December 27-30 – Urbana Conference – St. Louis, MO
This space is usually limited to events on the east coast from Virginia to Maine. However I am making an exception for the Urbana Conference as it is one of the most effective events for mobilizing North Americans for missions and it only happens once every three years. Click here to learn more.

Summer 2018 – InTents Apprenticeship – Lancaster, PA
Now recruiting mature believers age 18 or older who are open to exploring long-term service among unreached people groups. In May of 2019, a summer-long practical apprenticeship will be run for the first time on a farm in south-central Pennsylvania. This special group is being assembled for the first run of the InTents Program. The apprentices, called Growers, will live in tents alongside seasoned field workers. Living in tents is a metaphor for having lives that are ready to move with God as well as a simple and inexpensive way to live in community (Hebrews 11:9,10). This community will focus on devotion to Jesus, hands-on organic food production and marketing, and making disciples who make disciples. For more information reach out by email.
