Setting Aside Tradition to
Pursue Effective Ministry
Thursday, Aug 29th, 7-8:30 pm (CDT)

Most of us would say we focus on the Bible, but it’s surprising how often traditions sneak into our strategies for reaching the lost. As we seek to see movements of disciples who reproduce disciples, what are some of the default methods or paradigms that need to change? What does the Bible actually say about making disciples?

Many fruitful disciples around the world first went through this same process of re-evaluating their assumptions and simply doing what the Bible says. We trust this Nugget will help you be more fruitful, too!

Once every quarter, we highlight the unique stories of some of Beyond’s Missionaries. From their initial calling, preparation and launch onto the field, we hear how they dealt with their doubts and fears, feelings of inadequacy, and their ultimate obedience in their journey to the field. 

Steve and Mary Jo started following Christ in their early 30’s and quickly realized that their lives were not their own. At that time they were aware of missions and financially and prayerfully supported missions, but never thought they would be the ones to go. After decades of praying this simple prayer – “Lord make us teachable,” Steve and Mary Jo are now living out their latter years among the unreached.

We invite you to hear the remarkable story of how God called Steve and Mary Jo to offer this season of their lives to Him, and trust that He could use them for His glory, no matter their stage in life.

The Necessity of Prayer in Missions
Thursday, Sept 12, 7-8:30 pm (CDT)

We all know prayer is important, but many times our first response is to try to do something ourselves, rather than committing the situation to God in prayer and letting Him work. A movement of disciples who reproduce and transform their society is a huge, God-sized vision, that only God can accomplish. In this Nugget we will examine the role of prayer in movements, and share strategies for increasing the quality and quantity of our prayers.

Phase 1 Equipping

Phase 1  is an excellent way to “try it out”: to see disciple making movement (DMM) principles modeled and learn by doing.

For those that can’t relocate to an in-person Phase 1 hub city, you can begin an online disciple making movement (DMM) training. The online group would miss out on the in-person interaction that Phase 1 offers but participants in the online DMM training will be encouraged to get a group of friends to join you as you implement the principles you will be taught with friends.
