Missionaries and Church Leaders

We get it

Being a missionary or church leader, we understand that you are in a unique position. Others look to you for moral and spiritual guidance. There’s the sense that you cannot be completely transparent with others, because it may undermine your ability to lead or teach.

You want someone to bounce things off, to share your struggles with, to help you think critically about the situation you find yourself in, but to do that you’d need to be open and honest about what you’re really thinking, and you’re not sure who you can trust. Someone who wouldn’t judge or think less of you for simply being human and having the same doubts, frustrations, adversity and challenges that everyone else does.

Safe & Non-Judgmental

Our counselors and coaches understand your position, because many of us have been missionaries and/or church leaders ourselves. We know it takes a long time to build a ministry, whether in your home culture or overseas.  A lot goes into it – not just for you but also for your whole family. It’s a joy to watch lives changed as the Lord works through you, but on the flip side of that joy lies a heavy weight of relational and spiritual responsibility and accountability. And while that may be a good thing in many ways, it can also prevent you from getting the help you need for fear of being somehow discredited from service.

Biblically-based, Research Informed

You don’t have to worry about us guilting, shaming or condemning you for what you have done or had done to you. That’s not helpful to you or anyone.  Instead, we’ll help you find a way forward that makes sense within the context of  your faith, your values and the specifics of your situation. We’ll draw on both Scripture and psychological research to help you through that process.

Missions related issues

Preparing to move a new field of service overseas?  Moved to your host country and having trouble adjusting or are experiencing culture shock?  Recently moved back and are experiencing reverse-culture shock symptoms? Difficulties with the pressures of ‘partner development’? Don’t feel comfortable speaking with your own member-care department, or your agency doesn’t have one? Family issues accentuated by cross cultural ministry stress or team dysfunction?

We’re familiar with these and many other stressors that missionaries face, from making the decision to following your call, to the challenges of life overseas, to returning back ‘home’ again.
