Excellent, affordable missionary training | Pre-field training
We’d like to tell you about new friends of ours at TRAIN International. Brian and the staff at TRAIN offer excellent, affordable pre-field training, cross-cultural and language acquisition training, as well as re-entry/debriefing sessions to help faith-based organizations and mission agencies prepare their missionaries and workers before going overseas.
ACQUIRE is a two-week intensive program offered by TRAIN International to specifically help overseas workers acquire the language and learn skills that will continue to help them in their first years overseas.
ABIDE is TRAIN International’s five-day renewal/re-entry seminar or workshop focused on debriefing, dealing with stress on the field and at home, reverse culture shock, and prepares workers for having a productive, refreshing time while on home service.
TRAIN also assists and coaches churches to effectively send and sustain their members and teams overseas on the field either directly or through a mission organization (ACCESS). This weekend seminar helps churches more effectively partner with their missionaries on the field, and can be scheduled at your church. They also assist churches in setting up a missions committee, a missions program and more.
For most of their training sessions (ABIDE, ORIENT and ACQUIRE), TRAIN has an equivalent children’s and youth component as well as providing competent, quality childcare for toddlers and younger. Parents can stay focused on their training sessions knowing that their children are being cared for, learning cross-cultural skills and having fun.
While there are a number of missionary training programs and pre-field training programs, some of the most well-known programs cost 2X to 3X what TRAIN International charges (since most of their professionals work full-time in counseling or ministryallowing them to charge less for their services). We highly recommend you check them out at:

TRAIN International equips individuals and teams preparing to live and work cross-culturally and provides debriefing when they return from the field. TRAIN International also offers coaching to churches who are sending and supporting cross-cultural workers. Our goal is that workers go prepared, stay effective, and return healthy and prepared for their next phase of ministry.
