Missio Nexus is excited to release our 2019 Field Attrition Study Research Report. This report examines trends in missionary attrition, identifies reasons why missionaries have left the field, highlights questions each agency should be considering for the future, and provides practical steps to assist organizations in serving missionaries well through transition.
