About 20% of our missionaries work in international contexts outside the United States. Our international partners are most often the specific internationally-based churches or ministries that will receive a missionary. Many of these international partners also have partnerships with US sending churches, including churches that we serve in the US.
Our missionary assessment for international partners includes a set of additional screenings for international readiness, including psychological screenings and training with Mission Training International for success in language and cultural competence.
We partner with a limited number of countries only as we have a local partner church or church network and can provide reasonable guidance on security and culture.
