The CEO's Vlog
As Christians, we are called to spread this Good News. Perhaps to you this call means becoming involved with missions. Here’s some advice from that historic night in Bethlehem to help you on your way.
Are you looking for your next mission in life? Whether you’re searching for a new career path or a volunteer opportunity that aligns with your values, MissionNext can help you find the perfect fit.
When I was growing up on a dairy farm, I was afraid of missionaries who visited our church. I feared getting too close to someone
“When I arrive on the mission field, I’ll be more consistent with my quiet times.” Have you ever thought that? I did, before I entered the field. We would agree that if Jesus spent time in prayer and communion with His Father, sometimes all night, we ought to do the same. However, Christians, whether missionaries or not, frequently confess that finding the minutes for a consistent quite time can be challenging.
While starting a new direction in missions may be important to you, I’m sure keeping your family protected, provided for, and intact in a world that tries to tear apart family values is at the top of your list of priorities. When God nudged me to consider missions, we were a very dysfunctional family.
Fears about joining the mission field are universal. While everyone’s missions journey looks different, many of their concerns or misconceptions are the same.
If you’re serving overseas, there are many potential diseases and dangers for your physical health on the mission field. It’s easy for fear to set it.
How do you find a mission agency that is similar in scope to your abilities, passion, location preference and interests? It is important to research any agency you might be considering. While every agency often has a specific focus, their actual ministry footprint can be very large.
When thinking of missionaries, many people think only of Christians who have taken up residence in some foreign country where the inhabitants most likely are unfamiliar with the Christian faith. However, every year thousands of Christians travel all over the world for periods of one week to six months to share the good news of the Gospel.
MissionNext would like to work with your organization to find the workers you’re looking for.
