Terms & Conditions
By clicking “I agree to the Twelve21 Global terms and conditions,” I state that I would like to participate in a Twelve21 Global mission trip, and I agree to all of the following:
I understand I will need to pay for or raise all funds necessary for participation in the mission trip. All funds obtained for this trip qualify as charitable donations. They become the property of Twelve21 Global (a non-profit organization) for federal income tax purposes to the extent permitted by law. All tax-deductible contributions are non-refundable.
I understand a fundraising account will be created upon approval of my application and receipt of my $100 non-refundable deposit. All funds raised via check or online donation will be deposited into a Twelve21 Global mission trip account in my name. Twelve21 Global reserves the right to increase the price of a trip at any time upon notice to team members.
Checks made out to Twelve21 Global must be sent to the following, including a donation card which notes my personal fundraiser account number:
1600 W. Campbell Rd.
Garland, TX 75044
If I participate in the mission trip, the price established by Twelve21 Global—and any additional expenses incurred on my behalf—for this mission trip will be deducted from my Twelve21 Global mission trip account. I understand that Twelve21 Global reserves the right to make cancelations, substitutions, or changes to the mission trip in its sole discretion at any time. Twelve21 Global shall not be liable for any loss to any trip member by reason of any such cancellation or change. Twelve21 Global is not responsible for penalties assessed by air carriers including but not limited to operational error, weather, or itinerary change. Any additional expense resulting from the above will be paid by the participant. Twelve21 Global reserves the right to substitute hotel or housing accommodations at any time.
In case I don’t raise the required funds necessary and I still wish to participate, the remaining balance of the trip will be deducted from my credit card on file. The approximate due dates of funds are as follows:
- A registration fee of $100 is due upon registration.
- 50% of Twelve21 trip price will be due around 90 days prior to the trip departure date.
- All remaining funds will be due at least 30 days prior to the trip departure date.
Excess of Funds
If I raise trip funds that exceed the trip price by $200 or more, I understand that I may request such funds be applied toward a future Twelve21 Global trip in my name. I must accomplish this before the end of the next calendar year. Twelve21 Global cannot refund this deposit. These funds will be held in a Twelve21 Global pending account until I register for a new trip. Any funds not used for another trip by the end of the following calendar year will be used to further the mission of Twelve21 Global.
If additional raised trip funds exceed the trip price by less than $200, such funds may be used by Twelve21 Global to cover other Twelve21 Global costs.
If I choose not to participate in the Twelve21 Global trip for which I signed up, or the trip is cancelled due to reasons outside the control of Twelve21 Global, any expenses incurred on my behalf will be deducted from my Twelve21 Global mission account. I will be responsible for any deficit in my account and will pay any deficit within fifteen days following notice of that amount. Expenses outside of Twelve21 Global’s control could include (but are not limited to) airline cancellation fees, travel deposits, etc.
I have received, reviewed and agree to follow all policies set in place by Twelve21 Global, including trip policies, the Statement of Faith, and all other documents referred to in this document or any other document provided by Twelve21 Global. I will work wholeheartedly to maintain and strengthen Twelve21 Global and its members and will reflect the values of the organization in word and deed.
I grant Twelve21 Global employees and representatives the right to take photographs and video of me and my property in connection with the mission trip. I authorize Twelve21 Global and its representatives the right to copyright and use the published media electronically or in print. I agree that Twelve21 Global may use such photographs of me with or without my name for purposes such as publicity, illustration, advertising, and web content.
I recognize the religious nature of Twelve21 Global and understand that Twelve21 Global has the right to enforce appropriate standards of behavior. Twelve21 Global reserves the right to end my volunteer status by dismissal at any time should my actions or general behavior:
- Impede the mission of Twelve21 Global
- Contradict the stated beliefs of the ministry
- Disregard policies
- Interfere with the rights and welfare of any person, including but not limited to my own welfare.
I understand that Twelve21 Global does not represent or act as an agent for, and therefore cannot control the acts of omission of, any host institution, transportation carrier, hotel, tour organizer, or other provider of goods or services involved in the mission trip. I understand that Twelve21 is not responsible for matters that are beyond its control. I hereby release and absolve Twelve21 Global from any injuries, illnesses (including death), claims, damages, charges, bills and/or expenses I may incur, including periods before, during, and after the duration of the mission trip.
