Step 1: Respond


The first step is to RESPOND to God’s call. We believe that a big part of the biblical response to a sense of God’s calling is to prayerfully involve others. Talk to your elders, give them opportunity to ask questions, assess where you’re at, give recommendations and provide input. Think about when, where, and how long you’d like to go. Throughout the process, continue serving in your current God-given context. Please get in touch with Phil Parsons ( at CMML for help, support and guidance.

CMML is not here to tell you or your elders what to do, but we are here to provide you with decades of experience helping mission workers get out to where God’s called them. We’re here to Serve, Inform, and Encourage you as you GO - and to do the same for your assembly as they SEND. So, if you’re responding to the call to GO and make disciples, read on!

As you consider what God may be calling you to, we've prepared a list of questions that are designed to help you think through some of the factors involved in cross-cultural missionary work.
