Upcoming Training & Events
The Well Events
The Well provides a range of Trainings and Events including multi-day workshops, seminars and retreats designed for both cross-cultural workers and member care personnel. We host a full calendar of events every year and may also be available to speak at your conference, retreat or team meeting (contact us for inquiries).
Come, listen and interact with God and build community with others through the medium of Contemplative Collage. Collage is art for non-artists. Collage can get under the radar of our strong left-brained selves to our inner selves. Collage is communication through images, metaphors and symbols.
A great time for families with children ages 4-20 to reflect on the impact transitions have had in their lives! This is for families who have gone through or will go through transition. It doesn’t matter if you have just moved to Chiang Mai, if you have been here for a while, or if you are preparing to leave.
Our Debriefing workshop is a structured four day event designed to facilitate understanding and closure in the midst of transition. Individuals process what they have experienced in a myriad of ways. This includes constructing timelines, education, and verbal processing. We have found taking time to debrief helps enable individuals to move forward. Whether you have just come onto the field, or are preparing for a new adventure, we invite you to join us for four days of Christ focused reflecting, debriefing, and group activities.
In Meditative Art we still our hearts and engage in the creative process of writing, painting, making collage etc., all to make space for God to reveal His love and guidance in our lives. It is all about connecting with God, and spending time with Him. This process will also give us deeper knowledge about ourselves. There will be big periods of time spent in silence, including some of the meals, but there will also be time for sharing. The days will start and end with times of worship, focusing on Psalms 52:8.
Other Member Care Events

Member Care in a Disorderly World
Speakers & Workshop Leaders: Perry Bradford, Dr Lois Dodds, Dr Mark Toh, and many others
This is a one-week intensive course that is designed to increase awareness of clinical knowledge from the mental health professions for best practices in missionary care. Common clinical disorders in the missions context will be examined to develop skill to identify how disorders impact relational, spiritual, and psychological dynamics. Member Care Specialists will be exposed to how to assist workers and when a referral is necessary. Existing care resources will be explored with instruction on how to make an informed referral. Coaching skills will be taught in class to prepare students to do personal enrichment with cross-cultural workers as different modalities of care play a role in missionary care applications.
SYIS is designed to help Christian workers hone their interpersonal skills, thereby enabling them to work more effectively together in community and on the field.
Narramore Christian Foundation is hosting this seminar designed for cross-cultural workers—those who would like to develop their member care skills or develop member care within their context or for their company, pastors, administrators, team leaders, and those who counsel and listen to people—this intensive training offers practical psychological insights and counseling techniques with a strong integration of biblical and theological truth. Daily worship, individual consultation, networking, and daily breakout groups to apply and practice what is learned make this a rich and life-changing experience.
