      K. W. Moore

      Frontiers, Puyallup WA

      After graduating high school in Puyallup, WA, I spent a few years as a missionary with YWAM. During that time, my heart began to expand for church planting, and over ten years later through Perspectives God would bring about more vision and clarity to this desire. I'm currently involved with an organization who is committed to sending workers into unengaged Muslim people groups. In tandem with reaching unreached and unengaged Muslims, teaching and studying the Scriptures are a great passion of mine.

    • Lesson 10

      How Shall They Hear?

      Culture and intercultural communication of the gospel. Communicating the gospel with relevance at the worldview level helps avoid syncretism (blending of cultural error with God?s truth) and also enables powerful movements of the gospel. Sensitive missionaries will look for ways that God has preserved or prepared people to hear the gospel, often finding redemptive analogies for God's truth.

      Karen Pease

      Sunset Bible Church, Tacoma WA

      I have been "multi-cultural" for most of my life - from my childhood neighborhood in the California Bay Area to my college major (Intercultural Studies), which took me to China to serve as an English teacher for 6 years before returning to the States. Since then, God has opened up doors for ESL ministries at our church and in our community, and for ministry to Muslim women and their families. He is also giving me opportunities to mobilize & equip individual believers, churches, and non profits to reach beyond their comfort zones to befriend and share the love of Christ with everyone - no matter how "different" they seem.

    • Lesson 13

      The Spontaneous Multiplication of Churches

      Look beyond institutional features of churches to understand churches as dynamic movements of Christ Himself being followed. Such a view of churches as organic, living things opens up the practicality of seeing them multiply rapidly as movements and also flourish in society bearing the fruit of social transformation. Churches as counter-communities, acting as salt and light, bringing change to their cultures. How movements multiply by connecting with entire families and larger social structures.

      Edward Aw

      Community Vision International, Gilbert AZ

      Ed and Rachel have three thrusts to their ministry activities. (1) They train and coach church planters and pastors, helping them to raise up new leaders and reproduce their churches, resulting in transformed lives and communities. This includes many insights into making their ministries more sensitive to local cultures. (2) They are committed to practicing and guiding others in "tent-making", supporting themselves so that they are free to serve communities in areas of the world where authorities may be hostile and churches too weak to support them. (3) They are focused on accomplishing the above two in culturally relevant ways.
