They are called, assessed, and sent as a unit.
But from here forward the focus shifts to the planter. Parakaleo, the Greek word for “coming alongside,” is dedicated to ensuring that both members of this team receive gospel-centered training and care.

We desire that every woman in church planting is recognized, trained and supported.
