Accepting God's call to serve in cross-cultural missions often comes at significant cost. It is not uncommon for missionaries to experience crisis, trauma, conflict, burnout, anxiety, depression, difficult transitions, lack of fulfillment, organizational dysfunction, power struggles, loss of vision, alienation and disillusionment.
In the course of our Biblical discipleship we address the spiritual, emotional and relational needs of missionaries as they prepare to effectively fulfill their part in the Great Commission.
MARRIAGES & FAMILIES IN CRISIS
RE-ENTRY & DEBRIEF
Of the more than 12,000 missionaries who leave the field every year, 70% leave for preventable reasons. It is imperative for prospective missionaries to be equipped with the tools needed to help reduce this attrition rate.
Cross-cultural living and ministry present unique demands which, when adding marriage and family issues into them, can result in a loss of balance between family life and ministry.
When returning to their country, many missionaries find it difficult to close the chapter of their life in the host culture and begin the new chapter in their "home" culture. Debriefing can help you develop a plan for emotional health in the future.
