We develop culturally relevant theological resources & train leaders on how to build healthy missional relationships and restore honor to all peoples by helping them understand the gospel through their own cultural lenses.
We care deeply about being the salt and light to a broken world and sharing the hope of God to communities in great need.
We can’t do this without a clear understanding of the gospel and what it means for us personally and relationally as we engage with others both within and outside of our local communities.
We desire to make theological, missiological, organizational, and pastoral training more accessible for the local church, both here and around the world.
We have spent over 30 years developing deep relationships of trust with our global partners by listening to and learning from them as they share the love of God with their communities.
We have used what we’ve learned to develop resources to both empower our indigenous partners as they foster healthy relationships within their own ministry contexts, as well as to train leaders here in the West as we engage in diverse communities and cross-cultural missions.
We create study guides, books, booklets, online curricula, and videos to help Christians gain new knowledge and skills in intercultural communication and cross-cultural relationships and partnerships.
Our purpose in developing these materials is to help the Global Church glorify God among all peoples and across all cultures.
- Our online curriculum “The Beauty of Partnership” helps you and your team gain new skills for healthy cross-cultural partnerships.
- Mission ONE’s resources in “Honor, Shame, and the Gospel” offer ways to explore culturally relevant and biblically faithful communication of the Good News of Jesus. Many people around the world have gained a greater sense that “the gospel speaks to my people,” rather than the feeling that it’s a foreign message from a Western culture.
- “The Ephesians 2 Gospel Project” is currently in process. We are developing resources for and with the global church—to address the thorny problem of group versus group conflict through the gospel of peace.
Mission ONE also organizes pastoral and marriage retreats for our partners from time to time as well as assists them in developing programs and systems that aim to achieve local sustainability.
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
