The Standards Introductory Workshop (SIW) is an 8-10 hour seminar designed to help those involved with mission trips apply the Seven Standards to their specific ministry context. The workshops are taught by experienced SOE trainers and are interactive using case studies and small group discussions to enhance learning. The MISTM-grid theory guides a comprehensive approach to examining the Standards so participants can address pre-, on-, and post-field phases of their mission trips. The SIW is offered as a pre-conference to help reduce time and travel requirements while maximizing involvement in the mission’s conference. 

Certification Program students will receive a $25 discount. The discount code is “NAAMC”. 

NAAMC attendees who register in groups of 3 or more will also receive a $25 discount.
