Mind The Gaps: Engaging the Church in Missionary Care

This workshop will explore how to unlock the potential in the relationship between the agency, the church and the missionaries who serve.  The church does not always know that they are welcome to participate in this relationship beyond prayer and sending money. Often, the agency doesn’t fully realize the untapped possibilities of a church that is properly engaged in missionary care and mobilization. And missionaries are eager to discover the blessing of a dynamic and fully engaged support network that seeks to care for them spiritually, physically and emotionally. How can we mind the gaps of care together?
