Here at Shepherd's Staff, we tend to speak of the Mission Stream. It speaks of the flow from the initial realization that our God is a Missionary God who leads churches and the individual within churches to respond to His seeking to save that with is lost.
As those churches and individuals continue with their Missioanry God, they figuratively head down the Missionary Stream. The waters gather, flow and deepen. Sometimes there are rapids.
This episode is titled Headwaters and begins a series on the Missionary Stream and deals with the basic theology of our God being on a mission. Future episodes will deal with the response of churches and individuals.

Missionary debriefing is a relational and intentional process that provides an opportunity for a missionary to tell their story—by verbally processing past and recent events from their point of view, complete with their emotional responses at the time and since then.
The Maintenance Debrief is for cross-cultural workers with a call to stay on the field. It is a debrief on the field, or during furlough, designed to keep the missionary focused on the Lord and the calling.
