Students at Pittsburgh Seminary and other members of the Seminary or church community are welcome to apply for a WMI trip.
2018 trip applications will be accepted starting Sept. 15, 2017, and are due Oct. 16, 2017. When space is limited on a trip, applications will be considered in the order they are received, with preference given to PTS students and congregational mission leaders.
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. Applications are now closed for all 2018 mission trips.
- Completed health and signature form submitted to the WMI Office.
- Non-refundable $100 deposit (for trips with total cost less than $1,500) or $200 deposit (for trips with total cost greater than or equal to $1,500), 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 2018 Egypt mission trip should plan to enroll in Term III course EV15, "Planting and Leading New Congregations." Pittsburgh Seminary students planning to participate in the 2018 Israel/Palestine or Colombia mission trips should plan to enroll in a Term III elective course focusing on justice and mission (more details to come). To participate in any other WMI mission opportunity for credit, PTS students must fill out the MI25 Cross-Cultural Mission form and confirm a faculty advisor to oversee your work. You must confirm your advisor and submit it to the Registrar's Office prior to course registration for Term III. You are asked to register for credit/audit for Term III of the 2017-2018 academic year.
