  1. Your Role in Sending

    Posted on October 22nd, 2014 by David Burnette

    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.

  2. New Kids App from Faith Comes By Hearing

    Posted on October 8th, 2014 by Jonathan

    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 the 2012 Multiply Gathering in San Francisco. View the whole Gathering HERE.

  4. 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.

    Posted on September 25th, 2014 by Jonathan

    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.

  6. John Piper Interviews David Platt

    Posted on September 18th, 2014 by Jonathan

    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.

  7. David Platt’s Personal Testimony

    Posted on September 1st, 2014 by Jonathan

    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.

  8. John Piper on Missions

    Posted on August 11th, 2014 by Jonathan

    At CROSS last year, Mark Dever asked John Piper about missions–what the term means, what the Bible says about it, how it impacts our marriages, how it affects our calling, and more. The video of that conversation is well worth a watch.

  9. Sermon Prep

    Posted on August 4th, 2014 by Jonathan

    From The Front Porch, Pastors Thabiti Anyabwile, Louis Love, and Tony Carter talk about their sermon preparation practices. They cover approaches, timelines, and specific steps. While they show that no two teachers operate in the same way, they also show that there are some non-negotiables in solid preaching . . . things to which these faithful pastors are committed.

    The Front Porch aims to be a place for conversations on biblical faithfulness in African-American churches and beyond.” Radical commends this website to you as an invaluable resource for all believers.
