The Midwest Conference on Missionary Care is an annual event co-sponsored by Minnesota Renewal Center, Barnabas International and Transform Minnesota (formerly the Greater Minnesota Association of Evangelicals).
The aim of MC2 is to inform, inspire and educate the church – including laity, pastors, leaders, mission coordinators and mission committee members – in providing effective care to their overseas missionaries and missionary families. The event is held every February in local Twin Cities area churches. Attendees have come from around the upper Midwest and throughout the country. Speakers and workshop leaders include local church leaders, national mission leaders and missionary care professionals.

The 2015 Conference: Upholding the Whole Family
Each year MC2 provides plenary sessions and a broad base of workshops chosen to inspire and equip you to provide effective care for your missionaries. The central theme for MC2 2015, Upholding the Whole Family, reflects three realities as they relate to selecting, preparing, sending and caring for our missionaries.
- The first of these realities is that we not only send individuals, but we often send whole families to engage other cultures in the cause of Christ.
- The second is that it is incumbent upon us to serve not just the ones we send, but also the family members who are left behind when they go.
- The third reality is that our mission teams become families of their own, with all the systemic dynamics that make up family life.
As caregivers and friends of our missionaries, it is our responsibility to be well equipped, understanding their multi-faceted challenges, so that we might hold them up as they fulfill their calling to serve the Lord in cross-cultural engagement. We truly hope you will join us for our 2015 conference so that we might learn together.
