RECEIVING MISSIONARIES DURING RE-ENTRY
SENDING CHURCH ELEMENT #15

A sending church receives missionaries during re-entry by planning to meet their missionaries’ needs (including those of their children) when they return on furlough, transition indefinitely, or retire. Aware of the unique challenges of re-entry, church leaders and members give special attention to debriefing and ongoing care. They also seek to help missionaries assimilate back into culture and reintegrate into the church’s local mission.
