Online Project Management

NAB Gateway utilizes an online system for short-term missions that align with MissionExcellence’s Seven Standards of Excellence in Short-Term Mission. Leaders who have taken the Short-Term Missions Leadership Workshop training will be provided this resource. Then a unique project code can be set up for their team, which enables them to track the team’s training, finances, and logistics, all in a secure location.
