Thriving – not just surviving! When ITeams NL sends workers out it wants them to be well equipped to not just survive but to thrive in their location and in their ministry.

Part of this equipping is Access - three long weekends of live-in training. During this training time we explore with our new workers four areas: calling, competence, character and compatibility. It is a time for the workers to truly clarify their call from God into ministry and for them, and iTeams NL, to confirm a good compatibility with one another.

Other lessons include culture, communication, conflict resolution, team building, spiritual pathways, the character of God, language learning, dealing with change and healthy living. During Access there are also one-on-one times to have all your questions answered and advice given for the journey ahead.
