Listen as Ann Hinrichs shares how God used her relationship with just one person over the years to transform her life and teach her about dependence.

Learning to love others long-term is a big part of missions and ministry. Sometimes that love can be easier said than done. In this week’s episode, Ann Hinrichs joins us again to talk about her new book, Just One, which is about her long friendship with a man in Belize. Through their friendship, Ann learned more about intercultural ministry and her friend came to know Jesus.

Ann also shares the importance of depending on God. Focusing on obedience is better than looking for results. Throughout the episode, she reminds us of God’s guidance and steadfast love. We look more like Him when we are willing to love another person for as long as the Lord leads.

How to Be a Mobilizer in the World of Missions, with Bevin Ginder – EM256 https://engagingmissions.com/em256-bevin-ginder-mobilizer/ Wed, 01 May 2019 10:00:00 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=29343 Missionary burnout is a real deal. And some never make it. That's why missions mobilizers like Bevin Ginder of GlobalCast Resources - those who equip, send, and sustain missionaries, are critically important.

Obeying Jesus’ commands is important if you want to be His disciple. One of those is to go into all the world and share the Good News. Bevin Ginder joins the show to talk about mobilization and its role in the Great Commission. For him, whenever he is working with other believers, he is discipling.

Growing up on the mission field, Bevin felt called to be a mobilizer through a dream, a concert, and a class. Now, he and his wife live in Cambodia and serve as leaders with Youth With a Mission (YWAM). His hope is to see churches learn how to send out missionaries and join in God’s work all over the world.

Gregory (pen name), a missionary, businessman, trainer, and pastor in Cyprus who cares deeply about reaching his Muslim neighbors.

When the Church is obeying Jesus, communities and neighborhoods become better. Our guest, Gregory (pseudonym), shares about his ministry in Cyprus, which includes a church, a coffee shop, and a ministry training school. He cares deeply about sharing the Gospel to the Muslim world.

Over the last few years, Gregory has co-led a church in Cyprus and trained students at Exile Ministry Training. Part of that training includes making and selling coffee and wine in the community. This allows students to learn about business and to reach out to the community. Gregory talks about his thankfulness for God’s faithfulness and His willingness to use him in Cyprus.

A crisis of faith led him around the world and back to God in Thailand. He's been planting churches ever since.
Marcus Rose, Church Planter in Berlin

Growing up in East Germany, Marcus Rose saw Jesus work in his family and in the country. When he was fifteen, he felt a call to ministry while Germany was still divided by the wall. Four years later, Marcus and other believers went to schools around town to share the Gospel to people.

As Germany changed, Marcus experienced a crisis of faith. He wasn’t sure how to keep following God’s call. Eventually, in Thailand, he re-committed his life to God.

Since then, Marcus has been planting house churches and discipling believers in Germany and across Europe. He sees discipleship as an important part of ministry. He hopes to grow in boldness as he continues to obey Jesus and His call.

After working in Turkey for four years, Aaron and his family moved back to the States. He now wants to see the Church equip and encourage Christians to share the Good News with their neighbors.

David Kauffman and James Harvey disciple and train leaders to expand the Global Church through multiplication. In this interview they share encouragement and insights into discipleship and God's heart. I'm excited to share James Harvey and David Kaufmann with you today. Together, they lead City Church Network.
City Church Network focuses on starting small churches within unreached and unengaged people groups. Then, they invest in helping those churches multiply by planting more churches.

Life in Ministry
Both David and James start their week with a Sabbath to rest and to focus on prayer, worship, and family. While they are committed to being out in the community, they are also committed to their wives and children.
David orders his days by spending the mornings with his wife and children. Then, in the afternoons and evenings he's in the community, working with 2-3 leaders per day. When they meet, they answer 4 simple questions.
James mentioned that he uses a calendar tool that helps him break his days and weeks into 2-3 hour blocks. He then fills those blocks with the specific things he wants to do. Further, he tends to focus entire days on specific areas of ministry.

* Mondays are his Sabbath
* Tuesdays are focused on Apostolic things
* Wednesdays through Fridays are flexible with meetings, prayer walking, and office time
* Saturdays find him out in the field with house church leaders
* Sundays are when he opens his home for a church meeting and then in the afternoon he'll be out in the community meeting people and preparing for the next week

Key Scripture
But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

Jeremiah 29:7

Seek the welfare of the city… – Jeremiah 29:7

Leadership is influence – John Maxwell

The difference between a leadership and a follower is more than knowledge or perspective. It's that a leader intentionally tries to influence others towards a specific vision or set of tasks.
Challenge
David shared the story of how he moved to Nashville to take a specific position at a church. But by the time he'd arrived, that church had merged with another church and the position had been taken by another pastor. He discovered that he'd been brought in as the “backup player.”
By walking through that time taught him one really big lesson.

Dr. Patterson is the originator of the Church Planting Multiplication movement. He's an innovator in discipleship and church planting. Many have been effective using the methods he teaches.
You might recognize that both Sean Steckbeck and Jay Judson referenced some of the principles that he teaches. In fact, it was Jay who connected me to Dr. Patterson.
I’m excited about this interview because I suspect God is up to something.

George started out as a traditional missionary. After Bible school, he went to Honduras to teach in a Bible institute. It was during that time that an experience with one of the pastors showed him teaching correct doctrine wasn't enough.
That experience led him to look more closely at how Jesus and the apostles trained disciples.
Key Scriptures
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.

2 Timothy 2:2
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew [28:18]-20
The 7 Commands of Christ

* Repenting (involves faith, the Holy Spirit, being born again)
* Being Baptized
* Observing Lord’s Supper
* Love
* Giving
* Prayer
* Making Disciples (in general)

Two Life-Changing Experiences
George shared two more of the experiences God used to shape his life. One involved teaching at a Bible institute, where he realized his lesson was not relevant to his students. The other involved a discussion about baptism and drunkenness.
Challenge
One of the biggest challenges George faced was people proselytizing from other churches. They didn't evangelize themselves. Instead, they would follow and look for things that were wrong. When they found something they would begin criticizing and creating division.
How George and the other leaders responded was very interesting. And very effective.
Current Ministry
George's current work excites him. He's helping established churches create what he calls a Second Track. These Second Tracks provide a place for people who are frustrated and passive to step into ministry. Yet it gives grace and flexibility for the established church to function the way it does.

It's exciting that missions can take so many different forms. There are opportunities to teach, to preach, to build, to love, and to encourage. Really, if God calls, there's something for everybody.

Kurt Coble is uniquely talented and called to pour into worship leaders and he's grown it far beyond his own ability. Through World Music Mission, Kurt matches the needs of worship leaders around the world with the skills and talents of other musicians, technicians, and worship leaders.
He travels widely within North America, sharing the stories of what God is doing. While he's traveling, he also gets to see the excitement of revelation as musicians catch the vision for what God is doing around the world.

