Issues to ponder when preparing to send someone out to front-line missions

Issues to ponder when preparing to send someone out to front-line missions

Imagine… You are a new missionary recruit about to depart for your assignment abroad. You are theologically trained, you have experience of ministry and you are very, very clear about your ‘call’ to go where you are now headed. BUT – and it’s a big ‘but’, though don’t realise it yet – you have not […]

Who or What is a Third Culture Kid?

Who or What is a Third Culture Kid?

Who or what is a TCK? A while ago, I met with a missionary family from a large Asian country working in the Middle East. They are a culture-blended family to begin with (both parents are from a Korean-Chinese background, and they speak both languages at home). On top of those cultures, they and their […]

    Ross & Christine’s training and ministry have always had a biblical base, integrity and practicality. This material meets a need vital for the mission field and use on the ground. It will help to make Jesus known in different cultures.

    I have followed Ross since his student days at Cambridge when he also joined OM for a short time. I have seen God using him and his wife in wonderful ways and their commitment to China is outstanding. They have a teaching ministry that has impacted many lives and you will be blessed as you take time to read and listen.

    The Patersons have been a lifelong inspiration to me in laying down their lives for the call to cross-cultural missions. I cannot think of any better training available on the web than FieldPartner, which is the synthesis of their five decades of learning on the ground as authentic practitioners.

    Before going on a short mission trip to China, I learned a lot at the Barnabas School of Missions, which was built by the Antioch Missions founder Ross Paterson and his wife Christine. The program provides training to challenge us to want to see God glorified among the nations. Ross and Christine’s 48 years of mission experiences taught me how to do it - and how not to do it!
  • "We have been working cross-culturally in China now for going on 12 years. It's had its ups, it’s had its downs. We brought up four children cross culturally, which also had challenges. But one thing that has definitely prepared us for all those challenges is the training that we received at the beginning of our time working cross-culturally. Ross and Christine Paterson had a massive part in that and it really did help us."

  • "I am a huge fan of cross culture training before hitting the mission field... I would go as far as to say is absolutely the difference between being successful and lasting out long-term on the mission field and burning out within a short period of time and having to head back home"
