What We Wish Senders Knew: For Goers

In January, 358 cross-cultural workers participated in an anonymous survey about what they think might jeopardize them being on the field. Why ask such a question?

I’m glad you asked! I was invited to present a workshop in late February called “Issues M’s Are Dealing with That You’re Not Talking About” to an audience of primarily senders. The people who attended the workshop came from church M committees, counselors, member care professionals, and people who care about cross-cultural workers. In my description for the workshop I said, “Let’s talk about the things we normally avoid: sex, politics, and changing culture.”

As I told the survey participants, I could guess at what they are facing, but I wanted to ask them so that I could say, “Hey, here are real answers from real people.” I also like compiled results because they give a broader perspective than the little patch of grass that each of us is standing on.

The results poured in and were so insightful!

I have never had the response to anything that I’ve presented like I had to the workshop. Though both men and women were in attendance, the next day man after man came up to me, wanting to talk about and process what they heard.

“Can I hug you?” one asked. There was a need to physically respond to what cross-cultural workers are actually facing and not talking about.

“I feel like that song from The Beverly Hillbillies . . . ‘up from the ground came a bubbling crude, oil that is.’ Amy, this is just the beginning, there is SO MUCH to be mined!”

“Your presentation wasn’t anecdotal, it was what real people said.” Exactly “So, you need to do more surveys, we need to hear directly from people.” We will!

We wanted to give your senders the opportunity to hear this workshop as well. This version is geared for goers and is 58 minutes long.

Original price was: $9.99.Current price is: $0.00.

How long is a workshop?

They are videos that tend to run between 45 and 55 minutes. We want you to get your money’s worth without being overloaded.

What is the “notes” feature
I don’t know about you, but I have notes written in this notebook, or on that piece of paper, or on a handout . . . that I either I can’t find, or forget about. We want you to be able to have all of your notes in one place that you can easily access. Every workshop will have a “notes” button below the video, click on it and a notebook will open up on the right-hand side. You may take notes as you listen to the workshop. When you are finished, click save” and your notes will be saved in the “Notes” section of your My Trellis. You may also print or download your notes. At any time you can edit, add to, or delete from your notes. We have formatted your notes so that when you download them they look nice and you shouldn’t need to reformat.
How much does a workshop cost?

The month that a workshop goes live, it is available for $9.99. After the initial month, the workshop will still be available for $19.

Who can participate?
All are welcome! While the Workshop is crafted especially for people who are serving overseas or plan to serve overseas, many of the workshops will offer something to anyone with an interest in Christian cross-cultural work. If you purchase a workshop, it is intended for you and one other (a spouse if married, or teammate if single). Many workshops will be beneficial for a team to watch and discuss together. On the honor system, please purchase the appropriate amount or contact Amy for a group discount. Amy@globaltrellis.com.
I clicked on the workshop in My Trellis and nothing worked.
I think you might have clicked on the workshop graphic art. Scroll down and near the bottom of the page you will see Course Content. Under course content you will see the name of the workshop you purchased. Click on the title and you will be able to watch the video.
Do you have closed captioning or subtitles?
At this point, no we do not. The workshops are presented in English.
What if I am a more sensitive area of the world?
We are aware of your sensitivities! I have asked presenters not to use the “m” word and instead talk about cross-cultural work, global workers, and our line of work. You, however, know your context and if these guidelines are enough for you.
