NEW! Pursuing Your Calling Virtual Community

You can develop the missional habits of a global worker. Our book, Pursuing Your Calling, can help! It will show you missional habits and how to apply them in your own context to prepare you for future ministry opportunities. Later this year, we’re hosting a series of monthly gatherings for people interested in pursuing God’s call to serve as global workers. Together, we’ll walk through Pursuing Your Calling. Begin advancing God’s Kingdom now by joining the Pursuing Your Calling Virtual Community.

Host a prayer vigil for the missionaries and global projects you sponsor. Encourage your members to pray at a certain time of day or a certain day of the week, or set aside a day for prayer and have people sign up for time slots.
