Wayne Vanderwier

It seems impossible to believe that Overseas Instruction in Counseling is already a little more than 10 years old. When, in the Fall of 2005, Susie and I began to envision a ministry that would train pastors around the world in biblical sufficiency-based soul care, we never could have imagined the ways God would open doors of opportunity and expand the ministry we began in June, 2006.

The Blessing of Serving in Multiethnic Ministry

Nicolas Ellen

In this post Nicolas Ellen reminds us to make discipleship—rather than race or ethnicity—the focus of our private ministries of the Word. This is important as our world becomes “smaller” through increased travel and broader Internet-based communications. There are, of course, differences in cultures that we must keep in mind as we share the Scriptures with other people.

To that end, we encourage you to consider registering for the upcoming Global Summit in June. Visit the website at http://bccglobalsummit.org. Continue reading
