Jeff refers to his missionary re-entry experience as the catalyst for how and why Shepherd’s Staff Mission Facilitators operates the way it does. We also talk about easy and practical ways to include returning missionaries into the fold and include the local church in the re-entry process. When thought through, everyone grows and the local church’s vision for missions expands.
Finally, Jeff talks about how to train people in the congregation to own specific ministry to those returning from the field. These are some of the resources referred to in this show:
