Seeing the Unseen

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase the unseen? Perhaps like most people, you think about people who are hidden from society: victims of human trafficking or vulnerable children. We know these people are out there and we would help them in their plight if only we could see them.

In this fast-paced world, adult leaders need to not only model gratitude for those who are often unseen but also actively lead young people in serving those who serve.

Encouraging the "Thanks" in Thanksgiving

I love this time of year. The leaves turn many shades of beautiful, people wrap themselves in comfortable sweaters, and something about the air feels different as it turns crisp and cool. The fall season sets itself apart in beauty and the promise of something new.

Sue* knew her husband was dying. She had cared for him for months. She and her husband were both believers in the Lord Jesus, strong in their faith, and witnesses to all in his final days. They had discussed death and the arrangements for his funeral.

Face to Face: Use Technology to Connect Your Kids to Missionaries

When You Pray, the Creator of the World Hears You

During the seasons of my life I lived on the missions field, I would send home lengthy, story-filled, decorated newsletters telling my friends all the ways they could pray. Sometimes as I would type these emails, I would type through tears for the experiences I was facing as well as the heart I was asking them to pray for—I needed those prayers.

How to Add Missions to What You Are Already Doing

Students walking together

If you survey the average churchgoer to ask if their church is involved in missions, it is safe to assume that many are. Some would respond that they travel around the world to share God’s love, and others would say they give to various mission offerings.

Missions discipleship is vital for the spiritual development of students. Many churches already have full schedules for their students, so leaders need to find creative ways to add missions discipleship into our regular programming.
