In the March 15th edition of Brigada, we mentioned that we were “Curious about Counselling Centers for Missionaries” (item #7 in that edition). Several users have responded (thank you!) with a growing list of centers for care:
Barnabas Zentrum: Ministering to Those Who Minister
He Restoreth Ministries, Inc.
Heartstream Resources for Cross-cultural Workers
Le Rucher Ministries
Minnesota Renewal Center
Missionary Care from Caring for Others
Paracletos: Coming Alongside Missionaries
Servant Care: Caring for those who serve, and equipping Saints for ministry!
Honestly, I was surprised at the number of centers. If there are others, feel free to add them as a comment to this item in the web version and we’ll publish an expanded list in a future edition. Thank you!
Thank you for including our name among the list of counseling centers who provide member care and other services for missionaries. Could you please also add us to the portion of the list that mentions places to go for missionary debriefing? We provide end of term and crisis debriefing services for a number of mission agencies. Thank you. Patrick Repp, director. Minnesota Renewal Center.

We’ll ask Jenny to look at these comments. Hopefully, she’ll make these additions or corrections for us. Feel free to note them here.
