Missionaries in Training
Are you a missionary or moving in that direction?
For Prospective Missionaries
You will also meet some contemporary heroes of the faith as they mingle with us and share their stories of God's guidance and provision.
Involvement in this program is an important step in gaining the church's backing as you move forward. It allows us to get to know you and thus be able to represent your eligibility for financial support before the Missions Board.
For Current Missionaries
Sharing your experiences in an up-close-and-personal setting is bound to have a profound and lasting impact upon those considering missions as a career.
Mentoring and interaction with career missionaries also affords the Missionary in Training a realistic look at both your mission organization and field of ministry.
Presentations are made by missionaries, mission executives and church leaders. Unlike traditional missionary reports, these presentations are based on assigned topics of specific interest and/or current needs of the MIT participants.
Some recent examples: Pastoral Care of Missionaries; Avoiding and Resolving Personal Conflict; Adjusting to a New Culture; Singleness and Marriage on the Field; Ministry and Family Life in a Creative Access Nation; Current Trends in Missions; Raising Missionary Support.
