About this title


Married in Mission is a guide for couples called to the complex yet fulfilling world of cross-cultural humanitarian work. With twenty-one interactive exercises concerning marriage and service, this handbook is a means for individuals to purposefully engage with their vocational roles as both spouses and missioners. Kenny has identified seven phases within an extended, international volunteer commitment: the pre-departure periods of (1) discernment and (2) preparation; the (3) beginning, (4) middle, and (5) end of the abroad experience itself; and finally, the post-assignment stages of (6) re-entry and (7) integration. Comprised of topics and conclusions based on anecdotal data gathered from over ninety married missioners, informed by a healthy blending of psychology and Catholic-Christian theology, and written in an informative yet accessible manner, Married in Mission is a comprehensive and necessary tool for all globally engaged couples.

About the Author:

Alexis C. Kenny is a Montana native gone rogue—geographically speaking. She attended the University of San Diego and has since graduated from Catholic Theological Union (CTU) with an MA in Intercultural Ministry. In a gap year before her final semesters at CTU, Alexis and her husband volunteered for thirteen months at an orphanage in rural Honduras. She is now a PsyD student in James Madison University’s Combined-Integrated Doctoral Program for Clinical and School Psychology.
