Are you part of a missions organization that desires to meaningfully and effectively engage in partnerships with local churches and address this paradigm shift? If so, join us for Sixteen:Fifteen’s Mission Agency Consultation as we help you consider these important questions…

  • How do churches perceive your missions organization?
  • How does your organization perceive churches?
  • Are you doing missions “for” churches instead of “with” churches?
  • Are you cultivating a pro-church culture?
  • Is it possible to connect what you do best to what churches do best?
  • Does your agency really know the Church in North America?

Since 1995, Sixteen:Fifteen has been mobilizing local churches to be central players and full partners in global missions. Our goal through interactive teaching and coaching sessions along with training tools is to help your agency deepen and strengthen partnerships with local churches for the global advance of the Gospel.

Mission Agency Consultation

There is a widespread missions paradigm shift occurring in the Church that is marked by a ground swell of local churches desiring a more active role in fulfilling the Great Commission than they have in the past.  Growing numbers of local churches no longer perceive missions simply as sending individuals and finances to mission organizations, they long to do missions in a way that is focused, that has lasting impact, and which bears their unique fingerprints. They are often no longer content merely to serve in support roles from a distance, instead they desire opportunities for active engagement.  While this paradigm shift represents a positive change, it presents challenges to many mission organizations that have yet to address these new local church expectations.

“Mission Agencies can no longer afford to do traditional missions better.  They must start thinking paradigmatically differently.” Author George Miley 
“Loving the Church, Blessing the Nations”

Kingdom Business Project

Free Webinar | Wed. July 12, 2017  |  12 Noon MT

Kingdom Business Project: An End-to-End Strategy for Growing the Underground Church in the Muslim WORLD

Webinar featuring Gordon Van Wechel & Eric Watt of RUN Ministries  

For more than 20 years an indigenous church has been quietly spreading in the remaining most restricted parts of the world. It is called the Antioch Family of Churches. For the past ten years RUN Ministries has been working with the leaders of this movement in the role of training, strategic planning, and financial support. Recognizing the capacity of Antioch to access the unengaged and unreached, other ministry organizations are now partnering with RUN to provide tools for evangelism and church growth. The resulting synergy is having a dramatic impact in the Muslim world.

Muslims in America

Free Webinar | Wed. June 21, 2017 |  12 Noon MT

Who are the Muslims in America?  Their Plan, Our Reaction

Webinar featuring Keith Swartley of Encountering the World of Islam

From our favorites media outlets, elected politicians and even our Christian leaders and church pastors, we’ve heard an increasingly noisy din of often confusing information about the growing Muslim community in America. In our world of contradictions, wild predictions and fast changing landscapes, how are we to know who are the Muslims in our neighborhood and what are their intentions. Join us as we attempt an honest and respectful conversation and conclude by asking “What kind of people should we be?” (2 Peter 3:11)
