Member Care
30 members in ministry in Asia,
another 8 in New Zealand
and 17 TCKs
As a sending country we need to ensure OMF New Zealand treats enquirers, members and their families
“. . . with love, care and respect. It involves consideration of their physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs, throughout their term of service, so that they can find their ministry fulfilling and be effective in doing God’s will . . . . .
The point of member care is to launch and sustain resilient individuals in successful ministry.”

standing with our members before we need
DVDs, books and training protrams.

at critical stages of their journey in ministry.

They always made time to talk with us,
and do fun things as a family.
II grew spiritually because I was always seeing faith in action.
I remember facing a lot of harassment from fellow students because of my nationality. School would have been unbearable, had I not had one close Indonesian friend in my class.
I was a pent up and frustrated teenager with enormous ambitions and seemingly no way of realizing them, stuck up in rural, northern Japan and isolated from the English speaking world.
