Missionary Care Teams

Sending in a manner worthy of God

What is a Missionary Care Team?

In the book of Third John, God tells us,

“You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. For they have gone out for the sake of the Name… Therefore, we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.”

Missionary Care Teams are the front lines of our prayer and logistical support for our cross-cultural workers.

Team members commit to:

  • Focused prayer – praying specifically for and with the missionaries
  • Reciprocal communication – listening, sharing, reaching out, and responding
  • Home assignment support – knowing when your workers will be home and taking a role in the logistical preparation
  • Advocacy – promoting, celebrating, and networking
