Making the Most
What a strange season to be moving to the field. On top of a global pandemic you might wonder, “Will I like the food? Will I learn the language? How much of a difference can I make in a year? Surely it won’t be hard to stay connected to God or get along with your teammates."
But what if you’re wrong? We've got you covered. Don’t miss this chance to connect with other in their first year on the field. You do not have to figure everything out alone.
It is possible to Make the Most of your first year on the field. But too often newbies—even well supported newbies—find themselves more alone a few months to their first year.
Thankfully, there is a potential, though less traveled path where you can connect with others who are also in their first year on the field. You will meet month on zoom to discuss Getting Started: Making the Most of Your First Year on the Field with fellow first-year-people in real time.
Sometimes you need to find a place where you can let your guard down without watching eyes—even if your teammates and local friends are wonderful.
You’ve found that place.
Making the Most runs from September 2020 to June 2021. (Another cohort will launch in January 2021)
Registration closes August 31, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. MST. Getting Started needs to be purchased separatedly. Participants need to have moved or move to the field in 2020.
You will have access to monthly zoom calls where you will discuss topics such as:
- Somewhere Between Awful and Amazing
- You Will Be Too Something
- Torn Between Worlds
- God and You
- New Relationships (But Not With People)
- Four Languages You Didn’t Know You’d Learn
- Culture and Team
Zoom calls will be the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 a.m. MST. They will be recorded and available for one week to group members who miss the call.
You will also:
- Have access to a private Facebook group where you can ask questions, share, and pray for each other outside of the zoom calls.
- Receive A Fruitful First Year by Amy Young – using the Fruit of the Spirit this nine-month guide will help you stay spiritual flourishing during this crucial transition.
Reviews from Getting Started:
I cannot recommend this book enough. It was everything my heart needed to hear two weeks into my first year on the field of cross-cultural service. Seriously, there were times that I really thought she had read my mind. Her advice and wisdom is priceless. —Kayla
This book couldn’t have been more perfectly timed for me! In my own “first year,” the ability to hear from so many others who survived their first years gave me such courage when I wondered if I will. The insights into common mindsets that are common and less than desirable in the first year helps me a lot as I learn how to think about my life.—H.M.
