TRANSCRIPT

<ul><li> 1. a new platform for missional partnerships? Hi. Im John Henry. For 25 years I have mobilized students into missions with Youth With A Mission 1 </li> <li> 2. I thought I was breaking the mold We mobilized hundreds of internships to help students learn how to flourish in their calling by serving projects in communities around the world. 2 </li> <li> 3. But our interns were mostly from the Western World. Then I began to notice something 3 </li> <li> 4. I saw Indian &amp; Korean missionaries leading student fellowships everywhere. 4 </li> <li> 5. YWAM leaders from Madagascar working on campus in four cities their nation. 5 </li> <li> 6. I have worked with hundreds of young leaders engaging university communities in 35 countries. 6 </li> <li> 7. And I worked with Chinese church planters leading tens of thousands in universities in 6 cities. The movement plans to send one million new missionaries in the next decade . 7 </li> <li> 8. The new Majority Church is in the Global South. The World has changed. 8 </li> <li> 9. 33AD 330AD 90AD 1800AD 1509AD 75% of Church is now outside the West and has little attachment to Western traditions, identity, and legacy. Gods Church does (Roman/Greek/Protestant) not have a mission; Gods Mission has a Church with many 2011AD centers. 9 1054AD </li> <li> 10. And this new world is FLAT... More connected. There are 650 million mobile phones In Africa. Nigeria has100 million mobile phone lines. Kenyas mobile phone sales increased more than 200% in 2009. Africa has far more than U.S. and Europe. 10 </li> <li> 11. Question: How do we respond to this growing opportunity to share Jesus Christ and mobilize a new generation? 11 </li> <li> 12. And how can we mobilize volunteers from anywhere to everywhere? 12 </li> <li> 13. How can we foster missional partnerships? 13 </li> <li> 14. What is a missional community? 14 </li> <li> 15. And how can they be involved now? 15 </li> <li> 16. Heres our response: ! ! a partnership platform for missional service 16 </li> <li> 17. a sustainable, high-impact, culturally immersive, and community driven online missions matching, training and mobilization program for students and volunteers everywhere. 17 </li> <li> 18. ! will resource hundreds of partner projects serving communities in need with pre-qualified &amp; trained students volunteers 18 </li> <li> 19.
