How the Rest of the World is Doing Missionary Training and What We Can Learn from Them (TR)
Friday @ 3:30pm
Ethnocentrism exists not only in the field missionary but also at home in the structures of our mission organizations. Missionary trainers are not exempt from this error. Rarely do those of us from the West take the time to slow down and learn from the experiences and innovation of missionary leaders from the rest of the world. This workshop will prompt a dialog exploring creativity and learning theory that is being practiced and perfected today by missionary sending agencies and associations in other parts of the world. Explore what you may want to adopt and adapt as you continually improve your missionary training program.
