Spiritually Prepared: Environmental Awareness Response

SPEAR Training is offered to those who go to dangerous places throughout the world to serve the Lord.  Missionaries are a perfect example of those who need risk mitigation and awareness training in order to safely serve while preaching the gospel message.  

While in the mission field, we are faced with countless dangers but we put our full and absolute faith in the Lord to provide for our every need.  Our Lord also wants us to go prepared.  Proverbs 22:3 states: "A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences."

Therefore, after many years of training U.S. military personnel to go to dangerous lands, we offer this same training to our brothers and sisters in Messiah.  It is our hope that everyone who needs this training will get the opportunity to receive it.  However, let us remember that it is the Armor of Elohim that is our true protection.   Our steps in preparedness are just a manifestation of the faith and trust that we place in Him.

The following are the general topics that will be covered in your typical 3-5 day Missionary Preparedness Course:
  • Psychological Considerations of Captivity