Life in Ministry
Kurt's Christian heritage spans a wide variety of cultures and styles. He sees the value of other cultures and the beauty of their music. He's traveled to Spain and Mexico City but his experience is much wider than that.
Kurt enjoys living in Nashville, Tennessee. Because there are so many musicians, producers, and engineers, there are many opportunities. He spends much of his time traveling. While he's on the road, he's able to share what he knows and inspire others to do the same.
Key Scripture
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

Revelation 7:9
Challenge
Of course, every day can be challenging but one of the most focused challenges has been funding the ministry. Kurt had hoped to run various businesses rather than raising funds through donations. Along the way, there were several difficult experiences.
Revelation
While Kurt was taking a class at Williamson Christian College, God began stirring some things in his heart. The idea of being accountable for all the things that God brought into his life challenged him. About the same time, Brent Cundall was experiencing some similar stirrings. That's what led them to co-found World Music Mission.
Current Ministry
Kurt's excited that it seems like he's on the tip of something big and he's expecting to see God move powerfully. He's meeting lots of people and is able to see them catch the fire and hear the ideas of what they can do to grow worship around the world.
Significance in the Marketplace
Kurt has several suggestions for how we can effectively live our faith in the workplace.

EM028: Worship Ministry in Latvia with Geoff and Breanna Butterworth https://engagingmissions.com/em028-worship-ministry-latvia-geoff-breanna-butterworth/ Wed, 01 Oct 2014 11:42:00 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=1346 Geoff and Breanna Butterworth encourage you to find out where God wants you and go. They live in Nashville, Tennessee and recently ministered to worship leaders in Latvia by teaching, encouraging, and experiencing God. latvia, ukraine, worship, worship leader, guyon This week is a real treat; We have Geoff and Breanna Butterworth with us. You might not know them but I've been friends with them for some time and I'm so happy to hear about what God has been doing in their lives.

Photo credit: Benjamin McCain
Geoff and Breanna live in Nashville, Tennessee and both work in the marketplace. Breanna is a visual artist and Geoff is a songwriter, worship leader, and recording engineer. But that's not all. God's called them to go to places that can't afford them, leading worship and encouraging the worship leaders they find when they arrive.
That's exactly how it was on their recent trip to Latvia with Paradigm Worship International. As you listen, I believe you'll be encouraged and challenged at the same time.

Key Scripture
Geoff spends time in private worship. One day this scripture really stood out. As he prayed, he began crying out for this generation.
It's become his personal mission statement and the focus for the entire band. They are always asking themselves if what they're doing will call a generation to seek God's face.

Challenge
During their preparation for the trip to Latvia, Breanna lost her father unexpectedly. It was a really difficult time for her and she kept asking herself a question.
As she prayed about this, God began to show her what He does to repair the broken pieces. That pointed her to a Japanese art form called Kintsugi. In this art form, the artist does something specific to repair broken pottery. The point of the way it's repaired is to bring emphasis to the parts that are mended. In the end, the piece is believed to be more beautiful because of how the broken pieces are put back together.
Note: This reminded me of Isaiah 61:3.
Revelation
For Geoff and Breanna, God's revelation has been a process rather than a moment. Over the years He's showed them that they need to keep things as simple as possible.
As artists and ministers, there can be so many things to keep track of. It's easy to be distracted and to make things more complex – to focus on the minutia rather than the big picture.
God has been showing them that if they are obedient and diligent, He'll take care of the details.
Current Ministry
God has called Geoff and Breanna to minister in the “uncommon” places – often, places that can't afford them. They're finding that when they follow, the harvest is ripe.
In their recent trip to Latvia, what God did encouraged them. They are excited about the connections they now have with God's ...]]>

Amy Learn's journey starts in Iowa, stops off in Washington D.C., and now has her in Cambodia. She's working with Iris, International, and has learned that everyone needs love. Her mission is to be that love for them. Amy Learn was on a path with her life. Leaving a farm in Iowa to attend school in Minnesota led her to the East Coast of the United States while her twin sister went West. But her journey didn't end there.

Now she's working with Iris, Cambodia in Phnom Penh. Their focus is helping stop abuse and trafficking of young boys.
They partner with other non-profits in the area and build relationships. They also help connect children with the education that could break the cycle of poverty. And they minister the love of Jesus to the women who work in the bars.

Life in Ministry
Amy said that living in Phnom Penh is similar to living in a city in the US. It's not exactly the same, though. The traffic is crazy but the people are open; you can build a relationship with a smile.
Key Scripture
I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!

Psalm 40:1-3
Challenge
Helping pioneer the base in Cambodia has been challenging. It's hard to be patient – to go low and slow. And it's especially difficult to develop relationships without speaking the language.
However, one Halloween, during a time of worship, Amy felt like it was time for the team to go out and minister. They planned to go to a bar they'd been to before but it was full. So, instead, God directed them to another place.
There, Amy connected with a lady who had prayed for help that morning.
Revelation
Current Ministry
The story Amy shared was how they were able to connect two girls from a poor family with an organization who can give them the education their family can't afford.

Pavo Ivanov is a missionary living in the US who is originally from Eastern Europe who's traveled shared that the face of world missions has changed.

Amazing things!
Get ready to hold on for the ride!
Join us this week as Pavo Ivanov (pen name for security reasons) shares the grace of God in his life and his 13 years of experience in missions.
Right now Pavo is in a US city and is the program director for City Church Network. They make disciples among unreached and unengaged people groups. Their focus is on training individual disciples to make more disciples.
I learned a lot in just a few short minutes from Pavo and I think you'll experience the same.

Key Scripture
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Romans [1:16]
Challenge
There was a time when Pavo and his family were just getting started in ministry and were going on an outreach. They didn't have the funds to cover the trip but someone loaned it to them. When they returned, God provided all they needed and more in a surprising way.
Revelation
When Pavo was on an outreach in the Middle East, God revealed something to him as he was studying Genesis.
And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.

Genesis [17:20]
When God reminded him that He'd blessed Ishmael and his descendants, Pavo's heart opened up to the Arabs and the Muslims. He reminds us that it's easy for our hearts to become hardened but that's not God's plan.
Current Ministry
Pavo is living in a US city, surrounded by the Nations of the world. There are ministry opportunities all around but it's not that the face of world missions is changing.
We have a unique chance to minister when they come here that we wouldn’t have if we visited them in their home countries. With today’s communication, what we share here will spread to family friends.
Significance in the Marketplace
We must wrestle with the ideas of the Levitical Priesthood and the idea of being a Kingdom of Priests. If we are present, the people around us are not among those who lack access to the Gospel. They have access to the Gospel because we are there.
A Little About City Church Network
Like it or not, there is segregation, even in our cities. Cultural and religious barriers make it hard to engage unreached people. The question is, how can we reach them all?
City Church Network engages international people with the Gospel. They look for people who are already have a cultural heritage and are open to the Gospel and begin discipling them. They encourage them to share, to start house churches,]]> Bryan Entzminger clean 32:47 1308 EM025: Focus on People with Chris Morgan https://engagingmissions.com/em025-focus-people-chris-morgan/ Wed, 10 Sep 2014 11:00:45 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=1278 During his two years of working with young people in South Africa, Chris Morgan learned about cultural differences and effective ministry and he saw God's provision in an amazing way.

