Actually, what I am doing is writing a couple of papers on what a ‘good sending church does well’. I am also trying to write-up criteria, check lists and agreements.
I’d be really interested if you are from a church that sends missionaries to hear what they did/what they do well. Were they/are they involved presending, on the field, home assignment and any transitional ministry time?
Did they interview you? Were they actively involved with the agency? Did they take the place of an agency? Do they write you letters? Do you have short-term teams visit? Do they debrief with you? Are they your only financial supporter? Are they the largest supporter?
What did they do good? What did they do bad?
Ok, now that I have started writing these questions I have so many more! Sooooo if you are blessed to be sent by a great church let me know because I have LOTS of questions!
We can always move this discussion to the Facebook page if we want too!
