What Do We Offer?
From Mission to Mission Re-entry Workshops provide a safe and comfortable place where missioners and volunteers are understood. We offer two Re-entry Workshop formats, a 10-day Workshop and a Weekend Workshop (Thursday evening – Sunday noon).
- We encourage those who have served for three years or more to attend our 10-day Workshop because it offers a greater amount of time for reflection and discussion, as well as it covers topics that would be relevant for someone returning after many years in mission that are not included in the weekend format.
- Our Weekend Workshop is an abbreviated version of our longer workshop and is designed for those with limited time availability. Those who have served for 1-3 years usually attend this workshop.
Is this workshop for you?
One of our workshop participants wrote the following to those who are considering our Re-entry Workshop:
*Do you want to share your experience with others who have sympathetic ears?
*Do you want to find the deeper meaning and gifts of your experience?
*Do you want to be among others who share similar experiences?
*Do you want help and support through the “in-between” time and help to “come home”?
Then this workshop is for you.
When is the best time to attend the workshop?
There is no required length of time after returning for participants to attend our workshop. Some come when their schedule allows it. For those who have flexibility in their schedule, our past participants have suggested the following timeframe for when it’s best to attend:
- Those returning after 1-3 years: Three months to three years after returning
- Those returning after 3-50 years: Six months to three years after returning
There is a benefit in waiting until your life has calmed down from the chaos and intensity of returning and when you are in a better place to reflect on your experience. You will receive different benefits depending on when you attend. Our workshop does make a difference, so please come whenever you are available.
