Find Closure and Move Forward

Whether you spent months or years on the mission field, readjustment to your home culture can be both challenging and dangerous. During our private debriefing sessions, our director and his wife work with individuals, couples, and families to help them process their recent transition. Topics discussed include:

  • Finding closure to your time on the field
  • Dealing with reverse culture shock
  • Plugging into home church life
  • Identifying personal change
  • Moving forward with purpose

“Moving back to my home community was very difficult. I struggled to find purpose and had a lot of anxiety. The debriefing program at MTC was a godsend! It was so good to process my transition with someone who had gone through reintegration. Joel and Crystal helped me understand that my church family truly cared about me but may have struggled to show that because they never experienced what I was going through. Joel and Crystal also helped me make some goals for the future. This was the first time during reintegration that I felt hopeful as I thought about my future! I am so thankful that God directed my church to send me through the debriefing program, and I highly recommend it if you are returning from missions!”
