Member care is the ongoing investment of resources for the nurture and development of mission/aid personnel.
It focuses on every person who is involved in mission/aid, including children and home office staff. Member care reflects our practical commitment to love truth and peace, and to really love one another.
If there is a topic you would like more information on, or that has not been covered in the website, or if you need help in obtaining some of the resources, please feel free to contact us. We are also available to talk through issues you are facing.
We also recognize that it is not always easy to obtain books or other resources overseas. If you see something you would like but are having difficulty in getting it, please let us know and we will do our best to get the resource to you.
Traveling back and forth between host country and home country, family issues, cultural issues, traumas experienced, amazing miracles experienced — all of these can leave us with a need to be ‘debriefed’.
Grief and Loss
"Christians in ministry are not immune to grief and loss - be it loss of family members, ministry, vision or material things."
For those looking to connect with others in similar situations/ministries, or are looking to improve their knowledge and skill set for their ministry.
Inner Healing/Prayer Ministry
"... to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion..."
When moving to another country culture shock is expected, but when we are returning to our home country we find we experience a kind of ‘reverse culture shock’ when we get home.
Sometimes a retreat to a quiet place is needed, to be refreshed and renewed.
"I look up toward the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, the Creator of heaven and earth!"
Third Culture Kids
Kids growing up overseas have rich experiences, but sometimes battle such things as loneliness, not fitting in when coming back to the ‘home’ country, not being able to define what the ‘home’ country is anyway, identity and self-esteem.
