What are participants saying?
“We need to multiply this teaching. I am eager to see it made available, not only to our Pioneers’ global workforce, but to workers with other mission agencies as well. I believe the spiritual survival workshops will become an enduring and profoundly helpful dimension of our missionary training strategy for years to come.”
-Steve Richardson (Director of Pioneers USA)
"I was driven out of ministry because I was completely blind to my terrain. I was ineffective at setting boundaries and blind to the traps the enemy was setting for me. I wish I had had this course before I left and will carry this knowledge with me when I return."

“Every session had special ‘aha’ moments for me. It was all so fundamental and essential”
