Missionary Care Resources
We are a team dedicated to promote the well-being, growth, effectiveness and sustainability of Trinity's long-term missionaries. Our team provides a safe place for missionaries to share everything from joys to struggles first-hand through grace-oriented relationships. We encourage and assist them to the extent of our spiritual gifts, our professional and our personal expertise provide by caring for them well-confidentially meeting physical, spiritual, emotional needs thus enhancing the efforts of the sending agencies. We also provide opportunity for Trinity’s congregation to support, pray and help each of our missionaries in practical ways.
If you would like to become involved with this special team, come join us at Missionary Prayer on Sunday mornings to hear more about it.
What does missionary care look like?
We want to develop an open working relationship with each missionary’s agency to learn how they provide missionary care so we can “fill any gaps” that might exist.
Home Groups adoption and care
In an attempt to have the individual missionaries become well known to a larger number of our congregation we have sponsored an “adopt a missionary” campaign through our Home groups.
Coaching for intercultural adjustment
We are in the process of implementing an assessment instrument (the CSAI) developed by Christian psychologists for missionaries that will show them how they are doing in their adjustment to a different culture.
Trinity’s mission budget has provision for “boots on the ground” where we can be present with our missionaries in concrete ways to help when life hits them hard.
We have a list of professionals who would provide volunteer crisis help through email, skype or video conferencing so that help can be accessed during the times of need.
