Long Term Missions
Mark and Susan work for Barnabas International and are pastoral counselors to global workers. Their work includes debriefings, counseling, spiritual direction, educational support services, and soul care. Their focus is with global workers in challenging contexts where there is a high need and few resources. This translates into the 10/40 window but also includes Eastern European countries.
Opportunities for care abound in this sector. Global workers are often under-resourced and working over capacity or are plagued by historical trauma or hurt that returns during times of high stress or are facing new growth opportunities in their faith and need companioning.
Mark and Susan are always looking for partnerships with individuals whose work and hearts are in such disciplines as spiritual direction, counseling, soul shepherding and the like. If you are interested in ways that you can be part of our team on a short term, mid-term or long term capacity, please contact them at
