I want to recommend a good read for you by someone I’ve been following for several years now – Philip Evans. I love his vision statement: “Helping people transcend the influence of money in their lives”. He is helping people understand the difference between money and mammon and how to have a right relationship with money, the way God intended.
Not many are writing on this topic of mammon, but I consider it crucial to understand some of our hangups with “asking people for money”. This is one of the biggest barriers for those considering a full-time career in missions. The more we understand how we’ve been deceived to give power to money, the easier it will become to find freedom in obeying and trusting God to truly be our Provider.

It was nice to discover a website that has promoted the online course: Global Connections in Mission, or now called GC3. It’s fascinating to read their history – they’ve been promoting missions for more than 130 years! New Zealand does have quite a heritage of sending Gospel-spreaders around the world.
They have a great Resources section that’s worth checking out – click on Tools and you’ll find a goldmine! Enjoy…
The Beta version of the online course is now completed and available for anyone!
What started as an idea in the desert in Egypt almost 5 years ago is now a reality. I’m very thankful to Phil Leage for suggesting it and offering to host it on his site.
Please share this with anyone you know who is interested to raise their own financial support.
On June 1 Han made a Facebook page to link people to this website. You can find it here. Feel free to “Like” it and invite other people you know to Like it. Someone you know will be glad to know how they can get trained to form a team of ministry partners to live out God’s dreams.
March 19-23, 2018 at the YWAM Heidebeek training center in Heerde. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply. For all other workshops below email me for more info.
April 25-28, 2018 at YWAM Paisley, Scotland.
May 21-25, 2018 at YWAM Nuremburg, Germany.

Please note: We do not accept participants applying from outside of the European Union for the workshops in The Netherlands. It’s too difficult to get visas and it’s too short of a workshop to warrant the high cost to come.
We are making progress! I’m happy!
