• Post-Field

    Reflect. Renew. Pass On.

What is the Post-Field Stage?

If you’re returning home after a season of cross-cultural mission, we want to support you with practical and spiritual issues you may face. Be it reverse culture shock, seeking a fresh vision or looking to pass on your experience, we'd love to partner with you as you transition to the next stage of your journey.

Debrief and decompression time are both essential to transition to the next stage of your journey. We can offer coaching and debriefing services.

Once you have re-adjusted, you become a priceless resource to the missions community – we suggest finding ways to become a trainer/mentor/coach to others who are coming up through the ranks. The FieldPartner community may be in need of your help!
