Who provides supervision while on the field?

The second level of supervision is provided by the IMB field missionary. The advocate reports to the field missionary and ensures that the team is on task while deployed.

How are travel arrangements made?

Fusion Impact participants are required to make international travel arrangements through the Fusion Impact office and National Travel Services (NTS), the IMB’s travel agent. To ensure team cohesiveness, individual travel arrangements are not allowed. This keeps the team traveling together and ensures that individual students do not travel alone. Once a person is accepted to Fusion Impact, an email is generated that walks them through the process for purchasing tickets and visas as well as other information for spiritual preparation.

NOTE: Domestic travel arrangements (to and from orientation/debriefing) will be made by individual students. In a few cases, parents may drive their student to orientation. This is at the discretion of the individual family and needs to be coordinated through the Fusion Impact office to ensure proper timing of tickets.

Does IMB require travel insurance?

Yes. IMB requires all participants traveling abroad to have travel insurance. Insurance is relatively cheap ($2.75 a day) and provides coverage for both treatment and evacuation in the event of personal accident, illness, or other reasons for evacuation.
