7) Seeking DMM & Other Resources in Arabic

24:14 is currently compiling resources from teams, churches & organizations to share with the broader network to help launch disciple-making-movements and training hubs across the globe! As they do this, they have received a specific request for resources sharing about DMM principles specifically in Arabic, & they’d love to see if any Brigada subscribers have any! If so, please click comment, if those are publicly available on the web, and share the URL. If they’re not publicly available, please email

morganat2414nowdotnet  (morganat2414nowdotnet)   with those Arabic materials/resources or connections to translators.

 

12) Is Missio Nexus Becoming the New ACMC? Finally.

Finally, somebody might be stepping up to the plate to fill the gap for what we all used to call, ACMC. Have you seen, for example, the Missio Nexus media collection at…

 

missionexus.org/media/

 

It’s HUGE!!! And look at some of those titles! For example, “Mapping Church Missions: A Compass for Ministry Strategy.” This is *exactly* the kind of title ACMC might have produced back in the 80s. Unfortunately, as we’ve mentioned before, ACMC is no more — but Missio Nexus …. IS! : ) Hats off to Ted, Annette, and all the folks at Missio Nexus for filling this void.

 

6) Missiology.com is Stocked with World-Class Resources

Their sole aim is to curate an inclusive set of resources related to evangelism, missions history, the theology of mission and missional theology, intercultural studies, world Christianity, interreligious dialogue, and everything in between. And, it’s free! Check it out at…

3) LightSys Rocks: See Their Makeover of the Former GMI Infobank

We love LightSys.
They travel the world helping nonprofits and churches with I.T. needs… like angels
doing good deeds in the name of Jesus! For example, see the makeover they just
completed of Global Mapping’s former “Infobank” website.

Just as an example, scroll down, click “browse resources by country,” then click on “China.” Outstanding stuff. Thank you LightSys!

1) Resource to Help You or Your Staff Return “Home” Well

If you’re returning to your homeland after serving cross-culturally, there will likely be SOME kind of reentry adjustment. Consider “Returning Well: Your Guide to Thriving Back “Home” After Serving Cross-Culturally.” It guides cross-cultural workers of faith, step by step, through the process of a debriefing that leads to renewal so that they may truly thrive back “home.” Consider giving one to every re-entering staff person this year – what a great gift!

12) Resources for Missionaries

Brigada loves sites which gather great content for missionaries — and there’s a new one especially (exclusively?) for people engaged in overseas missions or full-time ministry…

http://missionary-resources.myallforjesus.com

This site was created by a missionary, for missionaries, with the purpose of helping to connect missionaries with existing resources. You might ask, but why would Brigada (which attempts to do exactly the same?) refer people to a competing site? The answer is simple: There’s no competition among lighthouses. : )

7) Resources for Christian teachers

transformingteachersEquipping teachers for Christ-centered education is not easy, so Transforming Teachers has collected resources to help at the recently renewed website

http://www.transformingteachers.org

The “Visual Valet: Personal assistant for the Christian teacher and thinker” has also been published as an Amazon e-Book

http://tb365.org/VisualValet

This book presents a simple model to connect God’s world to God’s word. It is also available as a PDF download on the Transforming Teachers website. Additional resources for Christ-centered education in all languages are welcome. Please contact Harold at

5) Got Kids? Visit Lifekids.tv

Life-KidsIn the previous item, we highlighted YouVersion (in case you’ve been sleeping under a rock and haven’t heard of it). But if you’re a missionary family serving far from your local church and you’ve been seeking resources online to help your kids get faith and/or keep it, try visiting…

http://lifekids.tv/

There you’ll find music and teaching videos, challenge cards, bible stories and more. Download coloring pages and activity guides. Check out parent resources and small group studies for your family. It’s colorful, it’s relevant, and it’s free.

14) The BackPage: Search and Replicate

sowing good seedThis past week, we received an email from a teammate headed to the Middle East. She was training out in Colorado and, in her training facility, she came across a binder FULL of past editions of Brigada Today’. She asked around and, come to find out, a long-time Brigada participant named Paula had been printing and binding the past editions to benefit the many missionary guests who regularly passed through there. Obviously, the teammate was overjoyed to find people using Brigada. (The Brigada fan in Colorado had said, “In nearly every edition, I find at least SOMETHING to pass along to other missionaries.” God be praised. But what we loved as much as anything was Paula’s willingness to search and redistribute… to share “as one beggar telling another where to find bread.”

We’re not sure how you see your own role in missions, but we feel like this “search and replicate” strategy is a great one. Why not decide today that you’re going to “search and replicate” the best resources, the best information, and the best data you can — for the good of the Kingdom, for the growth of His cause, and for the glory of the King.

5) RightNow Ministries Fills Crucial Gap for Tomorrow

rightnowWow. Hats off to the leaders at

https://www.rightnow.org

who are putting together a great site, along with a great set of resources, for all of us. They talk about a “Trader” from a biblical standpoint. ” A Trader is a new kind of missionary, not defined by geography, but defined by a resolve to do four things: choose daily, hate injustice, work as worship, and act swiftly.”

Regardless of whether you’re looking for media, teaching videos, conferences, or workshops, RightNow has something for everyone. Learn about their mission and purposes at…

8) What Can You Tell us About the Keystone Project?

keystone projectThis past week, a colleague shared quite a find:

http://www.keystoneproject.org/

There are tons of resources on the “Training Downloads” page. Has anyone tried these and, if so, can anyone share (in one of the Comment boxes following the web version of this item) how helpful this stuff is please? Because it LOOKS awesome… for instruction on discipleship and what it requires, the Holy Spirit, and disciplemaking movements. And it LOOKS like all this stuff is absolutely free. Could it be true?
