Students at Pittsburgh Seminary and other members of the Seminary or church community are welcome to apply for a WMI trip.
2019 trip applications due Oct. 1, 2018.
Pittsburgh Seminary, through WMI and MUI, will attempt to place applicants in a specific trip, based on the applicant's stated preferences, the number of available spaces, and gender and racial/ethnic balance. Priority is given to applicants participating in their first PTS trip. In 2019, congregational mission leaders from area churches can apply for the Philippines, U.S.-Mexican border, South Africa, and a U.S. urban context.
Your application is complete when you submit these three things:
- Completed online application in the MyPTS portal. Students should log-in to apply. Non-students may also apply.
- Completed health and signature form submitted to the WMI Office.
- Non-refundable $200 deposit, which is applied to the balance of your trip cost. You can pay by check or cash in the WMI Office, or use the secure online payment form. Your deposit serves as your commitment to participate in the trip. If you decide not to participate in the trip after paying your deposit, you are financially responsible for ALL costs incurred toward your participation in the trip up to that point (including but not limited to airfare).
Mission Trip for Credit
Any PTS student planning to participate in the 2019 Intercultural Trip are required to enroll in the new Intercultural Learning Experience course and will receive three credits. Non-PTS students can audit the class to participate in the trips.
