Get the Ongoing Care You Need to Thrive in the Mission Field

No Missionary should ever lack the care and support they need.

Coaching & Mentoring

How it Works

Schedule Your Intro Call

Let’s have a no-pressure chat. We’ll get to know each other and determine if coaching may be a good fit.

Set Up Your First 3 Sessions

We’ll identify and address the core issues you’re facing in 3  confidential sessions. If we need ongoing sessions, we can schedule them.

Achieve Clarity and Encouragement

Whether you’re done in 3 sessions or want to continue to meet, you’ll leave encouraged and re-energized for your mission.


M from Missional Living has been coaching me for more than a year. It's been so important and crucial to meet with M (in person or online) and to learn from his wisdom and experience. As Psalms 145:4 says "One generation shall command your works to another" M is doing a great job having an impact on the generation of mine. In a post-communistic country like ours we don't really have a generation to look up to and learn from. I am very thankful for the relationship we have.

Viktor & Gabi

Our friends at Missional Living have been a tremendous help to us as we have worked through the leadership transition of our church in Ecuador, and in preparation for the next stage of our ministry in service to Ecuadorian pastors and local churches. Conversations with M and R have helped us to sharpen our spiritual focus and to think more clearly about our gifts and callings. I believe Missional Living offers valuable coaching resources to those of us who serve overseas whether we're on the field or on home assignment.

Common Challenges of Missionaries in the Field


Family issues back home


Parenting difficulties


Loneliness and isolation


Spiritual dryness




Interpersonal problems with team members




Family and marital conflict


Temptation to sin




Cultural integration

Problems like this are normal. It does not have to define you or upend your life and ministry.

Ongoing missionary coaching is the lifeline many people need to handle the challenges of full-time, international missions.
