Statement of Practice and Faith

I realize that the following elements are crucial to the effectiveness, quality, and safety of our trip together. As a member of the mission’s team, I agree to:
1. Remember that I am a guest working at the invitation of International Dental Ministries and the local host. I am willing to set aside personal preference, habits and schedule in the interest of others to fulfill the mission of IDM and to share the love of Christ with the world.
2. I understand that there are variations in practice and understanding of Scripture in some areas of doctrine, Christian living and witness. In serving with IDM, I will abide by standards as to not offend those we are serving. This includes a willing agreement to abstain from the use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco and being sensitive to cultural standards and practices as given in the cultural guidelines for each country in which we work.
3. Remember that I have come to learn, and serve: You may run across procedures that you feel are inefficient, or attitudes that you find closed-minded. You are to resist the temptation to inform our hosts about “how “I” do things.” You are to be open to learning other peoples’ methods and ideas.
4. Develop and maintain a servant’s attitude toward all nationals and my teammates.
5. Respect the work that is going on in the country with the particular church(es) or person(s) with whom we are working: Realize that our team is here for just a short while, but that the local church is here for the long term.
6. Be flexible and serve in whatever service area is allowed and open to me on the trip. (for example: doing dish, packing cars, holding flash-lights).
7. Abide by any additional guidelines which may be deemed necessary by the leaders during the event.

Financial Responsibility

By signing this application, I am indicating that I have decided to participate in the mission’s trip and I plan to obtain the funds (airfare + $200) necessary to do so. I realize that all moneys received will be submitted to International Dental Ministries and will be held in an account that goes toward the mission trip and all monies are non-refundable.
In the event that trip funds raised exceed trip costs, I understand that such excess funds may be used to cover other trip expenses. Gifts become the sole property International Dental Ministries. A gift to International Dental Ministries is a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes to the extent permitted by law. Tax deductible gifts cannot be refunded. In the event I do not participate in the trip, gifts to International Dental Ministries will go to support other ministry activity costs.

Liability Waiver

I have read the application of International Dental Ministries, Inc. (IDM) and accept its provisions and agree to live work and serve in accordance with them. I, the undersigned, also realize that in accepting a term of volunteer service, it is with a clear understanding that IDM does not assume the responsibility for loss of my property, damage to the same, personal harm, illness, or death that may come to myself or those who travel with me. I, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns, in consideration of my admission to volunteer service and other good and valuable considerations, do hereby release and forever discharge IDM, its directors, officers and employees from liability for any
claim or demand which I or my heirs, executors, administrators or assigns, might otherwise assert upon the basis of any of the forgoing. In volunteering, I recognize that I do not become an agent or employee of IDM in rendering my services and I agree to hold IDM harmless from any claim that might arise out of any acts performed by me while serving as an IDM volunteer.
