Your church leaders can check out the SEND: EXTENDED TERM part of this website, which will help them think through their part in the process. Talk to the leaders of the local church where you fellowship, give them opportunity to ask questions, assess where you’re at, give recommendations and provide input.

Throughout the process, continue serving in your current God-given context.
We’re not here to tell you or your church leaders what to do, but we are here to provide you with decades of experience helping mission workers get out to where God’s called them.
