You’ll work alongside KM leadership to clarify the details of your calling.
You’re looking for all kinds of information, and we’ve got it for you. You’ll also get the help you need to sort through the emotions and the thought processes, so you can get real clarity about your calling and other questions. Then you can move confidently to effectiveness as a cross-cultural servant. International teams of European mission workers are already serving on location with KM, and many are just looking and hoping for someone like you to join them. We’d love to help you get connected with them.
Local European Leaders and You
We work with local Europeans in every country and project. This makes your future mission team with us intentionally international. Think about it… You can see that working with a team that includes locals makes sense for ministering effectively on location in Europe! You’ll learn to use the language correctly for ministry. You won’t miss out on cultural cues and you’ll be able to steer clear of cultural missteps.
Avoid Pitfalls - Leverage Local Experience
Our European leadership has experience and success in church planting and evangelism in complex, sophisticated European cultures. You’ll be working with people who know how it works. Kontaktmission IS European, so we naturally do things the locally European way, because that’s what works in Europe! By using the experience of European leaders, your local team can avoid major pitfalls and hit the ground running.
Local Teams Freed Up to Make Decisions
We believe each local mission team should be responsible and have the authority to make big decisions that affect its own work. This means KM’s experienced leadership is there to help and guide you, but isn’t forcing its will on your local mission team about which methods to use. Local decision-making results naturally in mission methods and structures that just make sense. You'll quickly learn to love the freedom and the partnership for the gospel with your team and with other KM leaders.
Get on-the-field training in Europe with Mission Academy
Mission Academy exists to provide both theoretical AND practical training for real mission work, on location on the field. It's a 3 to 4 year program of study/training, designed for people who are very interested in being effective, and who don't necessarily demand a traditional form of theological/ministry education. Classroom courses are held in our offices in Germany for the first few months of each study year. Then, the rest of each year is spent on location, both learning and doing in a real-life mission setting, with input from experienced mentors and authentic international experiences.
