Charis Training - Tony Horsfall

It is the aim of Charis Training to enable individuals (especially those in full-time Christian ministry) to experience the wonderful grace of God in a personal way, and as a result begin to enjoy the kind of intimacy with God that is promised to us in the Bible, and which leads to a fruitful and effective life.

ARREST - the site for resilient expatriates

Debbie and Dave Hawker offer mission and humanitarian workers a chance to stop and reflect, during retreats and reviews. Assessments and therapy help workers stop and consider their direction before proceeding. Education and supervision help equip workers for the road ahead.

Syzygy Mission Support Network

One of the primary reasons for discouraged and burnt-out mission workers leaving their place of service early or for avoidable reasons is lack of adequate support, be it financial, prayer, practical or pastoral. The aim of Syzygy Missions Support Network is to help improve the support that mission workers receive by forging strategic alliances within the missions sector and working together with churches and sending agencies to provide key services that can prevent a critical failure of support.
