When you land on the field, what version of yourself will you bring to the task?

In this article, we'll share resources God has used in the lives of others who have walked in your shoes. Get equipped & bring your most surrendered, informed & prepared self to serve among the nations!

  1. Workbooks If you're looking for a self-paced, comprehensive way to learn about global missions, workbooks are the way to go. Learn about the biblical basis for missions, God's heart for the nations, and how to get started right where you are by starting these 6-7 week studies. Make it more fun by inviting your friends/family to join along!
  1. Books & E-Books
    Learn in an in-depth way from seasoned missions veterans through books and ebooks. What you read influences who you are, so if you're looking to become a cross-cultural worker, adding in reading materials to your daily routine can help grow your heart and understanding of the nations.
  1. Podcasts
    If you're an audible learner or finding time to read seems daunting, podcasts could be the best way for you to grow your understanding of global missions.

    There are a number of episodes on missions out there if you search on Apple or Spotify however, we've pulled together two podcasts that are almost solely centered around what God is doing in the nations so you can search their libraries and find the subtopics most helpful for you.

  1. Trainings
    The most experiential learning you can take advantage of before serving is training. Many organizations require training before leaving for the field because of the immense benefits preparation can bring to the worker & those they'll interact with in the host country.

    Here are a few of varying lengths to explore!
  1. Prayer & Unreached People Group (UPG) Guides
    One of the easiest resources to use right away is prayer & unreached people group guides. God-honoring prayer points your heart in the direction of Christ's.

    By developing prayer rhythms for the nations especially those that have never heard the good news- you'll grow in understanding of the nations and learn to see them as God does in scripture.

You're off to a great start!

Now you have a few tools to equip yourself for global missions! Teachability is a key quality to have as a cross cultural worker, so your willingness to learn is an encouraging start.

We're praying for you!
