Opportunity is given to process the missionary journey with experienced cross-cultural workers who care and to gain perspective on the next phase of life. RE-VIEW has been developed to provide insight on topics such as transition, grief, loss, stress and burnout, among others. There is also group and individual debriefing.
Missionaries transitioning from living cross-culturally have stories of joys and challenges. Debriefing their experience honors 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
