Life after the Mission Field

J. Wendell Hochstetler, Abbeville, SC

Welcome home, fellow missionary. May God bless you for sharing your life these past years away from home. Now it’s time to settle back into a normal and realistic lifestyle. You will now need to pay for your bread, milk, and eggs out of your own pocket. You are responsible to fully support your family, along with helping in the financial needs of those on the mission field. Back to a 40-hour work week month after month. Is this the life I want to live? What does this lifestyle have to do with missions? Come join us as we listen and encourage one another.

Church Planters’ Forum & Retreat

Larry Bergey, Lansdale, PA

The fields are white and ready to harvest. For nearly two millenniums, church planting is the way Jesus’ disciples have gone about reaping that harvest. The goal of this forum and retreat is to strengthen a vision for indigenous church planting around the world including church plants in or near North American cities. This gathering of church planters (and others who desire to be involved in church planting) encourages learning from each other and discourages competition and suspicion. It also provides a unique opportunity for church planters who are experiencing burnout or disappointment to receive fresh vision!
