GLOBAL MISSIONARY CARE

Our missionary care team is essential to our proclamation of the gospel around the world, providing vital spiritual and psychological care that ensures that our missionaries flourish in their calling. One way they do this is by initial screening, preparation, and training events for new missionaries. They also host regular retreats to provide for spiritual refreshment, and conferences such as Living in Grace. Additionally, they supply ongoing pastoral care, serving alongside volunteer pastoral associate couples in ministry to missionaries. And because missionaries struggle with the same life problems we all have, with the added stress of being in a strange culture and often in difficult living situations, professional counselors on the team help when there’s a crisis. The goal of our team is to continue investing in the well-being of those God has called to bring the good news.
