What goes on at RCM's Headquarters (HQ)?

Anyone who has ever served in the military or in a large corporation knows, there is much more that goes on behind the scenes than meets the eye. Our Gospel-centered outreach necessitates a great deal of work that is not seen on the mission field. Without it, however, most of the work would be greatly affected. Certainly this is especially true in the educational programs and courses which are almost entirely generated by our headquarters staff. It is often more popular for donations to be designated for field needs, but perhaps this expose of the work of the HQ staff will encourage many to consider the importance of contributions and assistance in other ways, to RCM's HQ.
