At Paracletos we have a genuine passion for helping missionaries thrive, both in their field of ministry and during times of transition and assignment.
Our team understands the challenges missionaries face, like:
- Discerning a calling
- Preparing for ministry
- Building a support network
- Maintaining good spiritual health
Dave and Irene Lewis have over 35 years of missionary experience, devoting 15 of those years to missionary care. Their missions background includes training, mobilizing, support, and indigenous church planting. Their passion for missionary care began when they were missionaries themselves, and encountered many of the difficulties that drive missionaries from their field of ministry. Through Paracletos, they help equip people for the ministry of caring for missionaries, and provide debrief and retreat opportunities at Baan Sabai Lodge and other locations. They received training in debriefing through MTI’s CODAR* program.
