10) Nations Course 2019 in Chiang Mai and Rotterdam

Last year’s participants said: “The Course shed light on the areas that were dark for me and through this course I got the last piece of my armor in place.” Another wrote, “I do not know how any missionary can do without it! Most helpful course I have ever attended.” The Nations Course is a six-week cross-cultural intensive. It exists to prepare people for effective cross-cultural ministry, and equip them to make disciples among least reached people groups. Organizers want to promote an ethos of life-long learning. Cross Cultural ministry is one of the most misunderstood ministries/occupations on the planet. Course leaders wish to avoid the mistakes of the past by providing experienced trainers, who will open people’s eyes to new ways of thinking, acting, and feeling when approaching different cultures.

10) Try This Progression to Train New Believers in Christ

What if you were to ask, “Where do I start with training a new believer?” As of today, here’s what we’d recommend.

First, introduce your new believer to “Momentum,” the free course at:

www.MomentumYes.org

This course takes about 9 hours. It will help them get the “why” quite clearly. Why are we in this? Why are we here? What’s our purpose?

Then, once they’ve finished Momentum, engage them with Zume Training at…

www.ZumeProject.com

This will help them get the tools and practices. It’s roughly 20 hours of group sessions (a group consists of 4-12). By the time they’re done, they’ll be praying and sharing like never before.

Then head for 4 Fields Training as the next and more advanced step. One of the best places to catch this training is at…

e3partners.org/training/

This training will help you make sure you’ve driven home the ultimate end goal and how to get there.

All three trainings are free — and you can do all three without having to leave your church or your hometown. 2019 is a wonderful time to live!

4) Do You Know Someone Who Might Benefit from Re-entry Assistance?
