MCTWO 2016:
Soul Food To Go - Care of the Missionary Soul

About the theme:

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.”  3 John 1:2

 Soul       sōl/       noun

  1. the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
  2. a person’s moral or emotional nature or sense of identity.

 Soul Care

 “A holistic endeavor of engaging the disciplines of the mind, heart and body in order to create space for God.” Henri Nouwen

 “Care of souls…means the care of the inner life of persons, the mending and nurturing of the personal center of emotions and behaviors.”  Thomas Oden

 The central theme for MC2 2016, Soul Food to Go – Care of the Missionary Soul, reflects the reality that, soul care, the care of the inner life and spiritual/emotional well-being of our missionaries, is crucial in these days.  We want to help churches and missionary caregivers as they seek to:

  •  understand the many challenges that grieve the missionary soul
  • understand how to fill up the souls of missionary appointees as part of their development and preparation for service
  • minister to the starving souls of their missionaries from afar, while they are overseas and endure the full gamut of mission challenges
  • effectively fatten their souls when they are on home assignment

We truly hope you will join us as we learn together ways to nourish the souls of our precious cross-cultural servants.
