    Is The Commission Still Great?

    On this episode of the Mission Minded Podcast we are joined by Steve Richardson, president of Pioneers-USA.

Steve and his wife, Arlene, also spent eleven years planting churches among an unreached people group in Southeast Asia.
    On todays podcast we discuss Steves new book IS THE COMMISSION STILL GREAT? Steve uses stories from Scripture, history, and his own ministry experience to impart timely lessons on modern missions.

    Honor, Shame, and the Gospel

    Honor, Shame, and the Gospel

    On this episode of Mission Minded we are joined by Christopher Flanders and Werner Mischke, authors of the book Honor, Shame, and The Gospel. 
    Christians engaged in communicating the gospel navigate a challenging tension: faithfulness to God’s ancient, revealed Word—and relevance to the local, current social context. What if there was a lens or paradigm offering both? Understanding the Bible—particularly the gospel—through the ancient cultural “language” of honor-shame offers believers this double blessing. An honorific gospel offers new points of resonance with communities where shame and honor are critical values, including most unreached peoples.  
    In Honor, Shame, and the Gospel, over a dozen practitioners and scholars from diverse contexts and fields add to the ongoing conversation around the theological and missiological implications of an honorific gospel. Eight illuminating case studies explore ways to make disciples in a diversity of social contexts—for example, East Asian rural, Middle Eastern refugee, African tribal, and Western secular urban.
    Honor, Shame, and the Gospel provides valuable resources to impact the ministry efforts of the church, locally and globally. Linked with its ancient honor-shame cultural roots, the gospel, paradoxically, is ever new—offering fresh wisdom to Christian leaders and optimism to the church for our quest to expand Christ’s kingdom and serve the worldwide mission of God.

The Real Deal

I’ve followed ITEC for several years and have visited their facility. I can attest that they are “the real deal” when it comes to having a heart for missions. I’ve enjoyed these podcasts and it has helped me think of ways on how to apply “the Great Commission” in my life.
Thank you for these podcasts and for the many ways you continue to train and equip us!
