    Nathan Sloan on the Sacrifice of Sending

    The Biblical Way to Raise Support During Financial Crisis

    The Biblical Way to Raise Support During Financial Crisis

    Let’s admit it: ministry depends on money. But ministry partnership development, deputation, or raising missionary support were already hard enough.

How can missionaries connect with partners and churches and maintain funding in a way that is good, decent, and biblical? Jason Ruch […]

    When the Church Can’t Gather: Pandemics, Persecution, and Worship on the Mission Field

Best Missions Podcast

I can’t say enough amazing things about this podcast. I have recently been convicted about missions and the imbalance of money and missionaries being sent to the unreached vs the reached. We are interested in helping to change the culture within our local church and bring the gospel to the nations. This podcast is helping equip us to do that. It’s balanced and makes me think hard about the issues and the task we’re facing. Just well done straight to the point content packed with great interviews. Thank you!
