The Global Member Care Network (GMCN) recognises that many member care practitioners around the world are working not only with mission partners but also with local people in direct counselling and training/capacity building in local/national churches.
Catastrophes, Crisis counselling , Historic national trauma , Responding to church requests for People Helper training , Supervision/consulting with local caregivers working in churches and local ministries such as orphanages, street children and anti-trafficking
This think-tank brings together people who want to see counselling, psychology and psychiatry as well as psychosocial approaches expanded and developed as a vital part of mission strategy worldwide. It will explore the vision, strategies, goals and motivation. It will look at ways to empower the church in majority world situations to provide local care to meet people’ emotional needs. Besides relationship building, it will determine if the vision is being shared by people in the UK and define what that means in terms of strategies, goals and motivation in the context of the people and agencies present.
In addition to ideas and contributions from participants, the following will make presentations based on their experience of using counselling as mission:
- Harry Hoffmann, coordinator of the World Evangelical Alliance—Mission Commission—Global Member Care Network
- Dr Bradford Smith, Lausanne Senior Associate for Care and Counsel as Mission, Director of Care and Counsel International and a psychologist based in Boston, Massachusetts, USA
- Dr John Warlow, Australian psychiatrist, on the Lausanne Care and Counsel as Mission Global Leadership Team and Lausanne Care and Counsel as Mission representative for Asia/Pacific
- Roger Day, psychotherapist, trainer and strategic partner in the Midlands
