Missions Mentoring

Why a Missions Mentoring Course?

Missions Mentoring is doing what is necessary to help you get where you want or need to go, specifically for cross-cultural missions.

This course will help you:

  • Pay attention to the gospel story that God is writing in your own life before, during and after a short-term missions trip;
  • Maximize your investment of time, money, and energy for a short-term mission trip so that the outcomes are permanent and deep rather than temporary and superficial;
  • Focus intentionally on preparation, field-orientation, debriefing and long-term follow-up; otherwise, it doesn’t happen.
How the course works:
  • Courses meet once a week for five weeks via conference call;
  • Each participant identifies a mentor who takes the course with them;
  • Participants prepare for each class by reading and completing designated assignments.

Topics:

  • preparing your heart
  • understanding your role in God’s story
  • knowing yourself and your team
  • spiritual gifts
  • responding to cultural conflict
  • expectations and flexibility
  • crossing cultures
  • prayer
  • worldview and spiritual warfare
  • daily living tips
  • host country training
  • making the most of your time of service
  • returning home and integration
