Nations Foundation - Missions Media & Journalism

When you listen to this podcast, we want you to totally lose your traditional view of missions, and think of it in a whole new way! This episode paints the picture of a group of “creatives” who share how God is using others around the world to spread God’s love and message in amazing ways. Missions is not always about planting churches in the jungle, running an orphanage, constructions work or medical/dental trips. Listen in today to hear about this group of story-tellers doing what they can to spread the Good News in creative ways.

During our recent trip to Budapest, Hungary, we had the opportunity to visit with 2 missions couple to ask them about what it’s like being missionaries overseas. When it comes to ministry work overseas as Americans, there are so many misconceptions about what life is like. During this episode of the podcast, we ask what it’s like raising a family, being away from family in the States, and what ministry in general is like. PLUS, since we were in Budapest during the European Refugee Crisis, we had the opportunity to minister alongside Hungarian Nationals to families, handing out food and blankets, and be part of ministering to families fleeing a war-torn nation in search of peace for their families.

The Growth of a Seed

For new life and growth to happen, literally seeds have to separate from the plant and die. And in that dying of self is where God allows supernatural life to happen — but that only occurs in the right season and at the right time and right conditions. Outside of those circumstances when the seed is brought before it’s time, it will not thrive. It only succeeds when allowed to in the conditions God ordained, not what we force otherwise. What opportunities is God showing you?

Apprentice Discipleship

We are not only called to evangelize, we are called to disciple. This is a much deeper relationship than just sharing the gospel. And if you disciple others, you will most likely get hurt … understand that if you are going to be a leader, you are going to have to be okay with that. Being vulnerable tears down our defenses. We first have to come to the place where we are vulnerable with God before we can ever be open with people.

The Mission Field Around You

A lot of Christians think this scripture is only for the “missionaries” which is true, because we are all called to be missionaries! We are all called to bring the gospel, we are all called to make disciples, we are all called to teach people how to follow Christ.

Holding Ears and Not Listening to God's leading

So many Christians think “the calling” is this big thing where we hear the voice of the Lord telling us to be an evangelist, or a pastor, or a missionary.
