Are sending organizations missing something key to helping cross-cultural ministers thrive? Seeing cross-cultural ministers thrive is important not only for these ministers, but for the Kingdom work our sending organizations exist for. Traditionally, organizations have engaged missionary well-being by addressing the internal stresses missionaries bring to the field (psychology) and the external context missionaries face on the field (culture stress). With these guiding lenses, limited attention has been given to the role of organizations themselves (culture, policies, leadership) in influencing missionary well-being. Addressing this gap, this webinar will draw on research from both the business world and interviews with field missionaries to discuss the influential role organizations play in the well-being of those they are sending.
