Episode 78: Don’t Tell Me What To Do!

Does the idea of submitting to leadership scare you? Do we really need leaders over our lives? This fear of submission is very common, especially in today’s culture that worships independence and being a strong individual. While these ideals are not inherently wrong they can sometimes keep us from truly being released in our calling. The guys look at this struggle and share their opinions on the matter in this final episode of the series “Millennials in Missions”

Episode 77: I Don’t Dig Wells!

When you think of the title missionary, do you think of khaki shorts and digging wells? Or construction projects, boring presentations during church services, and never-ending requests for funds? This false perception of what it means to be a missionary will so often keep people, specifically millennials, from ever going into the mission field. The regulars (including Chad, who finally arrived in Germany) look deeper at this barrier, share their experience (including a hilarious rant from David) and give some practical tips for those feeling called to missions.

Episode 76: I Don’t Do Paperwork!

In continuing with our series, the guys look at another obstacle that Millennials can face when wanting to go into missions, “The Myth of Instant Specialization.” The world tells us to only contribute in a way that perfectly aligns with our skills, dreams, or passions. This mentality is a major roadblock to radically serving God. The regulars discuss the importance of having a servant heart and a willingness to “pay your dues” and how this ultimately leads to real contentment and joy.

In this series, you’ll get to travel to the past, when the regulars were all together at the Steiger International Center back in October 2017. They discuss some of the unique roadblocks that Millennials face in trying to live a life of radical obedience, and how they seem to experience a particular difficulty in entering the mission field. In this first episode they talk about the fear of commitment, and how many times Millennials want to go from experience to experience without actually fully giving themselves to anything.
