Testimonials

HANNAH’S STORY

When I first felt called to go overseas [as an Apprentice], OPEN connected me with an experienced B4T couple. This couple walked with me through the process of getting ready to go, helping me think through everything I needed to have in place before I left. They asked good, hard questions and made sure I was the right candidate for what I was about to do. They made sure that I was emotionally and spiritually ready to take on the challenge.

I was able to recognize my strengths and weaknesses as they guided me through this journey. They provided the information, recommendations, and learning opportunities I needed. Most importantly, they also traveled to my church to spend time with my church leaders and ensured that there was a strong, three-way connection between the church, me, and OPEN.  In the end, we were all in agreement that I was a good candidate, and that I had the support that I needed to do B4T effectively.

MARK’S STORY

Having an OPEN Mentor walk with us throughout our [Apprenticeship] journey has been by far the best gain that we’ve had in working with OPEN. Our mentors are absolutely incredible. We believe they are giving us better member care than people receive in a more traditional model, and this comes in the form of annual visits to our location. They also visited us at our home in the US. They connected with our fellowship leaders, which was an incredible connection. They send quarterly updates and reports to our home fellowship, which is an incredible part of that relationship in terms of accountability, and our local fellowship leaders really feel like they have a really good feel of the pulse of where we’re at.
