Relational turmoil is undermining the witness of Christians all around the world.
Family strife and divorce, church splits, workplace conflict, lawsuits between Christians, and clashes with neighbors of other faiths weaken our credibility and slow the advance of Christâ€™s kingdom.
You can help us reduce this turmoil and strengthen the church by supporting our three core strategies for taking relational wisdom to Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe.
First, we are putting boots on the ground overseas to teach relational wisdom and biblical peacemaking. As a result of my recent trip to Australia, thirty-two people are enrolled in our training programs â€œDown Under.â€
Iâ€™m scheduled to fly to Poland in May with Chip Zimmer, the newest consultant on our professional team. We will speak at the European Leadership Forum, which will gather 700 Christian leaders from throughout Europe.
Weâ€™ve also been invited to Cape Town in August to train 400 Christian attorneys and pastors brought together from throughout Africa by Advocates International.
Second, we are building global partnerships with organizations to help them weave relational wisdom into their networks. These groups include denominational missions organizations as well as ministries like Bible Study Fellowship, New Tribes Mission, the Association of Christian Schools International, and Acts 29 Church Planting Network.
We are training instructors within each ministry who can then work together to build an in-house capacity for teaching and applying relational wisdom throughout their organizations.
Third, we are developing a new online RW Academyâ„¢ to better serve both our U.S. and international friends. It will be hosted by Pathwright, an innovative learning management system that integrates adult learning methodology (videos, case studies, quizzes, essays, discussion forums, etc.) so that students engage the material in an interactive, transformative process.
Once our foundational courses are uploaded, we plan to develop interactive courses on marriage, parenting, peacemaking, church leadership, workplace dynamics, witnessing, missions and other life applications.
Our global strategy will require $65,000 of new funds this year. If youâ€™d like to help reduce the amount of relational turmoil in the worldâ€”and strengthen the credibility, witness and influence of Christians in the U.S. and overseasâ€”please make a generous donation or monthly pledge today.
Thank you for your support!
