Mission Training International (MTI)
MTI's passion is to see cross-cultural messengers of God’s grace and their families experience effectiveness, longevity and a deep sense of satisfaction in their calling. For this reason, MTI provides character development training and debriefing on the issues that are very practical and highly relevant to thriving in missions. MTI believes that in order for training to be effective and long-lasting that it must be memorable, address character development and include the whole family. For this reason our program philosophy is uniquely community enhanced, family-friendly and strongly experiential – focusing on the heart issues that make or break those in missions.

Barnabas Zentrum is especially designed to strengthen the lives of Christian workers who are serving in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. While not being a facility to treat mental illness per se, the facility serves as an interdenominational personal and marital retreat center for pastors, missionaries and others in church and Para church staff positions. Without the confining elements of the clinical setting, the relaxed atmosphere of Barnabas Zentrum provides a place of solitude and confidentiality in which such issues as marital crisis, stress, burnout, staff/team relations, and interpersonal or vocational conflicts may be worked through. Therefore, the Barnabas program functions as a preventative for chronic problems whose occurrence would require long-term treatment.
Barnabas Zentrum is strongly committed to the importance of maintaining the strength and stability of Christian workers and their families in order that they may more effectively minister to others.
