Missionary Care Conference Coming to the Pacific Northwest -- www.careconnexion.org
“Unmet pastoral care to missionaries is one of the most critical issues regarding longevity and effectiveness of missions.” - A worker from North Africa
Providing financial and logistical support to these faithful servants is important, but even more needed in these difficult times is an intentional and strategic ministry of encouragement, pastoral and emotional care. Effective support in these areas can help make sure workers leave the mission field fulfilled instead of burned and empty.
These gaps in care often lead to a high attrition rate among mid- and long-term missionaries. Seeking to help churches, agencies and others working closely with missionaries, a local group of leaders will host Care Connexion 2010 on April 16-17, 2010 at Cedar Mill Bible Church in Portland, OR.
Care Connexion will focus on equipping and networking leaders to provide relevant and effective care for missionaries. Those attending will meet partners in the ministry of Missionary Care from churches, missions organizations, schools and Christian counseling Centers. Speakers from around the country will share strategies, resources and encouragement in efforts to meet the needs of overseas workers.
