A Chord of Three Strands 

Jay Ludwig, City Hill Church & Theresa Hartford, Bethany International

Missionaries can greatly benefit when their mission agency and sending church team up to provide united and coordinated support. But how often does this really happen? Whose responsibility is it to see that it does happen? How should member care be divided up between the two? Who has the final authority in making decisions – the agency or the church? These and several other issues will be addressed in this workshop. Recommended reading: Mind The Gaps: Engaging The Church In Missionary Care, by David J. Wilson.
