Global Missions Engagement: Strategies to Change the World
There is a growing understanding among churches and mission agencies that the way we have approached global missions has to be reevaluated. Many missional efforts carried out under the banner of Christian compassion have resulted in creating dependency rather than empowerment for people in need. We want to create a culture of empowerment rather than organizational dependency.
Together we have an opportunity to equip and challenge hundreds of pastors and mission leaders to impact the world from a renewed perspective. We will provide valuable training tools coupled with clear action steps to mobilize a significant mission movement to accomplish more desirable results for Christ.
Through facilitating better coordination and efficiency among churches and mission agencies, we can partner to exponentially increase our ability to help change a world in desperate need. We will help leaders consider methodologies that create empowerment and Take a fresh look at holistic community development that focuses more on the strengths that reside in a community rather than only addressing the needs of an area.
We will highlight concepts that break the cycle of poverty:
- How to develop a Micro Enterprise, Micro Lending/Micro Banking program
- Engaging in Business as Mission
- Poverty Alleviation through Job Creation
- Strength-based Assessments
- Creating Sustainable Mission Projects
- Innovative Funding Strategies
