The price of the trip is $2000- 2500 (approximate - based on airfare) per person. This includes round-trip airfare, insurance, in-country transportation, lodging, most meals, and orientation materials.
A materials fee of $2000 is required to cover the cost of medicines, supplies, translators and other expenses not covered within team member costs.
Teams should be comprised of no more than 5 members. On-site coordinators will arrange logistics for teams. Housing and food logistics vary based on work location. Some teams may be asked to help with their food preparation. Applicants must be at least 18 years old to participate.
All travel will be arranged by the NCBM/Baptists on Mission (BOM) office. Dates for travel are listed below. Any requested change of dates must be approved by BOM. All volunteers must depart from Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh/Durham, or Atlanta and arrives in Budapest, Hungary. (Travel may be possible from other cities, but may involve an additional cost.)
Living and Working Conditions
Those participating in this effort must be flexible and willing to work as a member of the team. Travel, living, and working conditions may be difficult at times. The work may be strenuous and the climate will be different. Once applications and deposits have been received, team members will be given information, which will answer many questions about the trip. An orientation will be provided for each team prior to departure. The orientation manual can be read here.
Smoking, chewing tobacco, and drinking alcoholic beverages may be highly offensive to other Christians. Team members must refrain from these activities while traveling with Baptists on Mission.
