Are you looking to grow as a member care provider? Do you have a heart to care for your staff? We would love to have you join us for three weeks in our next school!
Numerous topics will be presented, along with many practical tools, in each of the 7 Areas of Care, using various teaching methods. Mini-lectures, case studies, demonstrations, practice sessions, and various applications all contribute to a strong learning environment. Working together, learning from one another, worship and intercession, sharing our hearts, and growing relationships all create a sense of community.
7 Areas of Care
Our course is based on defining member care as: “The formal and informal efforts to develop, preserve, and restore kingdom workers for effective service.” It is built around seven areas that provide support and care for missionaries:
– Savior care
– Staff care (mutual care)
– Shepherd care
– Structure care
– Sender/Supporter care
– Specialist care
