Member Care Media, a ministry of international Christian broadcaster TWR which serves cross-cultural workers around the globe, has won a major award ...

MCM was been singled out by the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB*) to receive the 2016 International Strategic Partnerships Award.

Beate Kiebel of TWR Europe commented: “The ever-increasing opportunities in media such as radio, internet, mobile and social media allow us to reach people right where they are. I am excited about this ministry outreach, and NRB’s recognition is very much appreciated, valued and an encouragement to us all.”

Member Care Media is a ministry dedicated to supporting and serving cross cultural workers with content tailored to their specific situations and needs. It has been one of the first in the world to use media to encourage, enhance and enable those whose work takes them to difficult places.

Surveys conducted by the World Evangelical Alliance Missions Commission found that 71% of missionaries who leave the workforce do so for preventable reasons. The primary goal of MCM is to provide resources for in-country missionaries and leaders to target some of the causes of attrition at an earlier stage.

With the help of more than 70 well-known, professional care specialists, and in partnership with other organisations, MCM has developed content that incorporates a variety of perspectives as it addresses more than 60 primary issues related to these causes.

The NRB award recognises Member Care Media's partnership with indigenous ministries, sensitivity to cultural distinctives and the impact of its Christian outreach  to cross-cultural workers around the globe.
