We are excited to finally announce our positions! I will announce them here in a nutshell; the more expanded version is in our newsletter that will go out later today. If you’d like additional information, please drop us a note!
Our ministries with BCM conveniently all start with “M”:
- Media: working on the website and doing writing weekly for internal newsletters
- Mentoring: mentoring new candidates as they prepare for the field
- Master trainer: I will be doing more teacher training and becoming what is called a “master trainer” within BCM
- Mobilization: representatives for BCM and also working with the short-term department to plan, train, and lead vision trips around the world.
In addition to BCM, we have partnered with Missionary Retreat Fellowship to help run the facility. This is the part of our new ministries that took the longest to finalize since there had to be a working partnership between BCM and MRF. We were actually contacted about MRF back in like October, but kept it really to ourselves in case it just didn’t work out. It took a lot of prayer and quite a few meetings to make this come about, but we are so excited about this opportunity! We are in charge of the homes and the hospitality. This is right up our alley and we’re ecstatic about living and working here. This also allows us to be much more involved in our home church and we love that.
We don’t know yet how much extra support we will need to raise, but we will send out a newsletter in the near future letting you know what that is. If you have additional questions about all this, please don’t hesitate to ask! Thanks for your patience with us and we hope this is as exciting an announcement for you as it was for us!