During his two years of working with young people in South Africa, Chris Morgan learned about cultural differences and effective ministry and he saw God's provision in an amazing way. You'll be inspired as you listen. In 2010, Chris Morgan finally landed what he thought was his dream job. Little did he know that God was going to send him to South Africa for two years to work with children in elementary and high school.
But, as God led him, he joined up with Scripture Union in Pietermaritzburg. While he was there, God revealed some amazing things to him and showed that He was faithful in everything, including Chris's financial situation.
It was during his time at Pietermaritzburg that Chris met his wife and worked with Garland Sam, who was a previous guest on the show. In fact, it was Chris who first introduced me to Garland.

Life in Ministry
During Chris's time in South Africa, he worked with Scripture Union. In addition to summer camp programs and VBS, they also ministered in public schools. They were able to offer courses on “good citizenship,” covering topics such as morality, peer pressure, values, and sex education.
Then, with the permission of the class, they could also share Scripture and Christ-based learning.
Chris said that, while he's an introvert, he would gladly dress up like a pink buffalo if it would help him share the Gospel with children. I appreciate that (and I'd kind of like to see it).
Key Scripture
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.

Hebrews 12:1-3
Challenge
Chris, like many missionaries, was supported entirely by donations. While his support was sufficient for his normal needs, God really showed up when a medical problem started costing some significant money.
God gave Chris some really specific instructions and it was amazing how it all worked out.
Revelation
Chris nearly fell victim to “self-deception in leadership” until he realized one specific thing while he was coordinating groups for a VBS with the Salvation Army Children's Home. It was during that time that he realized that his “American” perspective could be a real liability and that everyone around him (and “under” his leadership) was more qualified than he because of one thing.

EM024: Insights from a Teacher in a Thailand Coffee Shop with Samara Murtaugh https://engagingmissions.com/em024-insights-teacher-thailand-coffee-shop-samara-murtaugh/ Wed, 03 Sep 2014 11:00:50 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=1231 Samara Murtaugh has been teaching English in Thailand for two years. In that time, she's come to love her students and has seen both heartbreak and breakthrough. Listen as she shares what she's learned. Samara Murtaugh has been teaching English in Thailand for two years. In that time, she's come to love her students and has seen both heartbreak and breakthrough. Listen as she shares what she's learned. This week's guest is Samara Murtaugh I connected with her through Paul Yoder of Donor Elf and it’s great to be able to talk with her.
Samara is originally from the US but is currently teaching 1st grade in Thailand. While that may not seem like a mission to some, it’s a great opportunity to get to know people on their own turf. And it’s an amazing opportunity to share the love of Jesus with people.
As you listen, I believe you'll be challenged by what she shares and inspired by her enthusiasm.

Life in Ministry
Prior to leaving for Thailand, Samara studied art and never really considered being a teacher. Now, about two years into her time in Thailand, she is heavily involved in ministering to young children in a lower-income part of town. Many of the students come from families in the mountains and would not have the same education opportunities if the school was not there.
She lives about twenty-five minutes outside of Chiang Mai city in a house with several other people. Most everything they need is within walking distance and most “comforts” are available one motorbike ride into the city.
Key Scripture
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:6-8
Challenge
After Samara had been at School of Promise for only a couple of months, two of the students had to relocate and were unable to find suitable housing. Because they needed a place to stay, they lived in the same house as Samara for over ten months. But then things took a surprising turn.
Revelation
Samara's call and commitment to her time in Thailand is to be a church planter. Not in the sense of creating congregations and buildings but by raising up believers and discipling them.
Since so much of her time is taken by her job as a teacher, it can sometimes be hard to reconcile the calling on her life with how much time she spends with children. But God reminded her of something.
In our chat, she shared the story of a time when that investment started to pay off. And what she shared reminded me of the time I spent talking with Jay Judson and Rich Frazer.
Current Ministry
One exciting change has been a recently formed small group for teenage girls. They have seen remarkable openness and vulnerability among the girls, which is very uncommon in Thai culture.
Significance in the Marketplace
Take the opportunity to offer prayer to people who are sick or in need. It's uncomfortable but it can really change things.

EM023: Next Stop, Belfate Honduras with Jordan Boom https://engagingmissions.com/em023-next-stop-belfate-honduras-jordan-boom/ Wed, 27 Aug 2014 11:00:36 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=1187 While Jordan Boom was on a short-term missions trip to Honduras, God began working on her heart. He’s called her to take a year to go help at The Cornerstone Foundation. She’ll be working with Dr. Jeff McKenney and the rest of the team. Jordan Boom is a videographer who is moving from the US to Honduras for a year. With just a few days left in the US, she shared what God has done in the past few months. If you're worried about money, you want to hear her story. While Jordan Boom was on a short-term missions trip to Honduras, God began working on her heart. He’s called her to take a year to go help at The Cornerstone Foundation. She’ll be working with Dr. Jeff McKenney and the rest of the team.
As you might have gathered, though, she’s currently in the US, raising support. In fact, she'll be leaving just a few days after this is published.

