We look hard for the people God would want to go with us and join our global family, so we place a lot of time and attention into the coaching process of helping someone get to the decision of becoming a missionary. And once God has brought us the right people, we do everything to keep them healthy, supported and effective in their time serving God overseas.
Emotional Wellness Care
Crossing-cultures, learning language, and seeking to bring the gospel where it has not been heard taxes the deepest heart of a person. Those who have no network or experienced counselors who know the challenges of mission work and know how to restore a fallen soldier back to healthy ministry ... those who lack this often return from the field wounded and discouraged.
Our Paraclete Centre is staffed with experienced advocates to help you stand up again after stumbling and continue the work God called you to.
Ministry Development Guidance
Having the vision and seeing it advance on the ground in a foreign country in a foreign language are two different things. Our field leadership and International Ministry Directors act as advocates for you, guiding and supporting the development of your ministry.
Third-Culture Kid Coordination
Our Paraclete Centre has dedicated staff that monitors and pastors the Third Culture Kids in our WorldVenture family. Third Culture Kids is a term to describe the effect and unique experience of children from one culture who are raised in another culture. Not only does our staff create intentional community for the WorldVenture children, they counsel and advise parents on issues of education and the special needs of their children.
One high value for WorldVenture is education. Our culture provides opportunities for all international staff to pause field work to pursue advanced degrees. Our Paraclete Centre also provides continued practical training during home assignments and field conferences.
From a service perspective, WorldVenture handles many points of key logistics so that you are more free to spend time on ministry. WorldVenture headquarter services include financial processing of donations, yearly tax submission, communication materials production, mail processing, etc, All of these services and many others have the single goal of increasing freedom for the work to go forward on the field.
