Maintenance Debrief

January 30, 2018

This edition of Facilitating the Mission carries the conversation about the On Field Care Visit discussed in our previous podcast into greater detail and purpose. In this episode, Jeff unpacks the purpose of the Maintenance Debrief. We learn that it has a two-fold purpose: confirmation and calibration.

On-field Care Visits

On-field Care Visits

January 17, 2018

Do the missionaries your church has sent to the field know that they're as much of a priority as anyone else in your church? They need to know they are. God pays attention to the care missionaries get from the leaders of their home churches. That's why the on-field care visit from a pastor or elder (or both) are so important. We need to be intentional about budgeting and planning for this.

But before we get into the main content of this podcast, Jeff explains why and where he curates the missionary content he publishes on Facebook and Twitter.

Here are some of the blogs and websites he mentions in the first segment of this episode:

» A Life Overseas
» Parakletos.org
» Velvet Ashes
» Small Town Laowai
» Rocky Re-entry

During the segment about on field visits, Jeff mentions his pastor who came and visited him and his family while they church planted in the Philippines. Pat Kenney now serves with Poimen Ministries and continues serves as a pastor to pastors. Learn more about Poimen Ministries here: http://www.poimenministries.com/
