This packet contains the individual member forms needed to send a team from the California-Nevada Annual Conference. Not all forms are required for each mission type; see the list below for each type’s requirements. For Insurance information, please scroll down to UMVIM insurance. For Mission trips hosted by another UMC Conference or non-profit, it is possible that they may have their own registration packet. It is okay to use those information packets instead of the following, provided they meet the provisions of our forms. When in doubt, contact the Cal-Nev Conference UMVIM Coordinator.
Optional Forms – to be used at Team Leader’s discretion and depending on mission site
*For out of state and/or out of country trips, the Parental Consent form must be signed and notarized by both parents or legal guardians for each minor on the team, even if one or both parents (guardians) are part of the team. If one parent is deceased, attach a copy of the death certificate; if one parent has sole legal custody due to divorce, attach a copy of the divorce decree. For in state trips, a signature by one parent or guardian is sufficient. State and country are defined by the youth’s primary residence.
+ In-Conference mission participants without medical insurance should purchase accident insurance as for National missions. See below under #6 Insurance.
