Ken and Carolyn are involved in preparing new missionaries for cross-culture ministry in cooperation with EMCC World Partners and MissionPREP in Toronto, Ontario.
Missionary Project Description:
Ken & Carolyn Benson are World Partners missionaries serving with a missionary training program called “MissionPREP” in Toronto, Ontario. Their 13 years of experience as missionaries in Portugal, and their training as teachers, has equipped them to help organize and facilitate courses, mentor and encourage the missionary families they serve, who are preparing to move cross-culturally.
They work with other facilitators offering 2 week programs, one in the area of culture and ministry orientation and another in the area of language acquisition. CrossTraining, a third program offered biennially, is an 8 month experiential program integrating academic study, an ethnic church practicum, an overseas internship and a strong mentoring component .
These programs are being used by EMCC World Partners to help equip people who are preparing for cross-cultural ministry.
The partnership between Ken and Carolyn, MissionPREP and EMCC World Partners to recruit and train the next generation of missionaries fits our mandate and vision for global ministry.
