How can a Christian college student form evangelistic relationships?

Posted March 29, 2015

Initiated by: Doug Hanna

I am a student at a Christian college/seminary in a large city. How can I form evangelistic relationships in this new city? Everyone I know is a believer (either a student or a member from church). Besides off-campus employment, how can I discover and build friendships with non Christians? What has worked for you?

East Asia Missions

Posted January 05, 2015

Initiated by: Ed J

A place to network, share ideas and develop sending methodology that would impact this location for Christ. I would like to share effective methodology for short term missions for those that work with a Missionary and those that do not. Our church has made upwards of dozen trips and have learned enough to know there is plenty of ideas out there that would enhance our work. I would love to network and leverage our work in this area

How can we lead effective short-term mission teams even in difficult places

Posted September 23, 2014

Initiated by: Mission Whiteboard

How can our church be strategically involved around the world using short-term teams? We want to make a long-term impact so is there specific training we should offer? What are some best practices? Are there security concerns we should be aware of? How do we join or even help develop a long term strategy? Who should go on trips?

Posted September 23, 2014

Initiated by: Mission Whiteboard

We keep hearing about the global refugee crises that has been caused by wars and conflicts. Many refugees are being resettled in our own cities.  What are helpful ways we as a church can minister to refugees - in our city and in other places around the world?  Are their best practices? Can we find out who is being resettled in our city? How do we help with the huge refugee camps in the Middle East and Central Asia?

CREATING A LOVE SPACE FOR MISSIONS

Posted May 20, 2014

Initiated by: TOBBIAS NGALA

I live in Mombasa Kenya a gateway city with a great need to reach the unchurched and unreached community which is growing, at the moment the church is persecuted and in great danger, (look at news about mombasa and you will see what i mean) - I am suggesting that we go for the model of Loving your Enemy as a way to open up what i call the Love space so wide, to allow again the goodnews of Christ to find a place to be shared, this is based on the recent temptation by the church leaders to go for firearm licences.  Let me hear your thoughts on this; How do we create a Love space for the Gospel to be shared?

T4T and Church Planting

Posted April 03, 2014

Initiated by: William Dieckmann

We are using t4t as our small group multiplication process in a new church plant. South Caroliana, USA. Has anyone used t4t in church planting and seen generational group growth?  We have a dynamic Sunday Service as well.  So this is not a cell church plant.

Those we send out as cross-cultural members are still a part of our church body. How do we disciple, support, care for, and partner with them for health, longevity, and effectiveness?

Where do missionaries come from?

Posted March 06, 2014

Initiated by: Mission Whiteboard

Are missionaries found or are they proactively developed?  Shouldn't raising up and developing missionaries be a natural rhythm of local churches? How might local churches intentionally equip their members to live sent?

Bad theology = bad sending

Posted March 06, 2014

Initiated by: Mission Whiteboard

Why have churches abdicated their responsibility? Bad theology has led to the outsourcing of sending to agencies.  How does good theology affect the relationship between local churches, missionaries, and sending agencies?

How do we build relationships and share truth with Muslims?

Posted September 19, 2013

Initiated by: Mission Whiteboard

How do we rise above our fear of Muslims and learn to love them as Jesus has loved us?  How do we start conversations and find ways to share truth with them?  What are some ways to intentionally get to know Muslims personally?