Life in Ministry
The main ministry of The Cornerstone Foundation is a hospital but it's so much more than that. In an effort to glorify God and serve the community around them, they also operate a bilingual school, a children's home, and are involved in an agricultural ministry.
When Jordan arrives in Belfate, Honduras she'll be involved in producing promotional videos as well as training videos for the hospital there. However, like the rest of the staff, she'll be wearing multiple hats; she'll serve in multiple areas.
She's really looking forward to seeing how God stretches her into new areas of ministry.
Key Scripture
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2
Jordan mentioned that it's common to return from a short-term trip refreshed but it was different knowing that she was going back for a year. She knew that she would need to start serving more where she was. To do that, she changed where she was living and began the practice of laying aside her desires so that God could use her to serve others.
Challenge
Preparing for this change, the process of renewing her mind has been challenging for Jordan. While we might all long for that immediate, easy change, that's not what it's been like. It's been a daily process of refocusing on Jesus.
As she's been walking through this time, failure made her feel bad but one day she opened her devotional and God's direction for her was clear.
DON'T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF
I bring good even out of your mistakes. Your failures can be a source of blessing, humbling you and giving you empathy for others in their weaknesses. Best of all, failure highlights your dependence on me.
That reminded me of something Brent and Temple Cundall shared in their interview.
Revelation
It's normal to worry about the fundraising process but Jordan knew that God would provide. Even so, it was tough for her to not worry, especially about some specific bills that needed to be paid.
What she didn't know, though, was that a simple Human Resources mistake was God's savings account for her to take care of those bills completely, extravagantly, with more left over.
Current Ministry
Jordan is really excited because when she goes to Honduras, she doesn't fully know what she'll be doing. She knows that she'll be involved in video production. Beyond that, as the team gets to know her skills and abilities, they will be finding new areas for her to serve.
Significance in the Marketplace
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Caleb Suko and his family are returning to Ukraine after ten months back in the US. Discover how God called them to Ukraine, how they prioritize ministry opportunities, and distance learning in Russian-speaking countries. Caleb Suko and his family are missionaries to Ukraine. Right how they’re in the US, preparing to return in just a few weeks. In spite of all the fighting and challenges, they feel like God would have them return.
He’s also a podcaster, a blogger, and the vice president of Church Ministries Institute. In fact, I was first introduced to Caleb through his blog at SukoFamily.org and his podcast – Now is the Time. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have noticed that I’ve shared a few of his posts and episodes.
I appreciate his honesty and his perspective. I think there’s a lot that Caleb can offer us today and it’s my hope that our conversation will inspire and challenge you and me. And that we’ll walk away with some understanding of how we can apply what he’s learned wherever God has called us.
I'd also like to mention that he just released a book on amazon called “What if… How to Kill Worry and Anxiety Before They Kill You!”
Life in Ministry
Caleb and his family minister in the region of Odessa, Ukraine. They are heavily involved with the local church, minister to other churches in the region, provide support for other missionaries, and provide training in missions and evangelism.
He typically walks about 2.5 km (1.5 miles) to and from work every day. He spends 3-4 days a week in the ministry's office and the other 1-2 days working in their local church. On the weekends, he often ministers in their church or in other churches in the region.
Key Scripture
Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Challenge
As they Caleb was finishing up seminary and they were preparing to leave, their son was diagnosed with cancer. It was a really difficult time for them but through it all, they saw God's faithfulness and were able to share the hope they had with others.

Revelation
Rather than a moment of revelation that Caleb and his family had to begin to walk out, they discovered that God revealed His plan to them through what they'd already begun.
While they were still seeking God's will and direction, they began ministering while they were visiting Caleb's wife's parents in Ukraine. They were just ministering while they were there, and considered it training. They had no idea that they were already laying the groundwork for God's call in their lives.
As they prayed about it, they realized that it was both practical and that God had given them the desire to step into that ministry.
Current Ministry
When they return, Caleb plans to focus on two key initiatives. The first is to develop a distance-learning plan for the Russian-speaking population. Because of the geography, and also the political and religious climate of some of they countries, traditional ministry education isn't possible for some people.
Second, they hope to be able to help some of the refugees, displaced by the war in Ukraine.
I asked Caleb how he prioritizes and chooses what to do, with so many ministry opportunities available. His answer applies to missions, business, and life in general.
It's critical to have a clear vision for your ministry. At first, you can say “yes” to many things. But later, it's easy to become inundated and overwhelmed by the sheer number of opportunities. At that point, you have to be able to say “no” to some thing...]]>

Erin Paul is a 20-year-old college student who is investing her life in cross-cultural missions at home and abroad. She ministers in the US during the school year and takes short-term mission trips while on school breaks.
I was first introduced to Erin when she spoke at our church a few weeks ago. She felt called to go on a mission trip to Kenya along with a group from our church and shared about her experiences for a few minutes.
While she's in the US, Erin ministers as an intern with Community Servants, a local ministry that partners with the Wherry Housing cooperative to provide low-income housing as well as a wide range of educational opportunities for children and adults.
 

 
Key Scripture
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

Acts [20:24]
Challenge
This past Christmas break, Erin spent some time in a refugee camp in Thailand. Because of some things that changed, she was the only English-speaker there. She faced some challenges that really made her depend on God.
Revelation
On a mission trip to Northern Thailand, Erin saw what life was like for many of the people she ministers to through Community Servants in Smyrna, TN. That experience really changed her perspective and how she approaches ministry to the Karen people from Burma (Myanmar).
She is now very intentional with forming relationships and looking for discipleship opportunities.
Current Ministry
In a couple of weeks, Erin will begin teaching an English class for adults. She has a heart for education and is really looking forward to meeting the new students as well as reconnecting with returning students.

EM019: Missions and Discipleship Through Performing Arts with Seth Brooks https://engagingmissions.com/em019-missions-discipleship-performing-arts-seth-brooks/ Wed, 30 Jul 2014 11:00:10 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=1031 Two years ago Seth Brooks left Nashville, TN to join YWAM in Perth, Australia. Since that time he's launched a ministry and helped create an entirely new Discipleship Training School. Two years ago Seth Brooks left Nashville, TN to join YWAM in Perth, Australia. Since that time he's launched a ministry and helped create an entirely new Discipleship Training School. I’m really excited to have Seth Brooks with me today. This has been a long-awaited interview because Seth and I started talking about this months ago. It’s also a very special interview because Seth is sitting right in front of me in the studio. We’re NOT connected over Skype.
For the last couple of years, Seth has been on staff with Youth with a Mission in Perth Australia. He’s traveled to several countries and, most recently, led the first ever Performing Arts Discipleship Training School.
Life in Ministry
Unlike some missionaries, Seth's life is somewhat itinerant. While he's in Perth, he lives on a base with 250 to 300 other people. They are involved in daily worship and service ministries. As part of his involvement with the Performing Arts Discipleship Training School (PADTS), he helps students complete their applications and file for necessary paperwork.
However, like many of us, some of his ministry involves short-term travel. Most recently, he led the PADTS team on a three-month outreach to India.
Key Scripture
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,

because the Lord has anointed me

to proclaim good news to the poor.

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim freedom for the captives

and release from darkness for the prisoners,

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor

and the day of vengeance of our God,

to comfort all who mourn,

and provide for those who grieve in Zion—

to bestow on them a crown of beauty

instead of ashes,

the oil of joy

instead of mourning,

and a garment of praise

instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the Lord

for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins

and restore the places long devastated;

they will renew the ruined cities

that have been devastated for generations.
Isaiah 61:1-4
Challenge
While on the PADTS outreach, Seth ran into some pretty significant health challenges. He'd overextended himself and his health was suffering – to the point that he took days off to rest while his team ministered without him.
Note: That reminded me of what Paul Yoder shared during his interview.
Revelation
A few years ago Seth was 26, living at home with his parents, and working a dead-end job. During that time he really sought God's will for his life and ministry. True to form, God spoke to Seth, but in a surprising way.
Current Ministry
Seth is very excited about how well the Performing Arts Discipleship Training School went. Because of this breakthrough, they are planning additional schools and outreaches using this model.
Significance in the Marketplace
Level Up
Seth mentioned that it can be really exciting for a missionary to hear back from their supporters and partners. Just knowing that they're paying attention and are praying can be really encouraging.

