Round 1: Thursday 1.2

Workshop 1: “The Tricky Matter of Cross-Cultural Relationships”
Neal Cushman
Room 1

Few are those who accept the gospel after hearing it for the first time. Therefore, it stands to reason that effective cross-cultural workers would seek ways to give the good news many times to the same individuals. We might say, then, that evangelism works best when layered on a relationship. Yet cross-cultural relationships are fraught with problems, so how do we do this so as not to forfeit an opportunity to give the gospel?

Audio | Notes

Workshop 2: “Church Planting Movements: Gleaning the Good from a Missiological Fad”
*David
Room 2

Workshop 3: “The Scripture, the Gospel, and Poverty”
Ben Edwards
Room 3

Poverty is a reality that Christians cannot ignore, but myriads of questions arise around how Christians should respond to it. This workshop will explore Biblical teaching related to a proper perspective on poverty and wealth, biblical instruction related to ministering to the poor, and how the Gospel relates to ministry to the poor. The purpose of this survey is to lay a foundation on which to build a philosophy for ministry to and among the poor. Further issues for study will be mentioned, along with answers to common objections to ministry to the poor.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 4: “Persecution: A Mark of the Early and Contemporary Church”
Tim Aynes
Room 4

The persecution of believers is more than just the seed from which the ancient church sprouted. It is a current means God uses to purify his bride, add to his family, and testify of his worth and glory to the world. We would do well to go back and look at what our brothers and sisters of the early church endured and what many still endure today around the world. A brief walk in their shoes will challenge our materialism, temporal focus, and anemic witness. Be warned: conviction is sure to occur as we reflect on those “of whom the world was not worthy!”
Audio | PowerPoint

Workshop 5: “Discipleship: A Forgotten Essential in Church”
*R
Room 5

Workshop 6: “How I Turned the World Upside Down in 10 Days: Considerations for Profitable Short-term Mission Trips”
Jeremy Farmer
Room 7

Based on the speaker’s personal positive experience with short-term mission trips, this workshop seeks to draw general principles for consideration when planning short-term trips. Every short-term trip involves three parties: the short-termer, the missionary, and the nationals. When planning and engaging in short-term work, we must understand clearly both the potential and the limitations for blessing each of these parties, Specifically, we should view the short-termer himself as the primary target and beneficiary of the short-term mission trip.

Workshop 7: “Brazil: Church Planting in the Big Friendly ‘B’ in the BRIC Nations″
Jonathan Hutchins
Room 204

In 1557, John Calvin was the first to send a church planting team to Brazil from Geneva. Today, after several hundred years of evangelism Brazil is still the breeding grounds of religious syncretism and the prosperity Gospel. If you’re into the Four Spiritual Laws as a way of personal salvation you might relax and say it’s already evangelized. To the contrary, Brazil is still is in great need of Gospel centered church planting and the biblical ordination of pastors. Herein lies an important question, is conventional missions the future of the Great Commission in Brazil? Raising support to go to a country most consider evangelized will continue to be a challenge as churches cut missionary budgets. Brazil could become a creative access country simply for lack of interest. We will discuss our personal journey and experiences in Brazil and current missions’ opportunities.

Round 2: Thursday 1.2

Workshop 8: “Ministry in the Holy Land”
*Jim
Room 1

Workshop 9: “Language Learning
Jeremy Farmer
Room 2

This workshop presents a basic biblical theology of language, highlighting the necessity, difficulty, and possibility of crossing the language barrier for gospel proclamation. It is largely biographical in nature, drawing on the speaker’s experiences over the last 2½ years as he and his family have struggled to become proficient in the national language of Cambodia. Though particular attention will be given to language learning in contexts where language schools or qualified teachers are not available, the workshop will include numerous practical suggestions for language learning activities that will be useful in any language-learning context.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 10: “Missions: What is the Goal?”
David Doran
Room 3

