The IMB has made David Platt’s below message widely available as a tool for mobilizing churches to pray, give, and go to the nations. If your church or small group is looking for a good way to encourage participation in missions, giving and going, consider this free resource — it’s designed to do just that.
For additional global missions offering resources, visit the IMB website.
In the video below, David Platt and Francis Chan encourage pastors to lead their local churches in making disciples. Before encouraging their church members in this way, they must prioritize disciple making in their own life. Far from being just another thing to check off their already-too-long-lists, when they give themselves to personally making disciples, true peace will follow.
To utilize the Multiply material mentioned in the video, go to MultiplyMovement.com and click on the Material tab. You can purchase hard copies of the material wherever books are sold.

Last month, David Platt was able to speak at the Ethics and Religious Liberty National Conference. The conference theme was The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage. It effectively helped Christian think through an appropriate response to the growing trend toward homosexuality while holding firm to a biblical view of marriage. You can view all of the talks HERE. You won’t regret it. Below is David’s message.

David Platt encourages you to consider how you might be involved in reaching those who have never heard the gospel, whether that’s by going or giving. Reaching the unreached is at the heart of the mission of the IMB.
Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks and months as we highlight a number of practical and creative ways you can participate in giving. Your giving will go directly to help support IMB workers who are taking the gospel to the ends of the earth. You can give by going here.

Many of you probably have the Bible.is app on your phone. If not, you might consider getting it. Totally free of charge, it features audio, video, and over 1,500 Bible translations!
Most of you probably don’t have Bible.is KIDZ . . . and you should definitely consider getting it. Also totally free of charge, it engages children with Scriptural truths in fun and interactive ways.
Here’s a short video that gives you an idea of how it might work:
This is just another great resource from Faith Comes By Hearing, and organization whose mission is “to record and use heart-language Audio Bibles to bring His church together and make disciples from every nation, tribe, language, and people.” They are quick to point out that 50% of the world’s population is illiterate, rendering written translations of the Bible ineffective for a HUGE number of people. Their Bible.is app features over 1,500 languages, but they continue to work hard to add to the 844 languages in which they have audio recordings of Scripture.
Take advantage of these incredible resources–download Bible.is, Bible.is KIDZ, and the Deaf Bible. Then check out all the great work that Faith Comes By Hearing does to reach the nations with the Word of God.

From Open Doors, may this serve as a healthy reminder that church bombings and Boko Haram kidnappings should not be viewed simply as intriguing headlines. They are real trials faced by real Christians just like you and me.
The International Day of Prayer (IDOP) for persecuted Christians is coming up, and Open Doors is hosting a free, interactive webcast. If you want to join in on November 1 and 2, RSVP here. But don’t wait to begin praying for the persecuted church. Let the stories from Nigeria remind you that, in many places around the world, hostility toward believers is real. And it’s happening now.

To acquaint (or re-acquaint) yourself with David Platt’s teaching on missions, here is a collection of videos in which he talks about different aspects of it. While these videos do not offer a comprehensive theology of missions, we hope they will compel you to go to God in his Word and to the lost in the world.

Several years ago, John Piper sat down with David Platt to ask him some questions about missions and his heart for the unreached. This 30 minute video gives a great glimpse into who David is and what he’s about.

In Ephesians, Paul tells us that “even when we were dead in our trespasses, [God] made us alive together with Christ” (Eph 2:5). Going from death to life is at the core of every conversion story, and in the sense that there is certainly no such thing as a boring resurrection, no one has a boring testimony. Still, some transformations are more dramatic than others. And while it can easily seem that God’s grace is more profound in the saving of a Paul-former-Saul than it is in the saving of a scripturally-reared-Timothy (2 Tim 3:15), this is not the case. Boring testimonies are boring because God’s graciously made them that way (so they aren’t really boring at all).
In the video below, David Platt describes the amazing grace of such a testimony as he gives glory to God for a family and church that led him to Christ as a child.
