Muslim-Women-PrayingIs it, like for the apostle Paul, “your ambition to preach the gospel where Christ is not known?” (Rom 15:20) If so, this could be just the opportunity for you. World Outreach International is sending out “Alpha Mission Teams” to unreached people groups. AMT is a practical two-year missionary training programme for both single people and families. During this time you not only learn, but you actually do the work – adapt to a new culture, learn the language, reach out to lost people.

11) Train and Multiply Still Amazes me

TAM_LOGO_SQ_93x90George Patterson. To me, he’s like a myth, a legend, and a hero, all rolled up into one. He wrote these booklets as he trained a handful of would-be pastors. He asked them to use the booklets with others, introducing them to the gospel too, explaining how they need to start their own Jesus gatherings. Over time, he started hundreds of churches, most of whom he had never even visited. Why? Because his disciples were so well trained, they accomplished the impossible. Learn more at …

where you can still download all 64 of his discipleship booklets. Highly recommended.

5) Cat & Dog Theology Speaker Training, KY USA, December 11-13

cat and dogThere’s a joke about cats and dogs that conveys their differences perfectly: Dogs say, “You pet me, you feed me, you shelter me, you love me, you must be God.” Cats say, “You pet me, you feed me, you shelter me, you love me, I must be God.” Many in the church have embraced a self-centered “meology” vs. a passion for the glory of God. “Cat & Dog Theology” seeks to change that. Training to become a certified speaker happens in Nicholasville, KY, USA on December 11-13. Recently upgraded with a new “image-driven” approach, this presentation is excellent for missions speakers, mobilizers and Perspectives teachers (Lesson 2). Learn more at

12) “The Global Gospel,” book by Werner Mischke: Impact

Be watching for Werner Mischke’s new book, The Global Gospel. It will help you explore the biblical concepts of honor and shame, then apply them to cultures all over the world, again and again. This could end up very helpful in understanding cultures that are different from our own, especially as we seek to design ways and means of presenting the gospel in a contextually-accurate form. As a result, this would be a great backdrop reading for anyone crafting presentation materials for those who come from a different culture. See a partial manuscript at…
