At the dawn of the third millennium two kinds of churches fill the Western landscape: stuck and unstuck. Most Protestant congregations are stuck in the muck and mire of their institutions with little or no movement toward joining Jesus on the mission field. To these "Controllers," faithfulness means supporting their church and keeping it open. For churches to be faithful to their God-given mission, they need Dreamers who are freed from their slavery to their institutions, freed to live for others on the mission field, and emancipated to function in a constantly changing world. The same can be said for denominations. This book focuses on how to place disciple - making at the core of a church's identity. He describes four spheres of congregational culture, and he shows how the Dreams can thaw their congregation by using Nine Unfreezing Moves that will unstick any church.

Headed to inner-city America? Appalachia? A border shantytown? Overseas? Wherever your destination, the Mission Trip Prep Kit contains all you need to prepare your students for an unforgettable cross-cultural experience - and tools to debrief them after they've returned to their worlds.

In this leader's guide, you'll receive not only the rationale, the how, and the logistics of planning and pulling off a missions trip, but, four pre-trip teaching sessions that will help your students:

  • Assess their expectations, their fears, their motivations
  • Adjust their perceptions of the culture they'll be working in
  • Improve their emotional and spiritual stamina for living for a week or a month in a very different world from their own
  • Practice the skills and attitudes (teamwork, servanthood, Christ-centeredness) they'll need for a missions trip
And to make sure your trip's goals are accomplished and the benefits stick around for the long haul, you'll also receive two post-trip sessions that will help you debrief your students, ease them back into their own worlds, celebrate with them, and make missions and ministry part of their everyday lives with Jesus.

What's more, in these pre- and post-trip teaching sessions are a variety of activities, processing points, creative prayer ideas, take-home applications, Bible studies relevant to missions trips, talk outlines that both instruct and inspire, and lots of sessions options you can tailor to your own high schoolers or middle schoolers.

Most of us would rather have a root canal than ask for money. Raising support is one of the most difficult challenges facing Christians in ministry. Fears of rejection, concerns about biblical validity, feelings of not being deserving, anxiety about limited resources can all block us from obtaining the means to fulfill our calling. Getting Sent both affirms that God uses the Christian community to send us into ministry and demystifies the process. The relational strategy in this book has proven valuable for those who serve Christ on campus, in the city or in other special ministries at home or abroad. It is not necessarily the quickest approach to raising money, but it is the most lasting and fulfilling for those who give and receive.
