Presented by Larrie Gardner, International Personnel Consultant and Trainer, Summer Institute of Linguistics
Why another book on missionary care? Anything unique about it? This book reflects the scope of work that Dick and Larrie did throughout their 57 years of ministry with Wycliffe and SIL – and serving many other mission organizations. They were involved with screening and selection of workers, training, field work (translation and literacy), administration and leadership.
Additionally, they earned four graduate degrees in psychology and counselling. Larrie believes this convergence of the roles of leadership, administrator, academic and reflective practitioner has given them unique insights into life as a cross-cultural worker, care-giver and trainer.
They are not aware of another missions-related book that brings together in a single volume the administrative side (ethos of care) with the development and delivery of care. (Live webinar originally presented April 28, 2016)
