) to mapsteams@ag.org.

Designate a team coordinator—the person responsible for the team's paperwork and completing the registration process with AGWM.

  • Designate a team leader—the person leading the team on the field (may or may not be the same person as the team coordinator).
  • After the Team Leader/Coordinator Packet is submitted, AGWM conducts a background check for the team leader and requests a login account for the team coordinator for access to the online team application site.
Step 2
  • Set up your password. You will receive an email with your user name and a link from AG Passport to set your password.
  • Once your password is set up, exit the AG Passport site and follow Step 3.

Please save your login information in a secure location; you will use this account to register future teams as well.

Step 3
  • Sign in to the online team application site. We recommend that you add the site to your favorites/bookmarks for easy access and use Internet Explorer for best results.

  • Purchase the required ACE/Chubb insurance ($4.50 per day, per person, including dates of travel). This insurance is meant to supplement, not replace, the team members’ insurance.
