    Reuben Inwe

    Reuben Inwe

    Our interview with Reuben Inwe is a fascinating one. His own story of encountering the Lord on a bus in Nigeria, then being led to serve and plant a church in a specific city in the north of England, is both dramatic and impacting. However, it is his challenge to the church in the West to believe more thoroughly in the gospel itself that was the most hard-hitting! Sometimes it is good for us to have a mirror held up to us and to have to see ourselves through the eyes of someone from another culture! Do listen to Reuben’s interview with an open heart and ask yourself what you/we all can learn from his challenge and perspective.

    Michael Prest

    Michael Prest

    Michael Prest is the director of our partner, UFM Worldwide. In this thought-provoking interview, he shares his personal story and how that led him to his current role today at UFM, an organisation that works to foster and nurture the role of the sending church in raising up and supporting cross-cultural missionaries. Read Michael's excellent guest post on our blog - The Privilege of Being a Sending Church.

    This idea and principle is an integral part of our mission at FieldPartner. We have created resource maps (see 34:13) that demonstrate the relationship between the sending church and the field worker at each stage of their journey. Check out our Pre Field, On Field and Post Field resource maps, as they paint a picture of how the relationship between sending churches and field workers at each stage of the journey, with information and resources for both sides.

    Bev Gigney

    Bev Gigney

    Bev Gigney founded a children's home called Dove's Wings during her years serving in China, having had a clear call to go and work with children in that nation. Along her journey she experienced setbacks and tragedy, which sadly led to her having to leave the mission field very suddenly. An important part of her journey was her return, where she found the post-field life equally difficult, but can testify to God's faithfulness, and the way he has used her in this stage of her journey. We hope that Bev's story will inspire you, and for those who have had similar struggles, we hope it can encourage you.

    Joann Pittman

    Joann Pittman

    Joann Pittman was born as a 'Third Culture Kid' to missionary parents in Pakistan. But little did she know that during her childhood, seeds were being sown that led her to another nation that captured her heart: China. After many years of experience teaching there, Joann has now returned to the USA, where is the Vice President of Partnerships and China Engagement at ChinaSource, an excellent and reputable website that covers events in the nation from the perspective of the church, also acting as a community and resource to equip people.

    David and Vicki Frazier

    David and Vicki Frazier

    After a season of cross-cultural preparation and discernment, David and Vicki worked as missionaries for 20 years in Turkey before their return to the US. They have a strong desire to equip churches to send their missionaries well, with proper preparation and support which led them to create Equipping Servants International, as well as writing David's excellent and practical book: Mission Smart - 15 Critical Questions to Ask Before Launching Overseas.  In this insightful interview, they share their story and some of the wisdom they have acquired over many years on the field. It may be especially helpful for those considering cross-cultural mission for themselves.

    Special Episode | Working From a Place of Rest

    Special Episode | Working From a Place of Rest

    This special episode is a recording of a live event we hosted with Tony Horsfall on the topic of working from a place of rest. To watch the video recording of the event, visit fieldpartner.org/workfromrest.

    Tony looked at the important question: How can we joyfully sustain ministry over the long haul of life? The biggest mistake we can make in ministry is to try and work for God rather than work with God. Jesus himself shows us by his example how we can work in partnership with the Father.

    Tony served as a missionary with OMF in East Malaysia, and later headed up EQUIP, a missions training programme based in England. For a number of years, he was Pastoral Carer for MAF, visiting their teams in Africa on a regular basis. Tony has a God-given passion to help those in Christian service sustain themselves over the long haul of ministry. He is an author, retreat leader, mentor and friend. He has written ‘Working From a Place of Rest’ and ‘Rhythms of Grace’.