EM018: Bible-Based Environmental Education in Kenya with Curt Bryson https://engagingmissions.com/em018-bible-based-environmental-education-kenya-curt-bryson/ Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:00:24 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=994 Returning from his first two years in Kenya, Curt Bryson shares some of the challenges and victories he's seen. Along the way, he also shares how God has led him to impact whole families by investing generationally in education. Returning from his first two years in Kenya, Curt Bryson shares some of the challenges and victories he's seen. Along the way, he also shares how God has led him to impact whole families by investing generationally in education. I'm really excited to bring you Curt Bryson today. Curt is a former roommate of mine, a good friend of mine, and he was able to join me in the studio.
He's been in Kenya for the past two years and is planning to return in a few months. Over the last two years he's been working with Suba Environmental Education of Kenya (S.E.E.K), which was founded by Don and Nancy Richards. With his involvement in S.E.E.K. he's been able to offer training programs in schools, minister to widows and orphans, and has started a few things that we discussed in this interview.

Life in Ministry
Curt shared that his life in ministry isn't all that different from having a job. In fact, he has a job – ministering at S.E.E.K. He teaches environmental studies in schools every day and leads Bible studies. He has days off and regular work hours just like the rest of us. It's just that his work is a little different.

Key Scripture
Curt said that the entire time he's been in Kenya, this scripture has guided his perspective and his actions. When times are tough or when things seem to be going well, he remembers Christ and Him crucified.
Challenge
For Curt, one of the most difficult things he went through was his transition during the first month. During that time, he had a hard time because he was accustomed to being surrounded by friends and family but went to Kenya alone. The cultural and language differences were made it hard for him to connect at first and he instantly realized he no longer had the support he used to enjoy.
During that time he had to focus on his time alone with God. Incidentally, that also shaped how he approached challenges during the remainder of his time there.
Revelation
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James [5:16]
During on a ministry trip to one of the villages, Curt felt like the Holy Spirit led him to focus on the “prayer of a righteous man availeth much” part of James [5:16]. Because of that, he took the opportunity to pray for a pregnant mother, which led to the story he shared.
Current Ministry
Curt has a heart to help students in Kenya who are unable to afford education. Unlike the US and many nations where high school education is compulsory, it is expensive for Kenyans to continue their education. So much that in the county where he lives, only 11% of children attend high school.
And, without that education, most are destined to a life of driving a motorcycle, fishing on Lake Victoria, or prostitution.
However, unlike many aid programs, they do not give resources to the children. Rather, they disciple them and give them jobs so that they can have the dignity of paying their own way.
Significance in the Marketplace
Many who are called to the marketplace are missionaries even though they've never been on a mission trip. When you carry the light of Christ, everywhere you go you're somewhat of a missionary.
“Anybody who carries the light of Christ anywhere they go and tells people about Christ is doing missions.”
Level Up
Two things that could really help missionaries are to pay attention to what they're doing and help get the word out. In a world where most of the news is negative and focused on hate and fear, we need people whose perspective allows them to share the Good News of the Kingdom across the globe.

Over 80% of 1.2 billion people are in rural areas where they have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. I'm really excited to bring you this week's guest, Tony Evans. I connected with him through Brent Bazler, who is a former guest of the show but we're not here to talk about Brent today; Tony is our featured guest.
Following a career as an entrepreneur, Tony Evans began helping support the National Missionaries in rural India. Tony is now the US director for Mission Voice Network, which is primarily a church planting ministry with indigenous missionaries in the remote villages of India. They come alongside these missionaries who are already faithfully proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
With 80% of India's 1.2 billion people living in rural areas, the need is great. Only 20% of the missions focus in India is on these 800 million people who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. And the harvest is plentiful.
Key Scripture

Challenge
When Tony looks back at the wake of his life, he sees many instances where God has intervened. But one of the most poignant was the loss of their 9-year-old son to leukemia. Even in that difficult time, God was faithful.
Revelation
During Tony's career as an entrepreneur, there was a time when he was called in to consult on a problem. While there was a group that had been working on the problem for days, he had no information at all. So, on the way, he prayed for wisdom. When he arrived, he had the answer within minutes.
But that's not where the story ends. God showed him something after that.
Current Ministry
Tony's purpose is to raise prayer and financial support in the US for the ministry that's happening in India. He's continually amazed by what they accomplish with so few resources.
He also suggests that we connect with the ministry's founder, Brother V when He's in the US. You can find out more by visiting their website at MissionVoiceNetwork.org.

EM016: Church Planting Multiplication with Jay Judson https://engagingmissions.com/em016-church-planting-multiplication-jay-judson/ Wed, 09 Jul 2014 11:00:23 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=930 Jay Judson spent 12 years ministering in a closed country. Through his efforts, the people he's discipled have seen thousands of people baptized. In fact, they're reporting over 20,000 baptisms in 4 months. http://j.mp/emrs016 Jay Judson spent 12 years ministering in a closed country. Through his efforts, the people he's discipled have seen thousands of people baptized. In fact, they're reporting over 20,000 baptisms in 4 months. Jay Judson spent 12 years ministering in a closed country. He's really good at jump-starting and multiplying networks of churches among historically bible-less people groups.
I want to share some statistics with you because they’re astounding: Jay has trained 7 people. That may not sound ground-breaking but Scripture reminds us that we shouldn’t despise the day of small beginnings.
Those trainees report nearly 42,500 people baptized in nearly 1,050 house churches across 10 previously unreached people groups. Additionally, he’s also worked with several groups jump-starting ministries in southern Asia.
In this week's interview he shares some astounding numbers of baptisms that all started by him finding ways to decrease so that God could decrease. And the strategies Jay and others use will work in any culture – even the US.
Life in Ministry
Jay shares a little about himself and his ministry. When he started ministering, he found few allies in pastors. Instead, God brought him “common” people to disciple and send out, starting networks of churches in homes.

* He met them on their turf.
* He focused on the key elements of discipleship and let his key partners help him make it culturally relevant.
* He asked, “How can we help Buddhist-background people feel comfortable worshiping Jesus?”
* In the middle of oppression and suffocating poverty, they were able to ask, “Would you like to hear about hope?”


Key Scripture
Challenge
In 2004 he started seeing tremendous breakthroughs among the Buddhist people. Almost immediately he experienced total kidney failure and had to return to the US. He was on dialysis for a couple of months.
In that time, the 7 churches he had planted grew to 11, and then to 30 in the following 3 months. The churches kept multiplying while he wasn't there, which is the whole point.
Revelation
Meeting Dr. George Patterson totally changed how Jay approaches ministry and discipleship. Through the training he received, he learned effective ways to plant churches and to approach strategic ministry. He also learned that his focus on decreasing so that Christ could increase was critical. He
Current Ministry
He's received reports of over 20,000 baptisms over the last 4 months. As you'll hear Jay explain, he's intentionally under-reporting that number until he's been able to verify it even though he's personally trained and trusts the people who have given that report.
Significance in the Marketplace
Jay shared how one of his friends in Oregon owns a construction company and is totally about God's business in and through his business. He said that his friend (and trainee) has literally baptized people in a front-end loader and is really seeing God's Kingdom advance.
Level Up
Jay suggested that we do two specific things to “level up” our giving. First, focus on giving to the missionaries that we already know and love rather than giving to an organization. And, second, he provided two resources – foundations that will take seed money and invest it for the purpose of giving even more for the advancement of the Kingdom.

