c. Endorsement

Endorsement

As the leadership becomes more sure of a candidate’s call and direction, there will come a time when they are officially endorsed as someone who is preparing to go. Decisions need to be made about an agency or a process for training and equipping. Ideally, the church leaders would walk with the candidate through this process. We strongly recommend the raising of personal support teams by the candidate and the church’s backing in that endeavour would be important.
