At the end of your training, you and your team will take part in a special candle-light Commissioning Service on the last evening of camp.

At the conclusion of your international prject, you and your team will spend two days in Debriefing. After leaving the strong spiritual environment of the project, it is i mportant to go home prepared to continue your upward spiritual journey. Debriefintg is a time of praise, sharing, fellowship, and fun.

Participation in each project requires a signed commitment by each team member and leader that he or she will be present for the entire duration of the project. AM can make no exceptions to this policy.
