In our weekly email update, Leader Tips are included to provide answers to often asked questions from our team leaders. We've compiled them into a document for you in the Member's Area under Leader Resources, and will continue adding tips to this document as they are published. Thanks to Bill Tarbell for these helpful Leader Tips!
Please pray for safe travels for the many NOMADS who are working their way to their period 3 commitments this weekend.
Soon, our partnering agencies will begin applying for 2014 NOMADS projects. We schedule them about 12 months out, but not much further. As agencies apply, we will begin posting these 2014 projects for NOMADS to sign up.
The period 2 project has been cancelled, and a period 4 project has been added for Cross Roads UMC in Phoenix. This new NOMADS partner is involved in a large "build" and the schedule has been somewhat delayed, so period 4 may work out better than period 2 for them.
We have openings on a few teams for period 2, so NOMADS will you please consider your last minute availability and sign up to serve if you can? We have openings in Phoenix at Cross Roads UMC and at Epworth UMC, in Tucson at Hope UMC and for First UMC in Mercedes, Texas. Contact the NOMADS office if you need assistance with signups.
Due to several cancellations, we now need team members during period 1 in Phoenix, AZ and in St. Petersburg, FL. For period 2, we have openings in Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona, in Eustis, Florida and in Mercedes, Texas.
Cancellations do occur, as family or health issues, problems with rigs and other things can complicate our lives and project participation as NOMADS. Please continue to check the project software and list of teams to see if you can fill in any of our ever-changing project openings. Or call the NOMADS office if you need assistance.
NOMADS, login and check out the 2013 projects list, as we've added about a dozen this week.
A special friend of NOMADS, Lee Padgett, the director of Aldersgate Retreat Center in Ravenna, Kentucky, has sent us a lovely note. Login to the NOMADS Member's Area and page down to Recent News for Members, to read the letter from Lee.
If you are leading in periods 1, 2, 3 or 4 in 2013, and have not received your team leader packet via email, please contact the office for assistance.
