What do Senders do?

God has chosen the local church to be the primary means for fulfilling Christ’s commission; therefore, churches are primary in the sending process. At FieldPartner, we want to help sending churches to:

•  Affirm the call of one desiring to move to a new culture as a missionary.
•  Partner with agencies in assessing readiness for cross-cultural ministry.
•  Provide opportunities for growth and development in ministry.
•  Join in the partner development journey.
•  Provide ongoing care and support after deployment.

The Privilege of Being a Sending Church

I wonder what springs to mind when we think of sending and supporting mission workers? Perhaps there’s that line in your church budget for mission elsewhere. Or there are prayers in the midweek meeting and Sunday service. If we’re doing some giving and we’re doing some praying, is that the mission support thing covered...
