The course asks you to make an investment of 8-12 hours of learning time over the 15-day period. The next classes meet…

5) How Do You Get Practical Training for a Media-Driven World?

11) Pick up Engaging Islam Weekend or Week-Long Seminar in Dearborn

Perhaps you’ve heard of the conference, “Engaging Islam.” Perhaps you’ve wondered what it is. Well, there’s never a better time to go find out. Check it out at…

 

www.engagingislam.org/events/2019/5/24/engaging-islam-weekend

 

All the details are there — dates, times, fees, the works. A lot of our workers have taken this course and it inevitably prompts the worker toward greater boldness and initiative to enter into spiritual conversations with those they meet in the Muslim world. Betty hurry and sign up though. The conference is just a month away.

11) Zúme Course Rolls out in Ninth Language: Telugu

Know anyone who speaks Telugu? It’s the third-most widely-spoken language of the Indian subcontinent (after Hindi and Bengali). It dominates Andhra Pradesh. And now it’s one of nine languages already available for Zúme, the web-driven course and in-life experience that helps you be a disciple worth reproducing. It also helps you learn how to make and multiply other disciples around you and around the world. To see Telugu (and all the other languages available so far), just click to…

 

www.ZumeProject.com

 

then click the drop-down arrow upper right (it probably defaults to English). Choose a language from that list that you recognize. If you don’t recognize any just yet, just hang around for a while. The development team at Zúme will be rolling out 31 others over the next year. And the wild thing is — Zúme is available to you free of charge because of the kindness of lots of donors who believe in the Great Commission.

10) Nations Course 2019 in Chiang Mai and Rotterdam

Last year’s participants said: “The Course shed light on the areas that were dark for me and through this course I got the last piece of my armor in place.” Another wrote, “I do not know how any missionary can do without it! Most helpful course I have ever attended.” The Nations Course is a six-week cross-cultural intensive. It exists to prepare people for effective cross-cultural ministry, and equip them to make disciples among least reached people groups. Organizers want to promote an ethos of life-long learning. Cross Cultural ministry is one of the most misunderstood ministries/occupations on the planet. Course leaders wish to avoid the mistakes of the past by providing experienced trainers, who will open people’s eyes to new ways of thinking, acting, and feeling when approaching different cultures.
