Re-Entry - Making the transition from missions to life at home? YWAM Publishing
Missionary Care Foundation Course, (MCFC)
Dates: 5 September to 25 September 2010
Place: YWAM Lilongwe, Malawi
Description: In the course we explore the support systems that God intends for our missionaries and teams so that they remain healthy and resilient. We also help develop specific skills that leaders or member care workers can use to more effectively care for their staff. For example, they will be learning to do regular debriefing, exit interviews, debriefing of couples, coaching others in handling conflict, assessing stress, and coaching others in handling cross cultural stress. As a final outcome, we help attendees develop a specific plan for caring for the staff in their sphere of responsibility. This course is ideal for leaders of any level who want to strengthen the care of their missionaries, for those who are a part of a member care team, or for those who want to form a member care team for their location.
