1) If You Missed Missio Nexus "Future," At Least Watch This (for free)

If you missed last month’s Missio Nexus “Future” conference, at least watch this one message from Andrew Brunson. Hear the testimony of this worker who was held captive for nearly two years in a Turkish prison. Hear his heart. At the end of everything he experienced, hear him conclude that Jesus is worth it all. Hear him say — we have to take risks. Hear him say that “we have to be willing to die. You probably won’t [die]. But at least you’ll be ready.” Thanks to much to Ted Esler and the Missio Nexus family for releasing this main session video to YouTube for all the world to hear.

2) Catch the Missio Nexus "Future" Conference via the Videos

Didn’t make it to Florida last week for the Missio Nexus “Future” conference? Did you make it, but Ed Stetzer talked too quickly and said too many important things for you to write everything down? There’s hope and help. It’s all located at…

Most sessions were recorded. All you have to do is join. Just listening to all these sessions is worth the price of admission. It was a fantastic conference loaded with tons of helpful material. You’ll be glad — even if you have to attend “virtually.” Thanks Missio Nexus!

7) New Video Invites Viewers to a Road Less Traveled

As Africa Inland Mission approaches 125 years of ministry among Africa’s unreached, the organization is excited to see God working in the lives of men and women called to join them in this ongoing work. Their recently released video, “An Extraordinary Call,” inspires those whom God is calling to find their place on that road less traveled. Brigada readers are invited to watch it here:

7) Are You Teaching About Honor/Shame? These Two Resources Will Help

Of course, it seems like everyone today is utilizing the 3D Gospel (book) by Jayson Georges to help us grapple with the meaning of cultures who focus on honor/shame as a central ethic.

 

honorshame.com/3d-gospel-50/

 

But have you considered using this video by PrayerCast along WITH the Georges book?

We think it would make a terrific tandem tool.

 

5) Last Year We Cited This Video on Unreached Peoples… It’s Good

We mentioned this video last year

( www.brigada.org/2018/08/26_24374 )

But you know… it seems even better in 2019. Would you have 4 minutes in your church to show this? What if every church in every country would make this video available to its members? How might this change the way we give to missions?

 

 

First, you have to watch it. Will you?

 

(By the way, thanks to Kelly and Michèle for bubbling this video back up in their last email update.)

 

9) Understanding the Strength of "Family" in Islam

Some say the strength of family is a downer for those who want to follow Jesus as Lord. Why? Because members of one’s family can actually be the most severe in persecuting those who want to accept Christ. They reportedly persecute because they feel the renegade believer is going to bring shame on their family name. Still others advocate that if we were to be able to figure out how to reach whole families, the strength of their decision for Christ might help them be lock-solid in following Him. What’s your take. For background, pray through this video on family from Prayercast:

3) These "GOer Groups" Videos Might Play Well in Peoria…

…and at your church, if you choose. They address some key questions:

Where to go, Choosing an agency, Finances and debt, “Church, parents, and relationships,” What to do now, On-Field realities, and Continuing on. The price is amazing. (They’re free to view online.) And because they come from the Center for Mission Mobilization, you can be assured that they have an equal footing for your agency as well as all others. Thanks, Center for Mission Mobilization!!!

10) Fun to Watch this "Disciple-Making Practices" Video…

…not only to make fun of the speaker, but also to realize that, when the video was made (Apr. 18, 2017), researchers were tracking between 100 to 300 disciple-making movements in the entire globe. The last we heard, that number had now swollen to something more than 1000 movements all around the world. Let’s give praise to God for these indicators of rapid and fervent growth, then let’s get busy and join them!
