Member Care

Care for mission workers as whole people — spiritual, physical, and emotional — is critical to healthy and effective ministry.

Empowering People for the Mission of the Gospel

“Member care itself is caring for people,” says Deänne Boesel, Director of OC Member Care. “It is an ethos of who we are as a mission. It is our responsibility to make sure that we have healthy people going to the field and on the field. Healthy in spiritual, physical, and emotional ways.”

What Member Care Looks Like:

  • Caring for U.S. Sent Personnel
  • Caring for Global Alliance Partners
  • Caring for Mission Workers from Other Organizations Serving in Difficult Places
  • Pastoral Care and Pastoring of Pastors
  • Counseling
  • Sexual Wholeness Initiative (SWI) – To Equip Staff to Create a Climate of Openness, Safety, and Redemption in their Ministry Efforts
  • Programs Like the Transition and Integration Process (TIP) and Personnel Enrichment Program (PEP)
