Here at Shepherd’s Staff we are often asked to coach new missionaries and their home churches in the missionary support raising process. It is why we have focused a series of blog posts on the topic.
For your convenience, we’ve gathered them in one place.
These brief posts are simply entry points and can never replace one of our training seminars. Please contact us if you or your church would like further help in this area.
