5) Missio Nexus Has a New Report on Mission CEOs: Is it Helpful?

In a word, indubitably. How many CEOs took part? 119. Would we have liked for that to have been 500? Sure. But did these 119 CEOs give some fantastic answers? Most definitely. Their top personal priorities, their top influencers (the page on “Most Recommended Books” alone is worth the price of admission), the “annual review,” work and life, energizers, exhausters, staff effectiveness, activity assessment, external forces at work, internal forces and much, much more – they all help us put the job in perspective. These sets of answers help us see the “systems” that can influence… that ARE influencing… the jobs we do as leaders of agencies. VanHuis and his team have done an incredibly valuable service for us. You can read the entire report online for free if you’re already a member of Missio Nexus. (If you’re not — gasp.) See it here:

6) Missio Nexus’s Report on Church Missions Leaders: Is it Helpful?

In a word, absolutely. Seeing how other local church missions leaders function, how they prioritize (e.g., how they rank various concerns), what are the external forces at work in their jobs, what they consider to be key attributes of effective missions leaders, what are their key resources, what are their most helpful books, where do they send short-term teams — all these and more… they help create categories. They help give shape to our ability to analyze our own systems of thinking. Imagine a report that helps you keep short-term teams safe, or helps you collaborate. If you’re a member of Missio Nexus, this report is free for you to read online. (If you’re not — gasp.) See it here:

6) We Just Read "God’s Hostage" (Andrew Brunson); Couldn’t Stop

We couldn’t put it down. Once we began reading, it drew us in and we couldn’t stop. There are indeed some reality checks. Andrew openly reveals the challenges of living in a Turkish prison. We also fully capture his transparency as he dealt with the reality of questions about his faith. Why would God allow him to be captured and held like this? Why wasn’t God there to insure a quick release? If you’d like to catch all this and more, pick up God’s Hostage for a discount at…

12) In Two Weeks: 15 Days of Prayer for the Hindu World 2019

This 15-day prayer campaign kicks off October 20th and ends on November 3rd. It’s just in time for the Diwali season. Diwali symbolizes the “spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.” Light, in Hinduism, is “knowledge and consciousness”. Many Hindus pray ‘Asatho ma jyothir gamaya.’ (‘Lead me from darkness to light’). Of course, Christians believe that Jesus claimed, ‘I am the light of the world.” Pray that Hindus can find Him as light and hope.

You’ll read about case studies, movements in the Bible, and lessons learned in the American church and with agencies. Plus you’ll be able to acquire all kinds of helpful tools for your own work. They could have asked $20. But they didn’t. Get the printed version for $8.52 and the Kindle version for under $1. Or just download the PDF version for free. It’s your choice. Well done, 2414!

 

10) Fascinating Interview with the Author of "Myth of the Dying Church"

Glenn T. Stanton is the author of the new book, “The Myth of the Dying Church: How Christianity Is Actually Thriving in America and the World.” He asks, “Is Christianity declining, even dying across North America, as the media and many pundits would have us believe?” He also wonders whether, “Globally, is it losing out to other religions, and especially not holding its own against Islam?” Stanton, a professional researcher at Focus on the Family, digs into the research concerning spirituality in America, and globally, revealing the hope and truth about the vitality and future of the church.

1) Curtis Sergeant Has Refused to Write a Book: Until Now

He’s trained thousands — who have gone on to disciple HUNDREDS of thousands. In fact, probably only God knows — because Curtis would never tell. His humility wouldn’t have allowed for it. But now, you can order his first ever book — and he’s even arranged for you to receive it digitally for free. Just click to…

Click the button, “Get the free ebook!” Or read some of the endorsements first. We’ve read it — and it’s worth any price. Because it will help you, truly, become a disciple worth multiplying. The secret for all of us will be — that we read and DO it. “The movement starts with you.”

 

3) Where Can We Learn More about How to Make and Multiply Disciples?

There are two recent books from two of the largest CPMs/DMMs in the world: Ying and Grace Kai’s Training for Trainers (WIGTake, 2018), and Victor John and Dave Coles, Bhojpuri Breakthrough (WIGTake 2019). Both books are available for volume discount at

 

www.churchplantingmovements.com/index.php/vertresources/bookstore

 

These two movements alone have resulted in more than two million baptisms. Please don’t forget to keep praying for Grace, who, interestingly, is the discipler of Ying. She’s had a stroke, though, so far, it looks fairly mild. She’s lost some mobility, however. Please pray hard for her.

 

7) Here’s Your Chance to Learn About 24:14 and Kingdom Movements

The printed book is finally “live” at Amazon. See it for under $9… and the Kindle version is as cheap as Kindle gets (99 cents). The 24:14 Vision is to see the gospel shared with every people group on earth in our generation. Organizers long to be in the generation that finishes what Jesus began and other faithful workers before us have given their lives to. Examples of kingdom movements can be found dotted throughout church history, yet God is doing something unique in our day. Movements are more numerous and widely spread than ever before. 24:14 Participants long to see the gospel proclaimed throughout the world as a testimony to all people groups in their lifetime. They hope you will catch that vision as you read and join them in praying and serving to start kingdom movements in every unreached people and place. Get the book. : )

Well done, 24:14.
