Foundation of Debriefing Beliefs
- Everyone has a story. Everyone longs to tell their story. Everyone needs to tell their story.
- We have seen God’s healing power when people are seen, heard, understood and cared for.
- Story needs to be processed in the affective domain. We know a person’s story impacts heart and soul.
- Effective debriefing and personal renewal are integral in long-term health in cross-cultural messengers and their families.
- We believe in the ministry of safe harbor. God has called us to this as a community for families and individuals.
Vital for Health in Long-term Cross-cultural Workers
- The high stresses, losses, cultural transitions and intense ministry of cross-cultural messengers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ make the effective debriefing and personal renewal integral elements in long-term health in cross-cultural workers and their families.
- We believe that personal debriefing is a vital process needed on a regular basis for all those on home assignment, transitioning to new fields or roles, and transitioning back to their passport culture.
- Adults and children alike are impacted by cross-cultural ministry life. Families processing within an understanding community are able to see each other beyond their own stories and strengthen family relationships.
- Feelings of disillusionment, frustration, isolation, lack of understanding, and relational deterioration are far too common. Without a safe place to process, these essential Gospel workers will either become less effective or drop out of ministry all together.