How does a missionary know when he has accomplished the goal on the mission field? Without some clear idea of what we are aiming at we’ll never be able to tell if we are making good progress. This session will focus on the goal of missions by looking at the teaching of Jesus Christ, the example of the early church, and the statements of the Apostle Paul.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 11: “Hope in the Classroom”
Patty Hutchins
Room 4

A missionary wife has certain expectations of what the mission field would be like. Ten years later, and a reflection on the past, reveals that many of her expectations did not come to fruition. This missionary wife learned many lessons that only take place in the classroom of life with God as the teacher. In the end, and after much persistence, there are expectations renewed in the Hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Audio | Notes

Workshop 12: “Families Crossing Cultures”
*R
Room 5

Workshop 13: “From Conventional Missions to LEBAM (Lean Entrepreneur Business As Missions): A Low Cost Less Risky BAM Confronting the Prosperity Gospel and Laziness in the City”
Jonathan Hutchins
Room 7

Paul’s tentmaking missionary model and how it can be used in church planting in a heavily Marxist context trying to disciple old and new believers influenced by the social and prosperity gospels. This workshop will also consider Lean Business model principles from the ideas of Lean Manufacturing, Customer Development and other movements spurned from the book the “Lean Startup” by Eric Reis. We will discuss opportunities in ESL, Education, Sports and the Specialty Coffee Markets around the world.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 14: “Worldview Evangelism”
Ben Edwards
Room 204

We want to participate in the Great Commission. Often, however, we find it easier to support those who go oversees than to share the gospel with those across the street. Sometimes we are afraid to say something because we are not sure how to start. However, another major issue we have is we do not know where to go once we have started. This workshop will give some direction in sharing the gospel in our world today.

Round 3: Thursday 1.2

Workshop 15: “Releasing Your Family to Impact the World”
Carl Martin
Room 1

How do we go about building our homes and families to have an impact on the world? Working from the context of a family that has been intentionally involved in missionary work for three generations, we want to explore ways to encourage the emerging generation of students to view their family as a primary means for impacting the world for Christ.
Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 16: “A Biblical View of Womanhood for All Cultures”
Amy Johnson
Room 2

So I was created female? What’s the big deal? Does that really define who I am and determine what I should do with my life? In some cultures being female means you are considered property, you can’t get an education, drive a car, etc. In other cultures all differences between male and female are rapidly being erased leading to traditional role reversals and same gender marriages. In this workshop we will take a thorough look at what God says about His purpose and design in creating two specific genders and how that plays out in your everyday life.

Audio | Notes

Workshop 17: The Aucan 5: Lessons in Leadership
Brian Trainer
Room 3
Audio | PowerPoint

Workshop 18: “Disciple-Making: Simple Math…But Hard Work”
Phil Peterson
Room 4

The command of Jesus in Matthew 28 is clear: “Make disciples.” Throughout the book of Acts we see the mathematical terms, added and multiplied, applied to the number of the disciples. But this did not just happen. There was a process and it demanded obedience and diligence on the part of the disciple-makers. So, what exactly is a disciple? And what is the process of making disciples?

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 19: “Give of Your Best to the Master: The Life and Lessons of Adoniram Judson, Missionary to Burma”
Pearson Johnson
Room 5

Adoniram Judson lived from 1788 to 1850 and is best known as America’s first foreign missionary. He evidenced unusual commitment and perseverance, believing truly that “To live is Christ and to die is gain.” In this workshop, we will explore the life and lessons of Judson and seek, by God’s grace, to apply them to our lives.

Audio | Notes

Workshop 20: “Somewhere Out There, I’ll Find My Mission Field”
*David
Room 7

Workshop 21: “What’s All this Talk About ‘Contextualization?’ I Just Want to Preach the Gospel!″
Kevin Oberlin
Room 204

Is contextualization simply a fancy buzz word thrown around by missiologists? What does the word mean? If too much contextualization leads to syncretism or the confusion of the gospel with another’s culture, wouldn’t it be better to avoid contextualizing altogether? This workshop will discuss a brief history of contextualization before examining possible abuses and suggesting a proper approach to this very important topic.

