The central theme for MCtwo 2016, Soul Food to Go – Care of the Missionary Soul, reflects the reality that, soul care, the care of the inner life and spiritual/emotional well-being of our missionaries, is crucial in these days.  We want to help churches and missionary caregivers as they seek to:

  • understand the many challenges that grieve the missionary soul
  • understand how to fill up the souls of missionary appointees as part of their development and preparation for service
  • minister to the starving souls of their missionaries from afar, while they are overseas and endure the full gamut of mission challenges
  • effectively fatten their souls when they are on home assignment
