Be a Team Leader with XMA

We need team leaders to lead volunteers on mission trips! We need YOU.

Our statistics show that each XMA Team Leader has a huge impact on the Kingdom. By leading an average of 8 trips per year, we have seen the following results:


Fulfill the Great Commission


Hear about Christ


Accept the Lord


Receive the Bible


Receive Medical/Dental Care

Become a Team Leader!

Team Leader:
• Leads 8+ trips per year
• Locally represents XMA at stateside churches and other events
• Attends XMA staff meetings
• Builds and maintains a support group
• Maintains certifications

Volunteer Team Leader:
• Lead a minimum of 2 trips per year
• Maintain their full time job or are retired
• Financial support raising is not required

Being a volunteer team leader could be the first step towards becoming a team leader. This is a great option for retired individuals or those who want to keep their full time job but feel called to missions.

Team leaders take care of the logistics so that the teams can focus on ministry. This includes airline tickets, lodging, ground transportation, trip pricing, land services and connecting with international partners.

Becoming a team leader is a 6-12 month process in which you keep your current job while you take 1-2 trips with XMA. As you volunteer, you’ll mentor under an existing trip leader learning the requirements of the job, such as security, logistics, ministry planning, reporting, and financial support.
