Training And Equipping Of Senders

Churches send missionaries out either on their own or in co-operation with other churches and/or organisations. But how does a church ensure that their missionaries are well prepared and well cared for spiritually, emotionally, physically, materially and occupationally?

Member Care Southern Africa presents workshops to equip churches on how to care for their missionaries more effectively during the different phases of their missionary life.

The following topics are addressed in the workshop:

  • Definition, Biblical basis, and the importance of Member Care
  • Partners in the sending and caring of a missionary
  • The phases in a missionary’s life
  • Phases in the preparation, sending and caring of a missionary
  • The assessment of missionaries
  • The Support Team
  • On-field care
  • Re-entry
  • Attrition

We also assist churches with the process of establishing support structures for their missionaries in the church.
