- Decide who has the highest priority: family or ministry partners. YOU get to decide that. But don’t view your visit as a 50/50 split. Be clear about the primary reason for your trip, and schedule your time accordingly.
- Your ministry partners are as busy as you are over the holidays. Very few, if any, feel you need to see them every time you come to town.
- Consider inviting your partners to an open house. Then it becomes THEIR choice if they don’t see you.
- It might be worth a second trip. Consider a trip in a different month to visit your ministry partners.
Roger and Lynn have served with The Navigators since 1988. The first twenty four years were in Collegiate ministry, leading the campus work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, then with the leadership team of EDGE Corps. During those years they had the privilege of investing in hundreds of young leaders who are serving around the world.
Roger currently serves as the Director of Ministry Partner Development. The goal of this team is to encourage, empower and equip Navigator staff to fully fund their calling in ministry. For over 3,000 US Navigators serving around the world, seeing God’s faithfulness in their funding is one of the biggest challenges and greatest opportunities.
