Our Own Recalibration

by David Godzwa Life lends itself to a certain routine. Nature has its seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter. Communities come together at prescribed dates to celebrate, to worship, and to remember. Individuals search for balance and productivity through rituals and habits. When things function well, there’s benefit. For the […]

Supernatural Discipleship

by Tara Kenyon As ministers, educators, and leaders, we frequently utilize the terms “mentoring” and “discipleship” somewhat interchangeably to describe the activity of sharing spiritual wisdom or information gleaned through study and experience.

Teaching Cross-Culturally

As a brand new and very green missionary, having only recently arrived in the country of my calling after the typical 18 months of deputation and year of language school, I was anxious to jump with both feet into the ministry that God had called me to. Then, my area […]

Being Your Best in 2016

What is our focus?

by Rocky Grams What is our focus as missionary educators?  Is it merely survival?  Is it a “don’t rock the boat” goal of merely getting by, maintaining the status quo? Do we have a focus?   Does “Jack of all trades, master of none” apply to us?  Or in Spanish:  […]

Teaching for Transferability

Teachers spend many hours planning lessons for the classroom. They make outlines, note main points and construct their lectures to be sure they “tell” the students all the important information assuming that the students will diligently take notes and learn the material. To determine if the students learn the material the teachers plan well written examinations. So what? After the exam what then? What becomes of the learning? Will the students remember the material? Should the students remember the material? What was the purpose for teaching? Whoever thinks about after the class—what then?

The Debacle of Lot’s Daughters: Consequences of a Collapsed Worldview

A worldview is more than just seeing the world. It is the conceptual framework through which one views the world, no matter where the person who holds it has traveled or lived. When people do not have a coherent worldview, they compartmentalize their lives and separate their spiritual life from other elements of life. Even ministers of the Gospel can find themselves living one way at church and another way at home. A unified, coherent worldview ought to guide our thinking about all things.

“Live Dead”, “Global Initiative”, and ACLAME?

“Live Dead”? What does that mean? Global Initiative? UPG? What does the Arab World and East Africa have to do with ACLAME, or with me, an LAC missionary educator? Why would I, a Bible School teacher and professor of ISUM, want to look up these internet sites and study about teams going out to pioneer missions among those that have never heard of Jesus? Does God still call some to renounce their lives and go, no matter what the cost? In other words, to “Live Dead”? What does LAC have to do with missionaries that are willing to die for Jesus in lands where the church does not exist? What is my involvement with those who will go where “the conditions are harsh, fierce and lonely”?

The Shovel-Ready Kingdom

I just started teaching on the gifts of the Spirit. This week I walked my congregation through Romans 12:6-8, the gist of which could be summarized in the Nike slogan: “Just do it!” Someone commented the next day that what I really need for the congregation is a good cattle prod, but I seriously doubt that my church would tolerate that kind of motivation from its pastor.

But what will it take? The kingdom of God offers “shovel ready” opportunities for God’s people.