EM015: Uncommon Missions Destination with Brent and Temple Cundall https://engagingmissions.com/em015-uncommon-missions-destination-brent-temple-cundall/ Wed, 02 Jul 2014 11:00:28 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=910 Brent and Temple Cundall are raising support to go to an unexpected missions destination. Their mission is to raise up indigenous worship leaders to write the "heart songs" of their culture. London, southall, southhall, england, great britain, cundall, cundle, musicianaries, Brent and Temple Cundall are raising support to go to an unexpected missions destination – The United Kingdom. Their mission is to raise up indigenous worship leaders to write the “heart songs” of the Hindi language and they’re currently in the States, raising funds to make the leap.
Some people might be confused by a calling to a developed country. Especially a country such as the UK, the launching pad for the Wesley brothers and the home of C.S. Lewis, to name just a few. But their call is specific to the South Asian community of Southall, where it can feel more like India than England.
As we talked and they shared their heart, it became clear that there is a huge opportunity in sharing the love of Christ in a community where people are in transition, assimilating to a new culture. We have similar opportunities all around us as our lives and communities become more diverse. Let's learn from what God is doing in their lives.
Key Scripture
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God,

who sits on the throne,

and to the Lamb.”
Revelation 7:9-10
Challenge
Temple shared one of the aspects of raising funds that emotionally drained her. In the end, though, God provided as she was obedient.
Revelation
Brent shared how he and Temple have approached this calling, always asking God for the right answer rather than the affirmative answer. From their first trip to Southall to the process of being approved by World Harvest (now SERGE), they have been submitted. They never went into something expecting a certain answer, they just wanted God to show them what they should see.
As we chatted, they also shared their plan for approaching this assignment as servants, even though they're being brought in as experts. Their heart is to raise up other people, not to glorify themselves.
Current Ministry
They are really excited about the ministry opportunities. The church they'll be joining has 4 baptisms upcoming, each from a different major world religion. Brent said they know that this is just a taste of what is possible, knowing that only 2% of the Indian population is Christian worldwide.
Temple shared a little about SERGE's ministry model. It's based on placing a community of believers in the middle of an otherwise non-believing community and allowing the contagion of the Gospel to spread.
Level Up
Brent and Temple are raising funds right now so they're very aware of the challenges and the value of that one-time and monthly donation. So, the easy answer is, “increase your giving.”
There are other ways to give, though. Perhaps a gift card or offering a place to stay while they are on furlough could go a long way. Beyond that, communication is really important. That email letting a missionary know that you're there and paying attention can really mean a lot.

Ultimately, though, Paul Yoder was a full-time missionary with Word Made Flesh. During that time he was closely involved with the struggles missionaries have raising and tracking support and developed some software that helped them. Ultimately, though, he had to leave after only 9 months.
After leaving, Paul entered the workforce full-time. Still, he couldn't forget the challenges he and other missionaries faced every day in managing their support. Finally, he decided to take what he'd already done and develop a new web application to help missionaries address the specific pain points he and others were experiencing.
Out of that desire to take the headache out of tracking support, DonorElf was born. Paul's hope is that missionaries will be able to focus more on what's most important in their lives and ministries.
In this week's interview, Paul and I talk a little about DonorElf. Through it all, though, as we focused on the story of God in his life, we saw so clearly how God has had His hand on Paul's life through all the twists and turns his life took.
Key Quote
Paul shared two quotes that are really meaningful to him.

Challenge
There was a time when shortly after the birth of Paul's first son that he was working full-time and working on DonorElf, too. It was becoming too much and Paul was about to burn out.
It was exactly at that time God began to show him the other side of the Sabbath. It's not just about rest; Paul shares what God showed Him.
Revelation
There was a time when Paul was struggling with why God would have him move to be involved with a missions organization, knowing that he would fail at that and have to reenter the workforce. As he prayed about it, God revealed something very meaningful to him.
Current Ministry
Much of Paul's current ministry is tied to DonorElf. It's already doing great things for missionaries and he personally handles many of the things an IT department would handle for larger organizations. Still, he wants it to do more and he shared several things he's hoping to add to the software so that it can be even more helpful.

Discover what God showed her. After a short-term missions trip, Laura Beth Harbin was ready to settle back into normal life but God had different plans. Discover what God showed her. After a trip to Swaziland, Laura Beth had settled back into her comfort zone as a college student. Then she felt God’s call to lay it all down and leave on a 9-month Passport Immersion trip with Adventures in Missions. In order to raise the money she needed, she transferred to a less expensive school to save money and get ahead in her schooling.
Now 20 years old, Laura Beth recently returned from her trip and is beginning to reintegrate with life in the US after ministering in 3 countries over the course of 9 months.

Key Scripture
Laura Beth loves both Romans 8 and Hebrews 11. In concert, they help her understand both the reality of Faith and how we walk in the Spirit.
Challenge
While in Guatemala for 3 weeks, Laura Beth, and the rest of the team, were really having a rough time. They were broken. But through the ministry of another team on the ground in Guatemala, things began to change.
During this time Laura Beth came face-to-face with some very personal challenges. Through it all, though, God kept reminder her of how much He loved her and how proud He was of her.
Revelation
While in the Philippines, Laura Beth was taking some time by herself in the morning. She'd been struggling with some lies about herself in her own head. But in that moment God gave her an idea that allowed her to take physical action to overcome the mental attacks.

Current Ministry
Laura Beth is working at a YMCA day camp, which is helping her reacclimatize to life in the US. While she would love to continue traveling like she has been, she's not certain of her future but she knows that she needs to focus on completing her schooling for now.
What is Reentry Like
Imagine being with the same group of people for nearly a year and then suddenly having none of them around. And, at the same time reentering life with friends and family you've not seen in nearly a year. You've had amazing experiences that are totally separate from the way you used to live but your friends and family haven't. It's difficult to explain and to relate after an extended experience like that; it takes some time to reconnect.
Level Up

They are caring for orphans by providing resources to orphanages, support and pastoral care for adoptive families and advocacy with the government.

