Parents of Goers

For those who stay behind

Welcome to Parents of Goers

Having your child on the other side of the world can leave a hole in your family and an ache in your heart.

But you’re not alone. 

When your child decides to serve overseas, they become a Goer and you become a Stayer. Both roles are equally challenging. And both roles can be equally rewarding. Parents of Goers seeks to provide you, the Stayer, with Scripture-saturated resources to help you think rightly about your child’s vocation. We aim to be a community of like-hearted folks learning to support and cheer our kids from afar.  Join us as we learn to be great Stayers, and even better prayers, while we walk this road together. 


Are you the Parent of a Goer? Check out our blog full of resources for anyone who is sending loved ones abroad.


Learn about Tori’s new book “The Missionary Mama’s Survival Guide.”


Listen to the podcast to gain understanding of your role and experience camaraderie with like-hearted parents .
