Season 2 Ep 13: Serving as Senders: Missionary Care and the Letter of Philippians

The Upstream Podcast was created to share our rich conversations about sending churches with the world. For anyone passionate about the overlap between God’s church & God’s mission, this podcast will be great food for thought.

Neal Pirolo of Emmaus Road International joined us for a conversation about an often overlooked topic, serving as senders. The majority of Christians will serve in full-time missions roles overseas, yet we don’t often talk about those who stay even though they are integral to the health of the missionary. Neal has decades of experience serving as a missionary and a minister to missionaries. He is someone we at the Upstream Collective look up to and often reference his work.

This episode was sponsored by our friends at Equipped to Go. Equipped to Go provides a number of services to individuals or groups desiring to be culturally adept while traveling, living and working in foreign countries.
