Navigating the Seas of Change:

Learning from changing paradigms and internationalization today.

In 2003 Samuel Escobar wrote about global mission as being from everywhere to everyone (Escobar, The New Global Mission). Well over a decade later, Allen Yeh while assessing the centenary celebrations from Edinburgh 1910, reframed the idea as from everyone to everywhere. (Yeh, Polycentric Missiology). Today, global mission reflects these realities as well as the insights from Jay Matenga on Indigenous Mission (Matenga, Centring the Local).

Like the Apostle Paul’s call to Macedonia, A3 recently felt a nudge to work in Europe.

Not long ago, I received an amazing report from one of our Middle East partners… We have been working with them to equip leaders (mostly bi-vocational pastors) to walk deeper with God, grow in Christ-like character, multiply leaders and accelerate mission—usually in very creative ways!

We were training in the Middle East / North Africa (MENA) region last year and working with first-generation pastors and leaders. They were so encouraged by our faculty and mentors saying they had never experienced such rich, deep communal experiences like these.

Growing Optimism

Heading into 2024 I’m more optimistic than I’ve been in years. We are post-pandemic, coming out of a remarkable year of progress for A3 (see Memorable Year and Family update). We thank God for his faithfulness in sustaining us.

Now, we are looking toward what God has in store for us in the coming year.
