Mobilization: The Fourth (and Final?) Era of the Modern Mission Movement
Hindsight is always 20/20 and peering into the rearview mirror of missions history, attempting to see it from God’s perspective, is a formidable, but exhilarating, endeavor. One modern thinker who has done a stellar job of helping us understand when, where, and how God has been at work over the centuries is missiologist Dr. Ralph Winter, founder of the U.S. Center for World Mission (now Frontier Ventures).

The Post-Quarantine Church: Six Urgent Challenges + Opportunities That Will Determine the Future of Your Congregation
The book is written as a result of the author’s blogs, webinars, and church consultations with “tens of thousands of church leaders through the pandemic” (page 4), along with his coaching many leaders directly and speaking or writing to nearly a million others. It focuses on the following six challenges to the post-quarantine church: (1) gather differently and better; (2) seize opportunity to reach the digital world; (3) reconnect with community near the church; (4) take prayer to a new level; (5) rethink facilities for emerging opportunities; and (6) make lasting changes that make a difference. The intent of the book is to help pastors and church leaders prepare themselves for the post-quarantine era.
