9) Is Global Great Commission Network Gaining Traction?

The Global Great Commission Network is a cooperative follow-up ministry of the Tokyo 2010 Global Mission Consultation.  The purpose and role of the GGCN can be summarized in the following three values:

***  The Global Great Commission Network exists to broadly encourage collaboration and partnership.

***  The Global Great Commission Network exists to stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation.

***  The Global Great Commission Network exists not to compete with, but to serve and support other networks and ministries.

So my question is, is this network gaining traction at your church, agency or group? If so, please write a comment on our online web version. Thanks in advance for any feedback you can give.

14) TheBackPage: What’s Your Purpose in Life?

The members of the group, Casting Crowns, seem to have the answer to that question figured out, at least for their own lives, that is. Learn more about them at…

You’ve probably heard their tunes, but what you might NOT have heard is that, all the while they’ve been churning out the music, they’ve kept their jobs serving their local churches. The stuff they sing about is the stuff they’ve taught about in real youth group meetings and student home Bible studies. And if you’ve ever read Matthew 24, you know why they wrote, “Until the Whole World Hears.” Listen to the songwriter’s intro of it here…

Now listen to the whole song with new insight:

3) ILS Int’l Releases “Countries and Peoples of the World”

Think of it as a digital library for leaders with a global vision. Find the details at…

http://worldchristian.com/productdetails.php?product_id=33534

or get the whole fact sheet at…

http://worldchristian.com/download.php?id=204

With over 56,000 pages of information, you’ll find info on ministry strategies, poverty, hunger, HIV/AIDS, urbanization, sustainable development, literacy, world faiths, minorities, persecution, orality, the least reached, and much more. This library also includes the beginning of a Global Digital Atlas with over 160 high-resolution color maps. There’s even a mini-course to promote global awareness. This tool would also be great for a worker without fast internet, because it contains information on thousands of unreached peoples (the type you’d perhaps normally seek online). Either way, it’s a treasure chest worth grabbing.

5) Know any Missions-minded Artists Out There?

If so, you might want to steer them to “The Mission Minded Artist (MMA),” a missions sending agency for specifically for artists.  They are based in Atlanta, GA and have been serving since 2007 by taking music groups, including black Gospel choirs, overseas.  Their vision statement reads, “To see a culture influenced for Christ by artistic people.”  They are accomplishing this vision by, “Discipling artists to be mission-minded.” Learn more at…

3) Free Book from Desiring God about Reaching Unreached Peoples

Finish the Mission

Finish the Mission

Hats off to John Piper and Desiring God ministries for their willingness to give away such a great book as “Finish the Mission,” available at

http://www.desiringgod.org/resource-library/books/finish-the-mission

With authors like Louie Giglio, David Platt, and John Piper himself, we should have known it would be a winner. But then, of all things, they decide to give it away! I’m thinking — let’s make this a required book for all new Christians. :-) Seriously… please get it today. (And thanks to Kevin for suggesting it.)
