I recently wrote an article about various ways to fund church youth group mission trips (because our Jr. and Sr. High groups are both currently raising funds). As a result Steven Weddle, the Co-Founder & CEO of VolunteerForever.com reached out to me to let me know about his site and how it might be able to help our church. I thought it was a really interesting concept but needed to get more information from him so I asked him the following questions which he agreed to turn into a nice interview for my blog:
1) What inspired you to create this site?
2) Have you funded church youth group mission trips through the site and if yes, how many?
- What’s your motivation for going on this mission trip?
- What will you do there and how will the host community benefit from your presence?
- Why do you need funding and how will the funds be used?
- How do you plan to grow from the experience?
