What is Missions Mobilization Coaching?
 
The Northwest Ministry Network launched a coaching initiative called “CULTIVATE” which offers several equipping opportunities for specific areas of missions ministry and leadership. Missions Mobilization coaching focuses on five key areas to assist pastors and missionaries in cultivating healthy missions engagement and support within the Northwest Ministry Network.
  1. Cultivate healthy missions paradigm among pastors, leaders and missionaries.
  2. Cultivate healthy missions communications and missionary itineration visits.
  3. Cultivate healthy relationships between pastors, missionaries and missions leadership.
  4. Cultivate healthy partnerships between pastors, churches and missionaries.
  5. Cultivate healthy missions support and engagement. 
 
 
 
How We Support & Equip Pastors
 
We seek to…
1.) Shape and enhance pastor's missions paradigm by exposing them to the challenges and complexities of planting the church and ministering the gospel in foreign lands.
2.) Help pastors develop their local church missions strategy.
3.) Help pastors engage their church in short term missions with trip planning resources and coaching support.
4.) Help pastors get acquainted with short and long term missions opportunities around the world that are available to them and their churches members.
5.) Create environments for pastors to cultivate healthy relationships with missionaries.   

 
 
Paradigm Trips & Cohort for Pastors


 
Paradigm trips are a cooperative effort between the Northwest Ministry Network and Assemblies of God World Missions. Each trip is intentionally crafted to inform and introduce lead pastors to some of our high level AGWM missionaries  and their ministries and the national leaders and churches they work with. It is  also to expose pastors to the complex realities, challenges and opportunities to  building God’s church around the world. Paradigm is not a typical “missions trip”  designed to engage the team in ministry overseas, but rather for pastors to  learn deeply, experience the complexities of the foreign field, see our missions  ministries in action, make critical observations, ask key questions, build lasting  relationships and enhance (and in many cases radically impact) their missions  paradigm.

How We Support & Equip Missionaries
 
We seek to serve our world missionaries in the area of re-entry and itineration in order to accelerate the successful departure to the field by:

1.) Embracing missionaries, their call, sacrifice and worth.
2.) Acquainting missionaries with current missionary fundraising environments.
3.) Equipping missionaries with tools to effectively and confidently engage these environments.
4.) Connecting missionaries with skilled coaches and media professionals who can assist in needed areas.
5.) Create environments for missionaries to cultivate healthy relationships with pastors.  

 
 
Itineration Coaching for Missionaries


This re-entry workshop will help missionaries navigate culture shifts and trends in the NWMN that affect fundraising, missions support, and local church missions engagement. We review how culture has changed, church styles, church expectations of missionaries, church missions strategies and how they prioritize support, changes in fundraising approaches, tips, resources and best practices.
 
This workshop will also help missionaries learn the needs that pastors and churches have when a missionary comes to itinerate as well as gain an appreciation for the role pastors play in advancing God’s kingdom in their local communities and around the world.
