Bridge the Gap!

Improving Communication Between Here and There

October, 2010

For every mission experience, challenges and questions are a constant companion. Successfully translating your mission experience requires the right attitude, the right tools and the training to create the right opportunities. In October’s webinar, join us as we discuss how to navigate those cross-cultural waters to reach the far shore, how to communicate effectively within your mission service and how to bring that experience home using simple communication tools. We’ll discuss social media, photography, video and connecting with home congregations as well as how to create relationships that keep communication alive.
