The Mission Workshops:

The Unfinished Task
Where else does the gospel need to go?
Do you know what the global state of mission is today? How much of the world is still yet to hear the good news about Jesus, and why? Are we sending workers where they are needed most? Be challenged by this interactive, thought-provoking presentation.

Ups and Downs
What’s really involved in cross-cultural church planting?
What does it take to plant a growing church in another culture? How does prayer support or the lack of it impact the ministry and life of the church planter? Experience the joys and trials of church planting through this evidence-based board game.

Secret Message
How can you share the gospel where it’s not welcome?
Imagine you are living in a foreign land hostile towards the gospel. How would you navigate your way through the security, political and bureaucratic entanglements in such a context to share about Jesus? Let your faith and courage be challenged through this role play.

Culture Shock
Why is crossing cultures harder than it looks?
How does it feel to be immersed in another culture where subtle unspoken rules are hard for outsiders to know? What assumptions do we have about ‘other cultures’? Find out how you might handle crossing cultures in this card game.

Home and Away
What happens between the ‘sender’ and the ‘sent’?
What decisions do missionaries need to make on the field? How can their sending church know of their ministry and needs? What role do mission agencies play? Investigate the dynamics and the vital role of effective communication between mission partners.

Invisible Team
Who are the VIPs behind every missionary and their ministry?
What does it take for a missionary to get to the field? Who are the people behind-the-scenes that enable them to serve effectively long-term? Discover the people, the talents, and the perseverance needed to make up this critical invisible team.
