How We Serve

Evangelism Associate Carey Childrey got this encouraging word from a third-year seminary student:

“Your course from two years ago helped us and me very much, sir! We have used the evangelism training to lead 50 people to Christ at the . . . Engineering College in our outreach.”

Story Telling in Oral Cultures Jim and Arline Parris got this encouraging feedback during a Simply the Story training session with a team of Africans who go on international mission trips:

“This is so powerful! I can see how this will change my teaching and preaching.”

And from South Asia, an encouraged pastor writes to a Paraclete associate:

“When I would preach in the communities from the Bible there was so much opposition. I myself was beaten three times. Now that we are telling stories there is almost none of that. Now I feel safe.”

Appropriate Technology Introducing technology into mission work can be a two-edged sword. Associate Cliff Peters, teaches creativity and sensitivity as much as technologies. This African student understood:

“The man who has awakened my innovative and inventive potential! I thank you so much, Mr. Peters. May the Lord reward you greatly for your love, compassion and service. I can’t wait to meet you again someday.”

Emotional and Relational Health These topics are as crucial for missional workers as for anyone. We got this feedback from a missions pastor, about associate Gary Wittevrongel’s ministry to men:

“Gary loved, engaged, and trained us well. I felt safe, covered when appropriate, and he led me to deep, painful places well and back up excellently. My life will never be the same, and I am encouraged and challenged to love deeply, engage in strength and love all my life!”

Associates David and Debbie Bochman lead Aphesis training domestically and internationally. For many, the training is life-changing, as this attendee testifies:

“I would say that Aphesis is such a different approach to so many areas in life that even the church does not address – on relationships (especially with God) and others – that I feel that this is a turning point in my life.”
