Facing & Overcoming Missionary Challenges 

Cross-cultural workers deal daily with painful experiences such as culture shock, language learning, medical issues, marital adjustments, transition issues, and children’s education to name a few.  Missionaries can find themselves trying to deal with these stressors with little help from the local church. What is the role of the local church in identifying these pressures and finding ways to encourage those they are sending?  During this interactive workshop we will be naming key ministry pressures that impact the lives of global workers.  We’ll suggest practical ways that local church caregivers can come alongside to provide quality care.
