Missions   Resource  Connection

Calvary Missions Resource Connection is a ministry to missionaries and senders. Our primary goal is to provide missionaries with the information and resources that they need to enable them to fulfill the ministry God has called them to. In addition we work to equip pastors and senders with the information they need to support their missionaries as they prepare for the mission field, while they are living overseas, and upon their return to America.

 

While our primary focus is to missionaries and senders within the Calvary Chapel movement of churches, we welcome all to glean from this collection of missions resources.

RISK IN MISSIONS:

Facing Danger: A Guide Through Risk by Anna E. Hampton

Hampton seeks to develop a biblical understanding of risk in order to increase the resiliency of cross-cultural workers from a risk-averse culture and reduce attrition rates. Stressing the need to look to God in times of risk and highlighting the Holy Spirit as our advocate to come alongside us and help us through risk, Hampton also looks at emotions in risk situations and gives practical information on stewardship in risk situations and preparation for risk situations. Additionally, she discusses the importance of shepherding people in the way that Christ modelled. Hampton's website Better Than Gold contains further resources including a list of risk myths, book lists and articles for additional reading, risk videos, resources for developing a theology of risk, information on the Risk Assessment and Management Training that Hampton and her husband offer, and more.
