The Global Member Care Network (GMCN) exists to resource, equip and connect internationally all Christian practitioners of member care at any level.
It is a professional community in which mutual learning, training and sharing can take place.
We,* the GMCN, would like to see…
… a healthy, spiritual, relational, resourced, vigorous, global mission community serving God effectively, connected vitally to both the sending and receiving church, reflecting Christ accurately in life and task.
Member Care is the ongoing preparation, equipping and empowering of Missionaries for effective and sustainable life, ministry and work.

A New Member Care Model
The Pyramid of Care
The call for a new Member Care model has been out there for many years! I have worked with the Pyramid of Care, based on the Christian Wholeness Framework by Dr. John Warlow (Australia) since 2005. Find recent online Foundations of Member Care trainings based on the Pyramid of Care here:

Just a note to say that reading this latest Network newsletter is such a cause for thanksgiving! Remembering back to the first time we met, when member care was very much in its infancy, and so little training was available. This newsletter offers many training opportunities, open to everyone everywhere. Thank you for making a lot of it happen and for publicising what you and other groups are providing.
“Your Member Care seminars have certainly taken the world by storm!”
“We have been going through this process of being equipped and putting in practice the knowledge we acquired through your courses. Thank you!”
