1) Online Missionary Training Available —

M_Indonesia_Madurese_MF_AK_001-300x199Global Frontier Missions has been training missionaries to serve among unreached people groups for over 12 years. They started in Oaxaca, Mexico and now have a training base in Atlanta where they equip people while making disciples among refugee populations from over 50 countries. GFM also just launched an online version of their training program for those that live overseas. It is a great way to get pre-field training before heading abroad or to sharpen your skills if you are already overseas and want additional tools for ministry.

1) Achieve Full Funding in Record Time –

kingdom.come.trainingKingdom Come Training can train and coach you to full funding in a few months rather than a few years. It is all done over live, interactive videoconferencing which means you can get the training anywhere in the world with Internet access. Some faith ministry workers are getting their full funding without leaving their field location.

One recent participant wrote: “Together, the trainer and coach give such service that it is virtually impossible to fail if you do what they tell you, which, by the way, is a lot of fun! I have enjoyed this so much, would recommend it to anyone, and still can’t believe I am 100% supported in five months for a family of four.”

But do you know of any other such listings of relevant training for community development, either in CHE form or the new “Neighborhood Transformation” format for urban areas? If so, please click “comment” after the web version of this item and we’ll all be glad you did.

6) Best Training Materials for Short-term Trips

We’ve been using Round Trip at the church where I’m an elder. It’s pretty great at preparing short-term teams for mission trips. But, for a while, we seemed to have lost it, once it became unavailable at the Christianity Today site. Now, suddenly, it’s available again here…

So glad. For $20 bucks, you won’t find a better cross-cultural training curriculum (complete with videos). (Probably couldn’t find anything any better than this at 10 times the price.)

9) Training in Evangelism Among Muslims

Immerse yourself in this intensive course in Islam, its people and culture. Then, use what you learn in daily guided outreach opportunities with seasoned mentors. Manarah combines classroom training with daily apprentice-like opportunities to share with Muslims in homes and nearby parks. Taste Arab hospitality while learning how to bring light to these least-reached people.

Sounds fantastic.

10) Through the eyes of Vulnerable Mission

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…
