Participant Financial Commitment for Short-Term Mission Trips Sponsored by Highlands Presbyterian Church (approved by the session January 2012)

All participants are required to pay a non-refundable and non-transferable deposit. The deposit amount shall be set by short-term missions committee and shall not exceed the per-person amount designated by the partnering mission organization. (Example: $100/person deposit to Sacred Road Ministries per their guidelines).

By paying a deposit for the trip you are assuming financial responsibility for the trip and are authorizing Highlands Presbyterian Church to purchase airfare on your behalf. Accordingly if you do not go on the trip and the airline ticket cannot be transferred to another person you will be responsible to pay the cost of the ticket to HPC.

Furthermore, if for any reason the trip is cancelled, any expenses incurred will first be deducted against contributions raised. No contributions given to the church will be returned, but will be kept in an account for use on a future approved trip. All funds raised after the deposit will be tax deductible gifts to Highlands Presbyterian Church on your behalf – therefore they are not refundable.

If the trip is canceled, all funds raised will be kept as short-term missions tax-deductible contributions and a record of the funds you raised will be kept for a mission trip.
