- If multiple teachers use the material, do I have to purchase multiple downloads? The curriculum is reproducible and may be shared among teachers/leaders within a single church.
- May I burn the videos to DVDs? Yes you may.
- Can I order a years' worth of curriculum at once? Missions education material for the year cannot be ordered at once because of the automatic download feature when you purchase the curriculum with a credit card.
