Description

Project Vision

Many churches are wrestling to make sure they are doing "missions" well. Our vision for the Global Missions Toolbox is to equip and encourage local churches to prepare, train, send, and support missionaries who will bring the gospel to the nations. We believe that the Great Commission is primarily a call to the local churches, and we desire to provide valuable, practical tools to churches who want to do a great job of sending.

Project Summary

The Global Missions Toolbox (GMT) is a collection of resources for those who support global missions from home. The GMT curates and creates tools for those who serve by sending and supporting missionaries from their local church. The GMT is designed to provide resources to equip pastors, elders, missions committee members, and other missions-minded individuals in churches. The Global Missions Toolbox is a multi-agency initiative catalyzed by SEND Canada, and includes the Global Missions Podcast, an online community (Facebook), an online collection of practical resources, and the GoJournal.

Ministry Summary

The Global Missions Toolbox Team Leader will coordinate and facilitate the sharing of resources that are valuable to churches who want to do a great job of sending and supporting their missionaries. The Team Leader will oversee the production of the Global Missions Podcast, the production and order fulfillment of the GoJournal, and the curation and development of resources for Senders. The Team Leader will advance the communication and promotion of these materials.
