Video interview of family who attended RE-VIEW.
Praying for MKs during a Crisis
At this 5-day program you will meet others who understand the unique stressors and joys of missionary service and reentry. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your experiences, to consider the impact of events and relationships, to grieve the losses and disappointments, to explore the challenges of transition and to celebrate the successes. This is done in the context of discussions, personal reflection, group and individual debriefing and is led by experienced cross-cultural workers who ‘get it’.
There will be specialized sessions for all age groups that will enable the whole family to process their experiences.
Missionaries transitioning from living cross-culturally have stories of joys and challenges. Debriefing their experience honours God’s call by recognizing and celebrating His fingerprints along the journey. A third party debriefing will provide the extra time, experience and confidentiality that missionary organizations may not be able to offer. As well, sharing and learning with other transitioning missionaries in a small group setting has proven to be very enriching.
Please enjoy this interview of Mike & Diane Fietje as they share their experience about RE-VIEW for their children and themselves.
Fees include room-and-board, instruction and materials.
NOTE: Based on double occupancy. There will be an extra charge for single rooms, if requested. Pricing may change for 2021 programs, although not anticipated.

The idea that older people can’t participate fully in society, let alone the church, is all too prevalent. Especially when it comes to missions. Pastor Norm suggests Intergenerational Ministry as a possible solution & encourages churches to include people across a variety of ages in church ministry, including short-term mission teams.
The Chaplain Ministry for seafarers has had to change & adapt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bill shares some of the challenges, and some of the joys of ministering to the seafarers during this season.
Moving a course with a global footprint and a 20+ year track record from a face-to-face delivery model to an online one would normally be a considered, careful experiment, filled with caution, evaluation and review.
Making the pivot in 2 months, with no safety net, has felt at times like jumping out of an airplane into one of those big, black clouds.
When you are tumbling through the storm there isn’t much time to evaluate. But a few months on, still facing ongoing challenges, here are some silver linings that are beginning to gleam ever more clearly.
Ask adult TCKs about the most challenging transition of their lives, and they'll most likely say, "College" or University.
It's not surprising, really. Where most young people entering higher education have left their home and fmily in another part of the country, TCKs have often left their entire universe behind - the sights, sounds, savors, customs, languages, mentalities, and belief systems of places that have little similarity and relevance in this new world.
This degree of loss, combined with the oddness of re-entering a "home" culture that feels somewhat foreign, can create an emotional-cultural-and-transitional Perfect Storm.
In this article, Michèle outlines ten tips that may help with transition.
What does the church look like when no one is attending? Do we identify the church by the location, facility, staff, programs, and services? If our understanding of the church is tied to these things, then the church may be facing a major crisis right now.
When we take public gatherings and large worship services out of the equation, we still have the people of God, scattered in society where they can be the church.
