Jun 2, 2011 Dr. Rex Rogers will encourage us with how God is using satellite television across the Middle East and North Africa. The SAT-7 staff produces over 80% of SAT-7 programs in the Middle East with local Middle east Christians in a wide variety of Biblically based, culturally sensitive and relevant programming that speaks to the spiritual and physical needs of the viewers and to the most important social issues of the region. Programs are non-political and non-partisan; they are not aimed at any one country or religious denomination, nor do they attack any religion or belief. SAT-7’s message of Jesus’ unconditional love and forgiveness directly counters the messages of violence and martyrdom that are seen on other local channels.  Visit and  for more information.
May 5, 2011 Training ... one of the key ingredients to mobilizing! Workers for the harvest need to be trained before beginning cross-cultural ministry assignments around the world, or even right here. Various choices ranging from agency training programs to seminaries exist, but recently another option to supplement the equipping of missionaries has begun to be utilized more. Church-based training provides a unique environment for the practical, mentoring-oriented kind of preparation needed to see Biblical community begun in other cultures. We will discuss this topic, and provide an overview of two such church-based training programs being offered right here in the Metroplex. Cindy Wiles of First Baptist Church Arlington and Don Beacham of Grace Community Church will be sharing. Hope Coffee
