U.S. Missions Fall 2021 Candidate Orientation

  • Saturday, Sep 18, 2021 - Thursday, Sep 23, 2021
Greetings and welcome to online registration!

Here are a few important pieces of information before you begin:

  • During Candidate Orientation, we ask that you please do not ask your trainers or the speakers for support.

  • Full attendance of the event is required of all attendees.  Plan to arrive no later than Friday, September 17, and to leave no earlier than Friday, the 24th, so that you may attend all parts of orientation.

We will be using a service called Slack to aggregate our communications and candidate pre-work this year.  You can access Slack via their app available on mobile and PC, or via a web browser.  (Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge will likely work best.)

On the left side, you can see chat channels for various conversations.  There is a channel where announcements will be posted; one where pre-work assignments will be given; and a channel for general discussion, coordination, and questions to be asked.  Slack also allows for messaging and sending files between members, among other things.

If you are not already on Slack, we will send you an invitation to join through your email.  If you have any questions, send a message in Teams or an email to Joy Sorbo at

We ask that children do not attend the orientation as we are not equipped for child care.  This also allows you and the other missionaries to focus on the training; however, we do make exceptions for infants.  If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact Joseph Burnash at as soon as possible.

The phone number for the DoubleTree airport shuttle is 417-831-3131.

Until Aug 18, 2021

Selections are not reserved until order is complete.
