Missionary Care Groups
What is a Missionary Care Group (MCG)? It is a small group of committed people who work together to care for their missionary in a variety of ways, striving to help meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. It is a group of people with whom the missionary can be open and honest, allowing them to see his/her needs and share his/her successes and challenges.