Round 4: Friday 1.3

Workshop 22: “The Great Commission and Missional Commitment”
Carl Martin
Room 1

In recent years the new terms for fulfilling the Great Commission have become more common. The term MISSIONAL has become the in term for ministries wishing to be considered on the “cutting edge.” Are we simply talking about the same subject by different names? Utilizing the 2013 book by those who initiated this term, reformed means missional, we will see what they have to say from their context and attempt to draw conclusions for our own responses.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 23: “Must a Missionary be a Church Planter? A Look at Definitions and Roles”
Brian Trainer
Room 2

Many churches today will only financially support individuals who desire to serve overseas as church planters. Their reasoning is based upon a Biblical and a historical principle. Biblically, the Scriptures clearly teach that the local church is the theological and practical centerpiece in this dispensation. Historically, even well-meaning para-church organizations eventually lose their local church moorings and drift into autonomous groups. Thus, some will state that a true “missionary” follows Paul’s model as a church-planter. The purpose of this study is to survey the content, goal, and scope of Paul’s ministry. The goal is to consider whether an individual can be a missionary, fulfilling the gospel mandate, without directly being a church planter. Do support ministries have a role, and if so, how should they be defined?

Audio | Notes

Workshop 24: “Short-Term Missions: Toward Greater Cultural Awareness”
Kevin Oberlin
Room 3

About 2 million US church members will go on short-term mission trips this year. While short-term teams can be effective, is there not a far greater chance that a short-term missionary might leave a foreign culture, not perceiving that his/her time on the field was only successful from his/her vantage? What are best practices in short-term missions? How can individuals and teams cultivate greater cultural awareness for effective short-term ministry?

Audio | Notes

Workshop 25: “Contemporary Missiological Developments and Trends”
*R
Room 4

Workshop 26: “The Power of Godly Ministry Partnerships”
David Doran
Room 5

Fulfilling the Great Commission calls for cooperative effort. That kind of effort is demonstrated by Paul’s partnership with the churches that he planted. In this workshop we will look at Paul’s partnership with the Philippians and Corinthians in order to better understand the boundaries, nature, and purpose of gospel partnerships.

Notes

Workshop 27: “Pray, Meet People, and Tell Them About Jesus”
*David
Room 7

Workshop 28: “Jesus Does Discipleship: Getting Back to the Basics of Jesus’ Model”
Jonathan Hutchins
Room 204

In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus shows us his model for simple discipleship. We will discover five marks of Jesus’ discipleship. It begins at its foundation with the biblical premise of human depravity. When you allow Jesus to create new life in the church through His Word you are relieved from man-centered, personality driven ministry and idolatrous burnout. Furthermore, Gospel centered good works and acts of service come forth from true disciples as they are taught to be salt and light by Jesus. The obedience that the Gospel demands and the abundant ongoing fellowship with Jesus through the Spirit produces the fruit of churches that edify and multiply themselves in love.

Round 5: Friday 1.3

Workshop 29: “Initiative or Brazenness?”
Neal Cushman
Room 1

Without the quality of initiative, a missionary will seldom succeed. But if he approaches the ministry in a brazen manner, he will damage the work. What should one do? Step one: figure out what initiative is. Step two: seek opportunities to develop it in preparation for missionary service.

Audio | Notes

Workshop 30: “Islamic Worldview and New Believers”
*Jim
Room 2

Workshop 31: “Storytelling in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Church Planting”
*R
Room 3

Workshop 32: “Educational Opportunities on the Mission Field”
Patty Hutchins
Room 4

Exploring opportunities around the world to be involved in the lives of people and families through education. Learning to be creative and using your personal interests and gifts to open doors into your community with the goal of presenting the Hope of the true gospel.

Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 33: “Gospel Ministry in Cambodia”
Jeremy Farmer
Room 5
This workshop briefly summarizes the history of the church in Cambodia, addresses selected cultural and religious issues facing both the missionary and the national church, and concludes with a brief outline of the speaker’s ministry vision for Cambodia and Southeast Asia generally. Special attention will be given to communicating the gospel to animistic peoples, as well as the role of biblical theology in pioneer evangelism and first-generation leadership training.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 34: “Consider Tentmaking in Spite of its Challenges”
Dave McNamara
Room 7

We live in an important time with new challenges for the advance of the Gospel. Tentmaking is a time-proven and biblical tool, adopted by the Apostle Paul, the first missionary to integrate secular work and ministry. At this workshop, we will explore both the practical reasons and emerging “strategic” reasons to become a tentmaker: Practical, or tactical as providing needed financial support and cultural immersion; “Strategic” as a robust platform for on-going “cross-cultural evangelism” through redemptive relationships leading to entrenched church plants.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint | Resources: 2012 Tentmaking Survey

Workshop 35: “Partners for the Cause: The Church-Missionary Relationship”
Pearson Johnson
Room 204

Churches and Missionaries are called by God to partner for the sake of the spread of the Gospel, but church-missionary relationships are fraught with unique challenges. Whether you are planning to be a sender or missionary, this workshop will help you navigate these challenges for effective long-term ministry.

Round 6: Friday 1.3

Workshop 36: “Is Receptivity Important in Choosing a Mission Field?”
Neal Cushman
Room 1

Some have suggested that we should find out where God is at work in the world, and then join him in the work on that field. Others have argued that places like Muslim cultures are not ready to receive the gospel, so we should wait until they are open. What does the Bible say about this topic? How do resistant mission fields fit our strategy for fulfilling the Great Commission?

Audio | Notes

Workshop 37: “1 Corinthians 8-10: A Paradigm for Decision Making”
Brian Trainer
Room 2

This workshop will examine the cultural issues facing the Corinthian church, Paul’s instructions to them, and the appropriate implications we can draw as we navigate our cultural milieu.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 38: “The Word of God vs. the Crucifix, the Crescent, Communism, and Garlic”

*David
Room 3

Workshop 39: “First-gen Faithful Men”
Jeremy Farmer
Room 4

This workshop seeks to set forth a biblically-based vision for pastoral education for the first generation rural church using the Ratanakiri Bible School (RBS) as a model. RBS was founded in 2000 in response to the sudden birth and growth of numerous churches among 5 different language groups in northeast Cambodia. Since then, the school has served these churches by providing pastoral training and mutual encouragement. This workshop will give special attention to the role of biblical theology in pioneer evangelism and first-generation leadership training, as well as to various issues of cross-cultural ministry.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 40: “Improve your C.Q. (‘Cultural Intelligence’) Score”
Kevin Oberlin
Room 5

You might already be proud of your I.Q. and perhaps even wow your friends by an astounding E.Q. (emotional intelligence), but who would of thought there is such a thing as C.Q.? C.Q. is defined as “the capacity of functioning effectively in a variety of national, ethnic, and organizational cultures” (CIC). What are the predictors saying about your cross-cultural success? Proper measurement of one’s C.Q. will indicate how one will succeed internationally and in multicultural domestic contexts. Come learn how C.Q. is measured and how you can improve your own C.Q.

Audio | Notes

Workshop 41: “Urban Hope: Enjoying God’s Sovereign Mercy in a Church in the City″
Jonathan Hutchins
Room 7

If Jesus promised to build His church isn’t he already doing what he pleases in the city? Mobilize on your knees in humble repentance and faith, position yourself in the city, enjoy God, love mercy, your work, and people at every moment, know His Word, the Gospel, the culture, the city itself. God will lead you to risk everything, to reach everywhere, and to release everyone for His glory.

Audio | Notes | PowerPoint

Workshop 42: “Scandinavia: Northern Darkness”
Phillip Peterson
Room 204

In spite of its spectacular midnight sun and brilliant northern lights, Sweden is a land a great darkness… spiritually. While “Christian” in culture, she is predominantly atheistic in belief and practice. This is also true of its neighbors, Denmark and Norway. Is there any hope? Or is it simply a “missionary graveyard?”
