Time invested now for a lifetime of fruitful ministry!
Is it possible that my success in connecting new staff to context, ministry, and team will mean their success in fulfilling the calling for which they have been sent? This is the thesis that is explored in this 5-week online course offered by CIT Next.
Audience: team/field leaders who will be integrating new team member(s) onto the field in the next 6 months or less.
Time commitment involved: 4 weeks of 6 hours per week. During the week preceding the launch of the four-week course, 2-4 hours of course orientation material will be presented.
Course creator and facilitator: Mark Morgenstern, former training director for ReachGlobal and current director for continuing learning through the CIT Next ministry of Center for Intercultural Training.
Please note that for maximum learning impact in this course, a learner will spend 30-90 minutes working on the course material over 3-4 separate days each week. Some of the course work will involve reading, writing, listening, and watching on the computer. Other pieces will involve interacting with others in your location or spending time in personal reflection, prayer, or Bible study.
Topics covered are the following:
- What is my job as a supervisor?
- Connecting to the context.
- Connecting to the team.
- Connecting to the ministry.
- Setting up for ongoing learning.
- What now? Tools and commitment for results.
Join a learning cohort of other missionary field leaders and together explore the process of onboarding new missionaries and laying the foundation for them to have a lengthy, healthy, and fruitful season of ministry.