They are caring for orphans by providing resources to orphanages, support and pastoral care for adoptive families and advocacy with the government. Denise and Oswaldo Piñeiros are missionaries to the over 200,000 orphans in Ecuador. They povide resources to orphanages. They also  provide support and pastoral care for adoptive families and advocacy with the government.
I connected with them through Autumn Kerr of Visiting Orphans, who we heard from in Episode 3. I'm really thankful for this connection.
As we talked, Denise shared how God called them to this ministry. They've walked through some challenges. Now they are working on some things that should really set them up to minister more freely.
Key Scripture
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James [1:27]
As Denise shared her heart, she also shared how she and Oswaldo are trying to focus on the often-forgotten part of that verse. As they've started caring for orphans, it's shaped how they approach ministry in and to orphanages.

Challenge
Often missionaries leave family and friends behind. When they do, they can miss out on significant life events. Last year Denise had one of those experiences but God did something special that gave her an overwhelming sense of His affection for her.
Revelation
As Denise and Oswaldo were just learning about orphan care, God began to birth a desire to see the kind of ministry that they now have. Still, they were uncertain whether they were supposed to be the ones to do it.
One day, Denise had a “mirror” experience that sealed the deal in her heart”
Current Ministry
Through Visiting Orphans, they have seen volunteers coming down for longer assignments, sometimes up to six months. And they are working on changing the legal status of their ministry in ways that will open more doors.
Level Up
Denise reminded us that being a missionary can be lonely sometimes. Often the best thing we can do to “level up” our support of a missionary is just to be a friend. Send that letter. Make that call. Connect via Skype. Focus on being fully active in their lives and building a long-term relationship.

Amber shares with us the challenge that many non-profits and their founders face after just a few years of operation. Thankfully, her board stepped in and the organization has new life. And, as a result of their efforts, Amber is able to focus more on what she's really good at.
Revelation
Amber shares the story of how reading an article started her in a new direction. It was one of only a couple times in her life when God made His plans so clear to hear.
Current Ministry
Amber is really excited about recent additions to the board of Freedom's Promise. It's clear that God is really building up the board to be able to shepherd Freedom's Promise into its next phase. They took several years to work on due diligence, then to get projects up and running. Now they're moving into a phase of refining.
One of the things that plays into that refining phase is to focus on metrics. They know that they must measure what they're doing in order to know if it's making a difference and also to share wins with their donors.
Level Up
One of the biggest ways people can help a ministry such as Freedom's Promise is to help them network. To share what they're doing with people we know as well as to help connect people who want to help with them.
Freedom's Promise provides opportunities for people who like to work on clean water projects, education, trafficking prevention, and more. Because they're striking at the root of the problem, there's a place for anyone who wants to help improve the situation, regardless of the kinds of projects they prefer.
Speed Round
Hindsight
Best Advice
Support and Encouragement
The sabbatical that Amber's board offered her really helped Freedom's Promise and helped her to be able to continue, avoiding burnout.
Personal Success Habit
For Amber, it's not so much a habit as maintaining the mindset that Freedom's Promise was never hers. It has always belonged to God.

EM010: Serving God’s Leaders Around the World with Rich Frazer https://engagingmissions.com/em010-serving-gods-leaders-around-world/ Wed, 28 May 2014 10:30:37 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=751 Rich Frazer, the president of Spiritual Overseers Service, International, shares his heart for global missions. As you listen, you'll discover the way that SOS International supports the leaders God is raising up around the world. Rich Frazer, the president of Spiritual Overseers Service, International, shares his heart for global missions. As you listen, you'll discover the way that SOS International supports the leaders God is raising up around the world. This week we're talking Rich Frazer, the president of Spiritual Overseers Service, International. Over the years, SOS International has provided training to thousands of leaders in 87 countries through more than 800 training assignments.
Their specific ministry style is to serve organizations who ask them to come and provide specific training for church leaders. They search for and send the most qualified people they can find to invest deeply in the local church, wherever they go. And while they are there, they serve the vision and agenda of the organization that invited them.
Rich has been providing this kind of training for indigenous leaders around the world for over 20 years and has seen the exponential value of investing in the global church in this way.
I'd also like to give our mutual friend, Mike Priebe of MemoryPeel a hat tip for connecting us.

Key Scriptures

* 1 Timothy 2:3-5
* Matthew [9:36]-38
* Ephesians [4:11]-12
* 2 Timothy 2:2


Why not teach a man to TEACH a man to fish?
Tweet This


Challenge
Rich points out that more than 100,000 people receive Christ every day and that more than 2,000 churches are planted every week. However, 90% of the pastors, whether volunteer, full-time, or bivocational, have little to no training. The challenge SOS International has is getting to those leaders to help them know how to study Scripture, show them what Christian leadership is all about, and to invite them to adopt a Christ-like model.
Revelation
Rich shares the surprising story of one of his early prayers about whether he should go into missions.
Current Ministry
Rich shares a little about the people SOS International is sending out over the course of this year to invest in the global church.
Level Up
Rich encourages us to consider our investments in missions based on the long-term impact of financial and prayerful impact.

Through Project Ignite Light, Pebbles Thompson shines a light in the darkness of severe child abuse. Listen to this week's episode to learn how buying pajamas and taking showers led Pebbles and her husband, Darin, from a comfortable position as youth pastors in a church they loved to a ministry that now helps 2,400 abused children each year. While the numbers are staggering, they believe that even one is too many.
As you listen, you'll find how how their “burning bush” experience led them to child advocacy centers, where they discovered one way they could show the love of God and restore some dignity to children who so desperately needed it. You'll also hear a story of how Pebbles is able to deal with the emotional challenges of this kind of ministry. And, you may even some practical ways that you can be a minister of grace to those around you.
 

Key Scriptures

* Ephesians 3, vs 17-21
* Isaiah 43, vs 18-19

Challenge
During the summers, giving often takes a dip. There was one summer where it was particularly challenging. Learn how God went over and above the minimum financial need and showed Pebbles that his provision is extravagant.
Revelation
After nearly a year of operation, Pebbles felt overwhelmed and ineffective. But God revealed something that put it in perspective.

Current Ministry
Pebbles and her husband dream big and they serve a big God who rules and reigns. There are several things that are really exciting them, including things that are happening on their new property. They are also developing materials that could lead to exponential growth in serving victims of extreme child abuse.
Level Up
Pebbles shares some insights into the simplicity of ministry that we can apply in ministering to others as well as supporting missionaries and other ministers.

He often uses the "Person of Peace" framework for evangelism and discipleship and is seeing multiplication in house churches and discipleship that is beyond his ability to count. In this week's interview he shares a little about that and also some striking stories of God's faithfulness throughout his ministry. Sean Steckbeck is a missionary and church planter in Israel.

Sean Steckbeck is a missionary and church planter in Israel. He often uses the “Person of Peace” framework for evangelism and discipleship and is seeing multiplication in house churches and discipleship that is beyond his ability to count. In this week's interview he shares a little about that and also some striking stories of God's faithfulness throughout his ministry.
I’ve known Sean since he was in high school, which was actually a much darker time in my life. Since then God has been very good to me and Sean has stepped out into full-time ministry. In this week’s interview, he shares a number of great insights that have formed how he’s ministering to people now. And he also shares some news that stands in stark contrast to what we often see on the news.

