Short-Term Missions: Exploring Biblical Roots (AUDIO)

In the coming weeks, we'll be releasing the audio from MTW West Coast's spring 2019 Equip missions training which focused on short-term missions. These will be posted on our blog and distributed through MTW Online, our bi-weekly email newsletter. A new seminar will be posted every two weeks. We think you'll find these seminars informative, encouraging, and challenging.

***

One of the most controversial topics in modern missions is the value of short-term mission trips. Done properly, a short-term mission trip can accomplish much. Done poorly, short-term missions can do an equal amount of harm.

In this five-session Equip missions training, we explore the biblical roots of short-term missions, learn how to use short-term missions to assist and serve the long-term ministry, cover how to practically prepare for short-term missions, and look at even what to do once you return from your missions trip. 

Listen as MTW West Coast Hub Director Mike Pettengill introduces the Spring 2019 Equip Missions Training and explains the vision, mission, and values of MTW and how these principles, founded in Scripture, form the foundation for how we do missions. Mike lays the groundwork for the five-session training that will explore further how short-term mission trips can be God-glorifying and kingdom advancing when done properly.

This seminar was recorded live at the spring 2019 Equip missions training in Fullerton, California. Equip is a quarterly training event sponsored by MTW West Coast designed to deepen your understanding of missions and help you see how God's global plan intersects with your life. Additional seminars are available on Soundcloud.

What Is Missions Like in Central Asia? (VIDEO)

Central Asia is a largely misunderstood region. It's not Russia, China, or the Middle East. It's both ancient and new. And it's unreached.
