WELCOME!

M.O.R.E. Network (Missionary Opportunities for Resourcing and Equipping) values serving and collaborating with others in support and care for Global Front Line Workers. This Library is a relational, collaborative, work in progress to provide resources for Member Care Providers, Church Mission Leaders, Cross-Cultural Workers and Third Culture Kids. We rely on Member Care* personnel to contribute.

Often, we are unaware of what Cross-Cultural Workers and Missionary Kids face, yet desire to proactively support those repatriating, transitioning, mobilizing, or remobilizing. This library points you to needed resources. 

Stronger Together, Jesus Christ’s message of love, calls us to serve others, no matter what ministry we’re associated with. Through selflessly serving others we experience God serving us.  

Every sending church, mission organization and training organization, have something important to offer. Offering what we have, we benefit others and become wealthy recipients, sharing in God’s glory. 

What resources are the most effective? Where do I start? What are the “must access” resources vs the “nice to know” resources? The MNRL points the way. 

WE NEED YOU! How can you serve? 

  • By recommending books, blogs, videos, magazines, articles, &c.

* Member Care is defined as: 
The holistic care of Christian Cross-Cultural Workers enabling them to effectively accomplish the work God has called them to. From home, (sending church & mission org), on assignment, return home (short stays, long stays or permanent repatriation), it includes financial support, adequate preparation and training, psychological assessment, emotional health, spiritual maturity, and growth, and physical health. It respects all members of the family, is guided by Biblical principles, and includes healthy boundaries of confidentiality, informed consent, and honest communication between parties involved.

The M.O.R.E. (Missionary Opportunities for Resourcing and Equipping) Network Resource Library is … 

A Wikipedia-like resource for Evangelical Missions, making evident greatly needed resources in the field of Member Care*.  

A relational and collaborative work, a work in progress, welcoming all who desire access to Member Care resources for Cross-Cultural Workers and Third Culture Kids. 

A highly participatory work of art, built on the foundations of Christ’s work in us, and our values of collaboration (non-competition), cooperation, serving others, all with the focus on supporting and caring for our Global Front Line Workers. 

Often we don’t know the questions we need to use; we aren’t aware of the issues CCWs face; yet we desire to proactively support those repatriating from their cross cultural assignment. This library points you to the resources you need. 

Stronger Together is what Jesus Christ teaches us … the antithesis of going it alone. We do not protect our own turf, nor do we focus on ourselves alone. Through the act of serving others we experience God serving us.  

Every sending church, every mission organization, every training organization have some of what is needed. Only by offering our 5 loaves and 2 fish, do we benefit each other and become wealthy recipients, sharing in God’s glory. 

There is no shortage of Member Care resources, with much new created daily. What resources are the most effective? Where do I start? What are the “must access” resources vs the “nice to know” resources? The MNRL points the way.

* Member Care is defined as: 

The holistic care of Christian cross-cultural workers so they can effectively do the work God has called them to do. It starts from home – the sending church, continues on the field, and on return home - during short stays, long stays or permanent return. It includes financial support, adequate preparation and training, psychological assessment, emotional health, spiritual maturity, and growth, and physical health. It is done by many members of the body of Christ in cooperation with the worker, and God the Holy Spirit. It is done with respect for the person and their family, guided by Biblical principles and healthy boundaries of confidentiality, informed consent, and honest communication between parties involved. 

The whole family is considered in making decisions about the type of care or interventions, especially children. The expectation is that the model must adapt to the individual or family, not just the person or family adapt to the model. 

It is driven by the worker themselves, supported by the sending church and mission org; always recognizing that God can redeem anything; and the Spirit of God is at the centre of all healing and wholeness, and is the best Member Care Provider. 

The goal is to help the worker know Christ more and become more Christ – like. This is more important than getting a job done or “mission accomplished”. This is believing that a godly worker is an emotionally, spiritually, and physically healthy worker, and that God is responsible for the fruit of the ministry. Thus there will be results and the ministry will be accomplished. 

Redemption and healing will include preserving the unity of the body of Christ through efforts toward reconciliation, peacemaking, and the giving and receiving of forgiveness.  

The Christian worker will take responsibility for their own “member care”, in the sense that they will not expect others to do everything for them. They will be committed to their own holistic health and cooperate with those who want to help them. Not any one person, church or agency should think they are the sole provider of member care or feel it is their sole responsibility. 

Peer involvement in member care is encouraged – loving and caring for each other as team members, brothers and sisters in Christ.  

Sharing of resources, methods and tools for member care by sending churches & organizations across countries, is an essential part of participating in the unity of the body of Christ and together accomplishing the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. 

Having guidelines and procedures can be helpful in clarifying expectations and giving fair treatment to all and ensuring clear lines of communication.  

Member care is an integral part of kingdom building and of reaching the world with the gospel
