3) Don’t forget about Awana Clubs International

This past week, I was hearing great news from a volunteer with Awana Clubs. They’re on the web at…

http://www.Awana.org/GO

The GO Materials are all about developing a missional heart in children and families, and this is available free to anyone: homeschoolers, churches, camps, families, or any ministry with a heart to reach kids of the Gospel.

GO, or Global Outreach, gives families and churches tools to train kids to think beyond themselves and have a heart to get the gospel to their neighbor and to the kid on the other side of the world, always being on mission for the Gospel. Churches use it for missions VBS curriculum, weekly Sunday school missions curriculum, as well as youth camp material. It is all free downloadable content, including videos and various media that can be printed and used for visual aids
A great find!

8) See the “Entire Journey” to help Fathom People on the Run

They’re on the run… millions of them. Some are looking for a better home life. Others are escaping persecution, instability, and even war. Either way, they are displaced peoples — 60 million of them. Of all people, “84 Lumber” (and hardware store!), made it their one and only Superbowl ad. See the entire journey…

10) Get Equipped for Business as Mission

Are you running or planning to launch a company with a missional strategy? Are you a mission leader who needs to coach, train or lead others doing business as mission? If so the 3 week BAM Course is for you. The 10th annual course will run in Chiang Mai, Thailand from Feb 18th to Mar 10th, more info at:

Of course, if you can’t go in person, you can also take a loot at…
