Torch Board of Directors

The Torch Missions board of directors oversees all Torch Missions trips. Their primary responsibility is to create mission policy and to implement the rules, policies, and guidelines that it sets forth. The board is dedicated to insure that all Torch trips are safe and that each group or team leader follows proper guidelines. These guidelines are in place to protect the integrity of the Torch Missions name and to make sure that all teams wearing the Torch name represent the organization in a sound and scriptural manner.