Key Scripture
The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

Genesis [49:10]
Challenge
Sean shares a time when God intervened in an amazing way as he and his family were returning to Israel.
Revelation
Sean shares one key question that God used to really shake him to his core as he and his family were approaching burnout in the ministry. And then he shares how his perspective has changed since that time.
Current Ministry
Sean spent over two years researching the ministry model that they have been using since about 2007. It's simple, biblical, and is growing exponentially. And the results defy what we see on the evening news; Jews and Arabs are ministering to each other.
Person of Peace
Sean shares how the Person of Peace model that they are using is different from traditional evangelistic methods. In his words, evangelism is transformed into a treasure hunt where the treasure is finding the person who God is already preparing.
And the wonderful thing about this model is that it isn't specific to “global” missions. Instead, it is something that can be, and is being, applied wherever we are, wherever God has called us. Even if we're called to the marketplace.
Level Up
Sean shares two things that really encourage missionaries while they're on the mission field.

EM007: “Never Lose Sight of the Gospel” with Corben Barber https://engagingmissions.com/em007-never-lose-sight-gospel-corben-barber/ Wed, 07 May 2014 11:00:56 +0000 http://engagingmissions.com/?p=525 Corben Barber recently completed his Discipleship Training School with Youth With a Mission (YWAM). After three months of learning about the heart of God, he joined a team headed to Uganda, Africa. Join us as we learn about God's faithfulness throughout t Corben Barber recently completed his Discipleship Training School with Youth With a Mission (YWAM). After three months of learning about the heart of God, he joined a team headed to Uganda, Africa. Join us as we learn about God's faithfulness throughout t I’ve been anticipating this interview with Corben Barber for a few weeks. He’s a recent graduate of a Discipleship Training School (DTS) with the Nashville base for Youth With a Mission (YWAM). After completing his DTS, Corben went on a two month trip to Uganda.
Corben graduated from high school last year and went almost directly into Youth With a Mission (YWAM). After completing the study portion of his Discipleship Training School (DTS), he and the team he was on went to Uganda.
His team just returned to the States a few weeks ago and I’ve been hoping to get him on the show ever since. In past weeks, we’ve heard from people currently on the mission field, some who have transitioned into the marketplace, or who lead missions-related organizations in the US. But Corben is our first guest who just returned from a short-term mission trip.
Key Quote

Challenges
Corben shares with us what crutches and digestive problems have to do with a lady who wanted to receive the Gospel.
Revelation
Their trip involved a service project with aquaponics but when they completed their project, they realized something that made them wonder why they were really there. Their discovery “destroyed” their plans for the rest of the trip but led to a personal revelation.
Current Ministry
Corben has completed his time with YWAM and is seeking God for his next assignment. While he's in this time of waiting to see what's next, he wants to be focused on a couple of specific things. But he also realizes that just because he's in a holding pattern doesn't mean God can't use him right now.
Level Up
Corben mentions how just sharing lunch and having a real conversation as friends can encourage a missionary. That's something that we can do with anyone in our lives.
Speed Round
Hindsight
Corben realized something when he returned that he wishes he would have known because it would have made re-entry easier.
Best Advice
Something someone did to support
While random financial gifts are great, adding a pause and one simple word to, “How are you doing?” made all the difference.
Personal Success Habit
Corben has taken one practice that was mandatory while he was in Discipleship Training School and made it part of his life in a slightly different way.

This week I’m really happy to bring you Brent Bazler (alias), who works with the Nashville base for Youth With a Mission (YWAM). In our time together, he shared some amazing stories of God’s faithfulness and offered a two-part framework for encouraging, supporting, and blessing missionaries in unconventional ways as well as the “M.L.P.” framework for making ministry decisions.
Before becoming a missionary, Brent spent time as an educator, living for the summer mission trips until it finally became clear that he and his family needed to step into full-time ministry in order to be obedient to where God was leading them. Since that transition they have faced challenges and also seen amazing examples of God’s faithfulness.
I so enjoy the way Brent delights in The Lord and trusts so fully. I’m sure that you will enjoy this interview.
Key Scripture

Challenges

* How a 16th floor apartment, and angel, and a roll of film are part of the same story
* What happened just before a dentist appointment
* How God confirmed that Brent’s children had the right idea when it came time for a significatn life change (and investment)

Revelation
How God used a group of ladies from a church in California to challenge Brent and his family. And how that led to a new direction in their ministry.

One Thing
The one thing that Brent wishes he would have known when he just started out. And how he’s seen God’s faithfulness.
Current Ministry

* How ministry and children fit together for Brent and his wife.
* A fun way that YWAM Nashville is supporting their community (hint: you can find out more and even be involved if you sign up here before May 10, 2014)
* Some other exciting things that involve both Brent and YWAM Nashville

What’s special about YWAM Nashville?
There are a number of different missions organizations. Each tends to have their own focus and I believe that all are valuable. In our discussion, Brent offered up some things that he believes make YWAM unique.

* YWAM is an extremely flexible organization, willing to move on short notice
* YWAM Nashville is good at building and maintaining relationships.
* Find out what an umbrella and a C.U.P. have to do with worship and the ministry direction of YWAM Nashville.
* The “M.L.P.” framework for making ministry decisions.

* Ministry (What should I do?)
* Location (Where should I go?)
* People (Who should I be involved with?)



Level Up
Brent offers some great “outside the box” ideas for what people can do to encourage and support missionaries. He shares a couple of ways that people have helped him and his family in the past. And he offers a framework for being able to discover those unconventional ways to support and encourage missionaries.

Darius Walker is a missionary and is the author of Be a Fully Funded Missionary and Money for Missionaries. In this week's interview he offers some great insights that you can apply, whether you're a missionary or in the marketplace. I’m really excited to be able to bring you Darius Walker of Be a Fully Funded Missionary this week.
Darius is a missionary and is the author of Be a Fully Funded Missionary and Money for Missionaries. I do need to say that “Darius Walker” is a pen name that he’s chosen to use for security reasons.
I first learned of Darius while looking for some fundraising ideas for a couple friends of mine in Kenya and Australia. When I found Be a Fully Funded Missionary I checked it out and then recommended they check it out. It’s more than a book – it’s a complete guide to raising funds for long-term missions.
In this week’s interview you’ll discover:

* What’s unique about Be a Fully Funded Missionary
* How One step at a time has shaped his behavior and how it helped him in everything from learning languages to launching his website
* Why one person’s counsel was proven right, but a year later
* How God used Paul’s letters to get Darius and his family through a difficult season
* How thankful Darius is for the team he works with and why it’s important to ask questions before joining a team
* Four specific things you can do today that will encourage and support a missionary without spending any money
