Ministering to the Unreached at Home and Abroad

Ministering to the Unreached at Home and Abroad

Our guest on the podcast today is Grant Haynes. Grant and his wife Jennifer founded Global Frontier Missions in 2000 serving among unreached people groups in southern Mexico. The ministry began to grow over the years and God expanded their vision to not only reach the lost in Mexico, but to be used by God to raise up laborers to serve among the remaining 7,000+ ethnic groups worldwide that are still considered unreached with the Gospel. He is currently based out of Clarkston, Georgia, ministering to the many refugees being relocated to the United States. He is encouraging others to join in by providing missionary training resources and opportunities for Christians seeking to fulfill the Great Commission.

Using the Tools God Has Given You

Thanks for joining us for this episode of the Mission Minded Podcast. Our goal is to bring you conversations on outside the box thinking in carrying out Christ’s Great Commission.

David is another new member to the ITEC Team who is focused on furthering the mechanical training. The majority of his working career has been spent fixing or repairing cars and now has the ability to use those talents to invest in Christ followers around the world. His journey to working for a ministry full time didn’t happen overnight, but by listening to God one step of faith at a time. We hope that you enjoy this episode and are challenged in your own life by hearing how God has been leading others.

We Died Before We Came Here

We Died Before We Came Here

On this episode of Mission Minded we are joined by Emily Foreman, author of the book "We Died Before We Came Here". If not you, who? If not now, when? This was the challenge answered by Stephen Foreman and his wife, Emily, when they traded in their American white picket fence for a giant, dusty sandbox as missionaries in the deserts of North Africa. Stephen had given Emily a well–read copy of Foxe’s Book of Martyrs on their first date, a telling foreshadowing of the ultimate cost he would pay when, at 39, he was shot and killed by al–Qaeda operatives. His life and death planted a seed of boldness and inspiration in the hearts of local believers. This seed would grow and multiply efforts to help reach the very goal that Stephen was willing to give his life for—glorifying God and seeing his Kingdom established among the nations. In this memoir, Emily, left with four kids and an undying calling to reach the Muslim world, recounts their heartrending yet uplifting story of sacrifice and love for a people held captive by the ultimate Enemy. Stephen did not die in vain. This promise echoes through the book’s pages and far beyond, in the minds and lives of countless individuals touched by a man who daily put his life in the hands of God.
