ICO trip leaders have a great responsibility and privilege in leading ICO trips. Leaders are responsible for communicating with the host ministry site, making travel, lodging, & meal arrangements, disseminating information to trip participants, managing the finances related to trip costs, preparing trip participants both spiritually and mentally for the trip, turning in all necessary paperwork to the Campus Ministries Office, and making decisions while at the ministry site. Because such a position of leadership has many responsibilities, Grove City College requires that all trip leaders go through certain training sessions to prepare leaders spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
