Every year, WIM hosts a week-long Orientation and Training for prospective missionaries. It is a time when they can learn the steps to the mission field. Each “trainee” gets one-on-one attention with our member care, training, and administrative staff. The staff works hard to introduce “trainees” to the family of WIM and to answer questions regarding cross-cultural ministry. During the training, seasoned missionaries with decades of experience teach on various topics. Below is a list of some of the topics covered in the past:
- Cultural Adaptation
- Stress and Burnout
- Effective Team Communication
- Cross-Cultural Ministry
- Budgeting and Debt
- Ministry Support Team Building
- Vision and Personal Strategy
- Conflict Resolution
- Language Learning
This year, our orientation will take place at the WIM headquarters on June 23-30. If you are interested in joining us for Orientation and Training Week, you can begin the application process by completing the preliminary questionnaire. Please begin this process as soon as possible so we can begin the conversation with you about what you sense the Lord leading you to do and how WIM can assist you in fulfilling your calling. More information regarding the training week is available on our Orientation and Training page.
If you would like to know more about this event, please don’t hesitate to contact the WIM office.
