What is a Sending Team?
A Sending Team is a group of people who stay in touch with a Field Missionary, finding practical ways to encourage while they serve. The terms “Sending Team” and “Missionary Care Team” can be used interchangeably.
Over the next year, we are asking God to raise up Sending Teams to come alongside Field Missionaries. But before that can happen, we need to develop Training Tools that will be used to establish Sending Teams.
Develop Training Tools
We have started a process of developing tools to assist in the training of Sending Teams. We need your help. It’s time to take the next step.
Your participation in a Sending Roundtable will help make sure the training tools, that are being developed, effectively address the common questions people have about helping Missionaries. Essentially, these Sending Roundtables serve as a form of Beta Testing in the development of these training tools.
How does a Sending Roundtable work?
Gather around the table with 6-8 other people who care about Missions.
Participate in a guided conversation about:
- how people in the States view Missionaries
- ways people in the States can help Missionaries
- what could happen if a Sending Team came alongside a Missionary,
How long will the Sending Roundtable last? How much time will it take?
One hour. Stay longer to talk and hang out with friends — but the discussion will last one hour.
If I attend a Sending Roundtable, am I committing to serve on a Sending Team?
No. The Sending Roundtable is a workshop that helps in the development process. If you want to consider serving on a Sending Team, you will need to engage in another kind of training process.
