Re-entry part Two

May 23, 2017

In this podcast, the second in this series about the phenomenon known as re-entry, we learn that it is a reality. Often missionaries go to the field thinking their biggest challenge will be adjusting to and learning a new culture on a foreign field. But the startling reality is this: coming home can be and often is more a bigger adjustment than going to the mission field.

Re-entry Part One

May 8, 2017

In Part One of this series, Jeff Jackson introduces listeners to the reality of re-entry. Most people are surprised to learn that coming back to the States and American culture after serving for a term, whether short or extended, in the foreign field, is difficult. It seems the biggest shock to the system and senses would occur when a missionary arrives on the field. But the truth is, coming home is not necessarily a home coming.

Refugees Part Four: What to do practically

April 24, 2017

What can we do, as representatives of the Kingdom of God, to serve refugees? In the fourth installment in this four part series about refugees, Jeff Jackson discusses what can be done practically to have a long-term, Gospel impact on refugees in your community.

Jeff mentions a few resources as he works through this talk and we want to make them easy for you to access.

First, Jeff mentions VOLAGs, which are voluntary resettlement agencies. Here's a link. Jeff expands on this in greater detail in previous parts of this series, specifically Part One. For you edification, here are links to Part Two and Part Three, as well.

Second, Jeff mentions a teaching by Pastor Ed Compean, when giving Ed credit for coining expose, engage, entangle. These are the steps, says Ed, that God takes us through as He exposes His people to others in a cross-cultural setting. Watch Ed's teaching here.

Finally, when mentioning presence, practice, and proclamation, Jeff tips his hat to Jim Whitty. Learn more about Jim's work here.
