Organizational Summary

From Mission to Mission assists people in preparation and processing of their crosscultural, ministerial, and life transitions to continue their Christian call to mission.
From Mission to Mission, originally known as F.R.O.M., was started in 1980 by missioners who had served around the world and, upon returning “home,” found their re-entry to be the most difficult part of their experience. We believe that mission doesn’t end when you return to your home culture, whether from an overseas or domestic project, and we exist to support volunteers and missioners who serve as they transition through their re-entry.
From Mission to Mission has grown and adapted over the years to better serve the changing face of mission and to share our expertise in dealing with all kinds of transition, not just re-entry. From Mission to Mission supports all who respond to their call to mission, including lay people, priests, and religious who have served for a week or for decades, domestically or internationally.
