TREASURE IN JARS OF CLAY

Membercare EuropeTREASURE IN JARS OF CLAY – building resilience in the midst of turmoil

Mission workers are no strangers to change, stress and trauma – and next year’s European Member Care Consultation seeks to answer the questions:

i) how do we prepare mission workers to be resilient in the midst of turmoil?

ii) how do we help wounded mission workers bounce back effectively?

Our plenary speakers will be Frauke Schaefer (author of Healthy, Resilient and Effective in Cross-Cultural Ministry), Annemie Grosshauser and Scott Shaum, and our devotions will once again be led by popular Christian speaker and prolific author Tony Horsfall.

In addition to the 3-night consultation, there will be a package of other associated events including:

  • a two day security training workshop with experienced security adviser Phil Harper
  • a special pre-conference for people new to member care
  • an Individually Guided Retreat with Annieke van Dijk and Marielle Prins
  • opportunity to extend your stay at the hotel with specially discounted rates

EMCC 2018 will take place 12-15 March 2018 in the Hotel Gran Cervantes in Torremolinos, Spain and bookings will open soon.  The cost will be €400 for a single room, and €375 per person in a twin room with an early bird discount of €30 for those who book and pay by 30th November 2017.  Please get the dates in your diaries now!
