Departure Readiness Training

Departure Readiness Training is an invitation-only training for our pre-field missionaries that is held three times a year in March, July and November. This training focuses on:

  • Making the transition to the mission field
  • Major adjustments to living in another culture
  • Adapting to the existing ABWE field team


Prefielders must communicate with their ABWE training coach regarding the appropriate training date they should attend. Final approval will be granted by their coach in consultation with their Executive Director. The deadline for receiving approval to attend the Readiness Seminar is three weeks prior to the start of the seminar.


If you understand these expectations regarding the Departure Readiness Training participation and believe that you have met the requirements, please email your ABWE training coach, stating your interest in attending the Readiness Training.

If you are approved to attend the Readiness Training, you will receive a letter of invitation from your coach containing the online registration link. The registration deadline is two weeks prior to the start of the training.
