The Family Care Project focuses on World Team missionaries and their families by providing support to attend family retreats organized by the Global Member Care Team and for their children to attend designated re-entry programs.
The Global Member Care team’s hope is to organize area-specific family retreats to help families proactively address, process and be prepared for the unique challenges that come from living cross-culturally. The added benefit is that not only this project benefit individual families but will also focus on the development and deepening of community between families within World Team. Also, by offering this proactive care we anticipate that it will lower attrition rates and help families thrive in their multicultural ministry settings and therefore increase their overall effectiveness in their ministry in church-planting among the unreached.
The project will also focus specifically on the stressful transition of re-entry of missionary families. By securing partners to assist in funding the retreats which include re-entry programs it will strengthen World Team families’ resiliency in this challenging new family life stage.
In addition, this project will cover the cost of supplying a copy of Unstacking Your Grief Tower, by Lauren Wells for all World Team adult MKs. The book that will help them process the undeniable challenges they have faced from growing up overseas.
This project is essential to equipping World Team families to face the various stressors they will experience as a result of living/serving overseas.
