Here are some of our friends doing missions work and providing resources for missionaries and those aspiring to join a mission agency either short-term or long-term.
Ask A Missionary – Questions and answers regarding missions, support raising, how to select a mission agency, “Should I go to the field if I’m still single?,” and much more.
What we especially like is that you can ask questions and get answers from those in missions, those with many years on the field, and even from the General Directors of large mission agencies. Very comprehensive.
Perspectives.org – One class that has helped us immensely to understand our calling and mission as believers, over many years, has been “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement.” It helps you and your people understand God better, His heart, our calling, and gives fresh, new energy to your work for Him. Never has a class changed us and challenged us as much as this one class.
In the 15 sessions, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world remain today from different speakers each week to the readings grouped around the four themes of Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Perspectives is currently in over 200 locations each year around the USA with many more locations worldwide.
