Ministry Leave & Extended Ministry Leave
What's the difference between Extended Ministry and Mission Trip Days?  Extended Ministry, for the most part, is not related to your students but rather work in Baptist life. Extended Ministry days are not intended for use on campus mission trips. They can, however, be used for the leading of Impact Mission Teams with the approval of the state staff. Examples of Extended Ministry would include: going on a mission trip with your church, going on a vision trip with Go Now Missions, leading a camp for a week (not your students). Remember, Extended Ministry days must be approved by your Supervisor 90 days before the event. For more information, see sections 882 & 883 of the BGCT Policy Manual (updated 09/24/2019).
