SEND values training at all stages of a missionary’s career. We provide training onsite, online, or through local seminars, and we also recommend other training resources that will help you become a missionary and make disciples.
- Pre-field: We provide training on raising support and preparing for cross-cultural, disciple-making ministry. We assess personal needs and may recommend other beneficial training.
- On-field: Missionary coworkers coordinate language and orientation for you. You will also have access to ministry skills and missiological training, such as church planting and coaching workshops.
- Leadership: For those in leadership roles, SEND provides training and coaching to help you effectively guide your team as you make disciples among the unreached.
- Returning home: SEND offers Reconnect, a three-day group retreat offered at least twice a year for returning missionaries. Reconnect focuses on debrief/reflection, spiritual encouragement, necessary training, and connection to the SEND community and office.
We encourage SEND missionaries to pursue graduate programs, professional seminars and conferences. SEND is a missions organization that values lifelong development.
