  1. Serving with Eyes Wide Open: Doing Short-Term Missions with Cultural Intelligence by David Livermore

    More than one million people participate in short-term mission projects outside of North America every year–and millions more are involved in domestic cross-cultural missions right here at home. This is encouraging news. But the work is not done. There are weaknesses in our approach and practice. And these volunteers need resources to help them prepare for effective cross-cultural engagement.

    Serving with Eyes Wide Open helps Christians understand the changing face of Christianity and how that affects short-term missions. In three parts, author David A. Livermore will take a broad look at what the twenty-first-century church is doing on the mission field, the assumptions people make about Christianity, and what it takes to adapt effectively to new cultural contexts. Perfect for all who engage in short-term missions trips–either at home or abroad–Serving with Eyes Wide Open will equip readers to serve more sensitively.


    I appreciate the resources provided here to help us read and be well equiped . Please, I am looking for 10 journal references that would enable write about ”Training and assisting Bible workors for effective Church planting and nurturing”. Thanks
