Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I travel from another country and join with a Global Awakening Team?

A. Anyone can travel to and participate in the meetings in any part of the world. If you would like to be on the Global Awakening Ministry team, we ask that you would fill out an application. You would make and pay for your own flight reservations to the host city and then we would give you a discount on the trip. The discount varies for each trip. If you haven't already, you would need to complete the ministry team requirements which means you would have to order the Ministry Team Training Materials (see the bookstore on our website). We can ship these to you, but you would need to order them with a major credit card. In order to apply, you can  download the forms or the forms can be emailed to you.


Q. Can I travel on my own and not use Global Awakening’s Travel Agent?

A. It is our policy to allow a team member to make their own travel arrangements (not use our travel agent) only for one of the following cases:

  1. You are traveling to the host country from outside of the US or from Canada;
  2. You have an Airline "Buddy Pass" with another team member and the airline will only allow you to use it if you make the reservation with them directly;
  3. You are using Frequent Flyer Miles
  4. You are authorized to use an Airline Employee Discount

If you qualify for one of the above, you must also understand that you will be responsible to get all the way to the host city (sometimes you may have to pay a connection fee in the host country) and be at the airport or hotel in the city where we are ministering at the time the rest of the team is arriving. If you are not at the airport during the time the other team members arrive, you will be responsible to connect up with the rest of the team and pay all costs associated with making this connection. If there are any internal flights, you will also be responsible to make these arrangements.  Please contact the office for the "Travel On Your Own" discount for your trip.


Q. Can I upgrade my ticket to business or first class?

A.  Yes, you will however need to pay the difference in price of what the standard flight would cost.  When you book your ticket through Travel Leaders let them know you would like to fly business or first class.  They will tell you what the price difference will be.  You will then pay the difference in cost to Global Awakening. 

Q. Can I have a single room on the trip?

A. Usually no, but exceptions can be made. Roommates are an important part of the trip and we don’t want you to miss out on that fellowship. We will consider making an exception depending on room availability. You should email us and explain the reason you would like the single room. Of course, if it is approved, there will be an additional cost that will be incurred and you will pay this on the trip.


Q. Can I leave for the trip early or stay later than the rest of the team?

A. Yes. Just let the travel agent know when you would like to arrive and leave. You will be responsible for your own transportation to or from the hotel and your accomodations during this time. We cannot guarantee you will receive the same room rate as Global Awakening.


Q: Can we sign up as a group for the trip? 

A. Yes, Global Awakening welcomes groups on its international trips, whether they are organized by a church, some other ministry, or it is simply a group of friends. Give your group a name and put this group name on each application or correspondence you submit to our office. We ask that all payments to our office be done individually. If the church or ministry is making a payment toward one or more individuals, be sure that it is clear exactly how much each person’s account should be credited. (The one exception to this is the Mozambique trip. Due to the limited number of spaces available on the Mozambique trip, we cannot accommodate groups.)
