Directory of Ministries
Since 1989 the CareGivers Forum conference has brought together many ministries caring for vocational Christian workers and their families. They represent many types of resources for the pastor, pastoral family, church leaders, and missionaries. This resource directory lists ministries currently active in the network (attending the Forum in the last ten years) who meet basic criteria and have requested to be listed. (Forum attenders: find criteria here)
Depending on your background and experience, you may feel more comfortable with some organizations than with others. We suggest you visit their website and contact them directly to obtain other information that will help you in choosing the resources that are right for you. (See disclaimer below.)
