At the end of June, MCN will once again host its training for missionaries being sent into mission ministry sites in partnership with many international Lutheran church bodies around the globe. This summer not only will the MCN missionaries receive the training, but Lutheran Bible Translators missionaries will join as they also prepare for departure into their overseas appointments. Training is led by long-time experienced missionaries and international leaders who have held posts across the globe in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Each year MCN sends new missionaries to the field. Presently there are 15 individuals/teams in the field with several more being trained and sent this year. If you are interested in serving as an international missionary through a Lutheran organization, connect with MCN: https://missionofchrist.org.
