Joseph Anderson has been home from the mission for eleven years. Since returning he has watched countless returned missionaries feel like a fish out of water when they get back. Because of this he created a free 90 day training course for any RM who wants to just watch his videos. You can watch them on his YouTube channel or find them on his website RMUniversity.co. On the website there are also worksheets to download every day that accompany the videos. This sets it apart from any other training out there.
About this project, Joseph said this:
“A few years back, I heard the story of Mark Mabry. If you are unfamiliar with his story, he is the photographer that created the reflections of Christ exhibit. He had talked about how he wanted to use the talents and gifts that he had been given in order to build the kingdom of God. As I reflected on this, it got me to thinking, “How is it that I can use my gifts and talents to further build the kingdom of God?”I pondered on this for a while.
“One day as I was playing guitar, an idea came to me so strongly of what I could do to build the kingdom of God. Over the past few years, there have been many RM’s coming home from their missions and falling away from the church. It was brought to my attention that the number of RM’s falling away was far too high! And it occurred to me that these RM’s would come home and often feel like a fish out of water. There lives had been planned for them since they were little kids and now they had many decisions and choices to make. It was during this time of figuring things out that many would fall away.
“For many years, there has always been a joke about creating an RMTC that taught RM’s how to return to regular life and still keep their spiritual depth that they gained on their mission. So as I was playing my guitar this powerful impression came that I should create one. For the past 14 years of my life I have studied personal development and have my own life, business and relationship coaching practice. I realized that many of these tools could be valuable to RM’s when they return, however most RM’s are broke and have no money. In the scriptures, it says that they did receive great learning because of their riches. I wanted to provide that learning to all RM’s in a convenient resource. So that being said, Welcome to RM University!
