Serving as Senders: Caring for Your Field Members – Joel Yoder

He gives a wealth of tips for the support team and what roles should be present, the duties they should perform, and the importance of every member on the team. Though serving the role of the sender isn't as glamorous and visible as the one who is sent, it is vital to the long-term effectiveness of the endeavor.
