Directors of Member Care
OUR GOAL is to see all of our missionaries thrive, not just survive.
This goal will be realized through each missionary having a meaningful, relational connection to someone who cares for them, can resource them, if needed, and who loves them unconditionally.
Member Care Team Member: Our member care team is comprised of fellow missionaries in Globe International. Our objectives include:
The “heart” of member care is an individual’s relationship with the Lord. Caring for oneself and one another within our mission community forms the “backbone” of member care. We want to see each person empowered in their spiritual walk and in their personal growth so that the Kingdom of God impacts the world they influence.
“alone we can do so little, TOGETHER we can do SO MUCH.”
– Helen Keller
In Globe International, we understand that each area of service, whether in Asia, Africa, Europe, Central or South America, has its own difficulties and nuances. We will strive to have a member care team member who is familiar with that particular region. We also will work together with local churches encouraging them to support THEIR missionary through financial support, prayer, helping with rest times (vacations) and retreats.
“Directors, Bob and Melissa Hill have helped so much with regular encouraging emails, and monthly face to face video calls. I have sought advice from them many times through these video calls. In the last five years I have been visited by them and other members of the member care group. Each time they have helped me to navigate through very touchy situations. Every missionary needs a member care group to help them through rough times and celebrate the victories.”
– Cheri Thompson, Kenya
“Missionary Care provides emotional and spiritual support and understanding for missionaries working in cross-cultural settings. We began doing missionary care because we had experienced the challenges of missionary life and we wanted to encourage others facing the same challenges.”
– Ken & Becky Holderman, Member Care team members
