Vision

We envision resilient communities of cross cultural workers caring for each other, equipped to thrive in the midst of life’s challenges and traumas.

Mission

As a mobile team, we exist to develop skills, facilitate community, and enhance resilience among cross-cultural workers.

Values

We believe in intentional community, vulnerability, managing conflicts among ourselves and mutual accountability. As a team, we embrace the following values:

Ministry Philosophy

Many of us in cross-cultural service focus on results and productivity.  While we certainly want to be fruitful for the Kingdom, Jesus gave us an example of ministering in a Spirit-led way, sustained by the love of His Father.  Henri Nouwen says in Out of Solitude that Jesus’ life was characterized by a rhythm with three primary elements which flowed in this order:

  1. Solitude: time alone for communion with the Father
  2. Community: investing in the lives of his disciples and receiving their support
  3. Ministry: healing, teaching, and pouring himself out for others

Our desire is to live as Jesus lived and to minister out of the overflow of our relationships with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as well as with the community He gives us.  Thanks for praying with us that we can live out of this rhythm.

We are servants of our Lord and our lives are devoted to loving others with humility out of the overflow of his love for us.

Believing that “weʼre all on the same team”, we partner with leadership and member care providers.  Equipping and coaching others is a privilege.

We are committed to truthfulness in speech, the fulfillment of promises and the quality delivery of our services.

Valuing the “wellness model” as the best approach to care for healthy workers,  we promote the strength and resilience of cross-cultural communities.

We catalyze local networks of member caregivers, equip and resource them, so that crisis response or other needed care is locally accessible in a timely manner.

We believe that multicultural and multidisciplinary teams of counselors, pastoral caregivers, trainers and administrators best meet the needs of the diverse community we serve.

We are committed to catalyze local member care networks and then coach and share resources to support their development.

As we care for others, we also commit to mutual and self-care in our MMCT community. This includes glad submission to our Governing Board and interaction with Regional Advisory Councils.
