Brigada is a web journal offering resources, strategy tips, tools & “hacks” to Great Commission Christians. It is edited by Doug Lucas, Team Expansion, Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Here’s a very brief history:
Since January 25th, 1995, the weekly Brigada Today email journal has been informing Great Commission Christians about our great global quest: giving hope and help to those who need it most. During its initial 3 or 4 years, Brigada sought to create email discussion groups that would unify like-minded pilgrims in reaching specific pockets of people. Thankfully, now there are several specialist websites dedicated to that task. In more recent years, Brigada has honed in on what it always did best for Christians in God’s Great Cause:

  • Identify & promote helpful resources, conferences, websites, agencies, individuals, etc.
  • Analyze & capsulate in layman terms the current trends in global mission, along with their potential impact on the world of missions
  • Challenge & motivate evangelical Christians toward greater involvement in finishing the Task of global evangelism — to seek to inspire others to help in passing the baton of responsibility and initiative in world evangelism, to form a kind of “brigade” so that, shoulder to shoulder, we can finish the Task that Jesus assigned us in Matthew 28:19-20.

Today there are about 10,000 subscribers of our weekly publication who, together, make up the Brigada family of participants. May God grant all of us wisdom, insight, and energy to keep on sharing hope and help to those who need it most!

Here at our new “Web 2.0” site, we have, in a manner of speaking, re-created history, posting every past edition of Brigada Today via this blogging approach as if they had been written this way all along. The real truth is that the original versions of these Brigada Today editions were sent out as emails, then logged to the web in a completely different format. Beginning June 28, 2008, we recast them here in this new format, which includes multiple new tools such as all-site searching, date sorting, commenting, and much more.

Thanks for being part of the Brigada family!
