Width and Depth of the Assessment of New Personnel

Saturday, 9:30 – 10:45 AM

Presented by: Joel Sutton

This workshop is designed for all those involved in assessing the readiness of potential missionary personnel to thrive in a cross-cultural setting. The group will be asked to provide feedback in the following areas: what elements in an applicant’s life do they assess, how is assessment shared between the church and the agency, how is this done in a legally compliant way, what are their guidelines for the various emotional wellness and lifestyle issues, and how do they delve deeply in order to determine the level of healing? The group will be sharing best practices in assessment in a way that can benefit everyone.

Primary Audience: Those who are tasked with assessing the readiness of prospective missionary personnel
