What makes cross-cultural workers effective? A call from God? Yes. Prayer and financial support? Absolutely. But the foundational work to equip them for thriving ministry begins long before they arrive on the field.
That's the work Ted and Kaylin Offutt and their team have been tasked with doing for Encompass staff. In this issue, Ted provides insight into why training is so important. You'll read about Encompass' approach and how it comes together to give workers what they need—both to make disciples in another culture and to thrive personally and spiritually so disciple-making work can happen.
You'll discover how our training is put into practice. Several of our staff members share how their training experience has impacted their ministries and their lives.
You'll also learn—or rediscover—what happens when we pray and get seven in-depth ways you can pray for Encompass' cross-cultural trainees.
