Data is Your Ally: Key Research Analysis for the Modern Missions Movement

Presented by Michael VanHuis, VP Strategic Initiatives, Missio Nexus

Data metrics and analysis seem daunting and maybe even unspiritual.  We all get a bit nervous when we think about what happened to King David when he counted his able-bodied troops in Israel!  Yet, as we know in scripture numbers are significant.  Data is a tool that can help you tell a story, it can bring focus to your work, it can build a case for change, it provides accountability, and it can clarify myths.  In fact, in today’s world data analysis is one of the most sought-after skills and commodities.  During this webinar, we will explore the importance of utilizing data in our organization and spend a substantial part of the time reflecting on recent findings that are reported in the newly released 22nd Edition of the North American Missions Handbook.

Michael is married to Laura and they are blessed with 5 children.  Michael and Laura were missionaries with Pioneers serving in Ghana, West Africa and in other leadership roles within Pioneers.  Michael has also served as a mission’s pastor at Northland Church in Longwood, Fl. overseeing local and global missions.  Before joining Mission Nexus, Michael served as the Vice President of OneWay Ministries in Aurora, IL, where they currently reside.  Michael has a Master’s degree in Global Leadership from Fuller School of Intercultural Studies.
