There is still a little room in this conference in Norwich UK from 14-16 November. An international group of speakers and mission practitioners from a variety of mission agencies and experiences will be discussing the advantages and difficulties of cross-cultural mission, using only local resources and local languages.  It is felt that this drastically reduces the possibilities for unhealthy dependency and increases the sense of ownership.  Check up the website at…

1) Interactive workshop for arts & mission in TX and the UK

Arts for a Better Future (ABF) is a one-week workshop that trains participants to spark local, Scripture-infused creativity that moves communities toward the kingdom of God. The training content follows the 7-step process contained in Creating Local Arts Together: A Manual to Help Communities Reach Their Kingdom Goals (2013, William Carey Library). Participants will learn to apply this flexible model to an existing cultural context. They then develop plans to engage these principles for arts in mission with a community in which they work. The workshop is drenched in warm, artistic personal interaction with other people and God. ABF can be a help to missionaries with artistic gifts, cross-cultural ministry strategic planners, pastors, worship leaders, people interested in developing multicultural worship, and artists of all kinds.

11) MAF-LT Presents Oral Strategies Workshop

Over two-thirds of the world cannot, or will not, learn from reading. But stories open the road to their hearts. MAF-Learning Technologies offers Oral Strategies Workshops in many places around the world. However, each year they offer one in the US. This year it will take place in Boise, Idaho, June 4-8 2013. Students will learn to teach the same way Jesus taught. They will be able to tell fun, accurate Bible stories, lead interactive Bible studies, and equip short-term mission teams. The methods taught work particularly well with people groups who are preferred oral communicators, but even the highly literate find new insights. For more information or to register go to:

9) Crescent Project Offers Training in Islam

Don’t forget about Crescent Project’s Sahara Challenge…

https://www.crescentproject.org/sahara

The training is non-confrontational, uses much scripture, is informed by Islam itself, and is well-regarded by many. Also, you can actually see online videos of the training at…

http://www.crescentproject.tv/

Cool idea. There must be some way to register so you can watch the videos online (and not have to wait for DVD’s to come in the mail). This would be really helpful to overseas customers, living in sensitive situations. Although it didn’t look like the page was protected by SSL technology, one could use a VPN to address security and, presumably, view the entire training program via a distance-learning approach. Awesome.