I understand it is my responsibility to carry adequate coverage by health and accident insurance which cover periods before, during, and after the duration of the mission trip. In my trip requirements forms I will include any information Twelve21 Global needs regarding my insurance coverage for accident, injury, illness, hospitalization, accidental death, and emergency medical evacuation. As soon as I become aware of any physical or mental condition which may require special medical attention or accommodation while traveling, I agree to report this to Twelve21 Global staff. I take full responsibility for my own personal medical costs while I participate in the mission trip. I understand Twelve21 Global is not obligated to attend to any of my medical or medication needs, and I assume all risk and responsibility thereof. If I require medical treatment or hospital care before, after, or during my mission trip, Twelve21 Global is not responsible for the cost or quality of such treatment or care.
I understand that travel, particularly for the purpose of missions, may involve significant risks. I also understand that travel to some areas of the world involves greater health and safety risks than other foreign travel.
Statement of Faith
I understand Twelve21 Global is a Christian ministry organization, and I agree with the ministry’s stated beliefs as listed in the statement of faith. I agree to conduct myself in a manner that glorifies the Lord in both word and deed before, during, and after the mission trip.
What We Believe
We believe God’s people must bond by mutual love for Christ and full submission to his Lordship. Full uniformity and agreement on all doctrinal issues is an unrealistic expectation, however. We allow for and value diversity. We strive to honor the Apostle Paul’s instruction to avoid foolish arguments that produce quarrels (2 Timothy 2:23).
We do believe that faith itself must be grounded on essential biblical doctrines. These doctrines are evident in the Apostles Creed and other historical confessions of Christianity. We believe the following to be essential and stand firm on them as our beliefs.
We believe the Bible to be the fully inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. (Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (1 Thessalonians 1:3-6; 1 Peter 1:1-3; John 14:7-11; Hebrews 1:1-3; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-5; 14-17)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 8:58; John 10:30)
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35)
His sinless life (1 Peter 2:22; Matthew 4:1-11)
His miracles (Matthew 14:25-33; John 20:30-31)
His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (Hebrews 2:17; Romans 5:8; 1 John 2:2)
His bodily resurrection (Acts 2:22-24; Luke 24:5, 6, 36-43; John 20:27-29)
His ascension to the right hand of Father (Luke 24:50-51)
His personal return in power in glory (Revelation 19:11-16)
We believe that salvation is totally dependent on God and his grace. We believe that the new birth of the believer comes through faith in Christ alone. Repentance is a vital part of saving faith in Jesus Christ and not a separate work. We do not believe that any action—such as baptism, prayer, a reformed lifestyle, or faithful service—can be added to repentant faith as a condition for eternal salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Acts 20:21; Hebrews 6:1; 2 Peter 3:9)
We believe it is the privilege of all who are born again by the Spirit through faith in Christ to be assured of their salvation from the very day they take him to be their Savior. All true believers everywhere, once saved, shall be kept saved forever. (Luke 10:20; 2Corinthians 5:1, 6–8; 2 Timothy 1:12; 1 John 5:13; John 5:24, John 5:24; Ephesians 1:3-14; John 10:29)
LAW & GRACE:
We believe Christians are free from law and that the Christian life is to be lived by God’s grace through the Holy Spirit’s power. We believe, however, that God is a holy and righteous Father and cannot overlook the sin of his children. When they persistently sin, he will chasten them and correct them in his infinite love. (Romans 6:14; John 1:17; John 14:16-17; 2 Corinthians 3:8; Galatians 5:24-25, Proverbs 3:11-12; Isaiah 6:1-5; Romans 3:25-26; Hebrews 12:9-11; 1 John 2:1-2; Revelation 3:19)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit—who indwells and enables every Christian to live a godly life and minister to others in divine power. (John 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 12:4-7; Galatians 5:22-25)
We believe in the bodily resurrection and judgment of all men. Believers will be resurrected to enjoy eternal life with God, and unbelievers will be resurrected to suffer eternal judgment and separation from God. (Luke 16:19-26; Luke 23:39-43; Philippians 1:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; Jude 6-7; Revelation 20:11-15)
We believe all born again believers are members of Christ’s universal church. (Matthew 16:16-18; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 1:19b-23; 2:19-21, 4:3-6; Colossians 3:14-15)
We believe that the local expressions of the church, as the body of Christ, are essential in the plan and purpose of God. (Acts 14:23; Ephesians 2:15b-16; Ephesians 4:15-16; Colossians 1:6; 1 Timothy 3:14-15; 1 Peter 2:5)
We believe the primary responsibility of all who are saved is to work toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission. All worldly and personal ambitions should be lower in priority than the supreme command of making disciples. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 17:18, 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20)
We believe that human betterment and social justice are essential products of the gospel. (Isaiah 1:17; Micah 6:8; Galatians 6:10; Hebrews 13:3; James 1:27; 1 John 3:17-18)
