Thoughts from Class: The Inward-Outward Aspect of Missions

Published by: Anonymous
April 13, 2013

When is the last time you read the Old Testament prophets? Probably not your favorite place to turn at 5:30am for morning devotions. Oh, sure, there are some passages that we love and have heard preached on from time and time (e.g. Isaiah 9; Jeremiah 31; Micah 5). But if I can speak from my experience, these tend to be some of the most difficult books of the Bible to understand and see how they connect to our lives today. Yet, if we're going to understand Christian missions and Jesus' commission of his disciples then these books are indispensible!

Pray for China

Published by: Luke Humphrey
April 5, 2013

For those using the 7th edition of Operation World as a prayer guide for the nations, today marks the beginning of a two week stretch where thousands using this resource will be interceding on behalf of the country of China. As a church, we have global partners serving in China and in the surrounding countries of East Asia, so we would do well to remember these members of our faith family during these fourteen days.

Audio Bibles and Bible Translation

Published by: Luke Humphrey
March 29, 2013

Have you ever stopped to think about the beauty of having the Bible translated into the English language? We have multiple different translations to reference when studying the Bible. And not only this but we have Bible study software and websites that allow for us to easily search the Scriptures like a Google search! Through the use of technology (such as the printing press and the internet) God has enabled the translation and, thus, the preaching and reading of his Word throughout the world.

And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. And he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’?

A New Missions Conference

CROSS: For the global glory of Jesus Christ

As 2013 will be ending, in Louisville, KY a new student missions conference will be launching. And perhaps, in the mercy of God, more than just a conference will be launching, but a movement. See the details on their website and consider your part: attending yourself, taking students, encouraging a student to attend, helping provide for a student you know to attend this event.

Missions and the Kingdom of God

Published by: Anonymous

What's the relationship between Christian global missions and the Kingdom of God? That's a question for a book, not a blog post. But perhaps if we just looked at one text it would help bring some things together.

I asked my BCS mentors to look at my stacks of unread books (over 100) and select five for me to read first. Among them, I recently finished reading Mack Stiles’s, Marks of the Messenger, and here are 10 excerpts:

Faithfulness where You Are

Published by: Luke Humphrey
January 30, 2013

“What is the best way that I can prepare for missions?” 

This is a question that has been asked in some form or another by every person who has seriously considered cross-cultural gospel ministry. The way that someone answers this question will have significant impact on their future ministry. Fortunately, the answer is not as extraordinary as it may seem. In fact, it is quite ordinary: be faithful where you currently are.

Reflections on Pastor Bud’s Short Term Ministry Trip

Published by: Luke Humphrey
January 15, 2013

Pastor Bud Burk recently went on a short term ministry trip to Myanmar with a handful of others from Bethlehem. Since these short term trips can be really helpful in encouraging both those who are called to go to the nations and those who are called to send to the nations, I asked Pastor Bud to share his thoughts on a couple of questions concerning the trip.
