The Next Step is a North American professional association of missionary trainers committed to the continual improvement of pre-field and on-field missionary training. Association participants are usually associated with mission agencies, educational institutions (formal and non-formal), or churches, providing a broad representation of expertise and differing contexts.
The Next Step partnership envisions a quality of training and development that promotes and contributes to an emerging movement of spiritually alert and mature cross-cultural workers who effectively facilitate the birth and growth of authentic churches in every people group. Toward that end, Next Step seeks to facilitate networking among professional trainers, contribute to training improvement through sponsored projects, and sponsor the “National Missionary Training Forum”—an annual conference that develops a particular area of missionary training.
If you are a missionary trainer located in North America and interested in receiving e-mail updates about our annual conference or notices from other members, you are invited to register on this website.
