2) Is This the Most Powerful 4-Minute Video You’ve Ever Seen?

That’s all I can say. How does a four-minute video pack so much emotion, so much power, and so much purpose? Somebody, somewhere, is a genius. How in the world.
If you’ve got four minutes to experience this power-packed video, then we have a feeling you’ll want to share it with someone else. Please do. If you don’t have four minutes, well, that’s just really… sad. : )

( is a tool that can be used to share the story of the gospel. See what you think. And Kyle, thanks for sharing this!)

4) Exactly what IS a “DBS” (Discovery Bible Study)?????????

Have you been wondering how to define a DBS? Have you heard the buzzword, but pondered exactly how it works? How does it impact lives? How is it best implemented? What kind of differences can we see when it is implemented well? We believe you’ll be thrilled when you hear these case studies and examples courtesy Engage Africa: Through disciple making movements, a video series produced by Tekmerion Productions, made possible by Final Command Ministries, in cooperation with CityTeam International. (Thanks to Jerry Trousdale for pointing us to this great resource.) Watch the entire 28-minute teaching video here:


Note that Final Command is still in talks with their production company, Tekmerion, about how to distribute this and other new films. As a result, we have to watch the video on the production website and, unfortunately, it could go away at any time. If you want to see it, better watch it soon.

14) The BackPage: Launching DMM’s is like Growing Bamboo

This past week, I’ve become fascinated with growing bamboo. First, I need to ask — if you’ve been around bamboo, is this video actually correct in its facts and figures?

Does it really take that long for the plant to sprout out of the ground? … and then, does it really grow that fast? A co-worker and teammate just bought me my first sprouts of bamboo. They’re sitting on my desk in my office. Will I be able to simulate all this rapid growth with the plant on my desk? (Yikes. I’ll have a FOREST of bamboo right there in my office!)

If all this is true, there are amazing parallels with launching a disciple making movement. In the beginning, we have to pour tons of time into just a few friends. It won’t feel very rapid. But if we do this correctly, then later, the movement might grow rapidly, if God blesses.

So please tell me — is this entire bamboo legend actually true? If so, please click “Comment” after the online “web” version of this item. Thanks in advance for any help.

7) The State of the World (Task Remaining) 2015

Global Frontier Missions has done a super job pulling together a whiteboard-style summary video of stats from Gordon Conwell Seminary’s Center for the Study of Global Christianity and the latest version of the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course.

State of the World / The Task Remaining from Global Frontier Missions on Vimeo.

This would be a great little video to include along with corresponding presentations at Perspectives. (What is it — Lesson 9?) We love these brief videos that tell the big picture. Please keep making more of these and pass along the links when you create or discover them. (Thanks to Jim, who told Tim, who told us. : ) )

12) Bruchko: For this Cross I’ll Kill You

It’s a timeless classic that helps us envision identifying with a native people group. If you haven’t read it, you probably should. It’s called “Bruchko: The Astonishing True Story of a 19-Year-Old American, His Capture by the Motilone Indians and His Adventures in Christianizing the Stone Age Tribe.” It tells about Bruce Olson. It just might change your life.


6) You’ve Seen the Book, but What about the Movie? (“In the House”)

wind in the house of islamNo doubt, you’ve seen the book (now in its 3rd printing), “A Wind in the House of Islam.”

But did you know that Paul, David and Jon (almost sounds like a singing group from England?!) have now turned the book into a DVD, “In the House of Islam DVD?” It includes 56-, 32-, and 17-minute versions, all on the same DVD, making it useful for a variety of contexts, including class room, home group, Sunday School, church service, etc. You’ll learn firsthand how God is at work in the world’s largest non-Christian religion (Islam) drawing hundreds of thousands of Muslims to new life in Jesus Christ. Don’t miss this opportunity to journey beyond the headlines and into the remote corners of the Great Commission, where God is at work… In The House of Islam!

4) I was Shocked at the Impact of this 4-minute Video

Yesterday I preached at a church on the south side of Indianapolis. I used, for the first time ever, a testimonial video in Arabic with English subtitles. In a word — It rocked. There were viewers of all ages… from teen to retired… and seemingly all were touched. The video is a simple testimony of a new believer, recounting what he formerly thought of Christianity. There are dozens of “I used to believe…” statements. The end is powerful. The impact even more so. It’s hard to go wrong with a new believer from North Africa. Use it at your next opportunity and you won’t go wrong.
