Resources

If you need practical help for Christian ministry, or fresh ideas to make you sit up and think, here are over 150 resources not to miss. They are all available free of charge (minimal conditions apply).

This section gives access to:

  • Articles - items of up to 10,000 words covering a wide range of topics
  • Training Notes - shorter, no more than 2,000 words, a 5 minute read
  • Health-checks - detailed models for testing both churches and mission agencies

The same items are also indexed by the themes of:

There is also a complete listing of all items in alphabetical order by title:

Bookmark the site and return to this page to check out the growing collection. Ask to come on my bimonthly e-letter mailing list to inform you of new resources as I add them to the site. The link just given also gives you access to my data privacy notice.

I check, update and, I hope, improve each Article and set of Training Notes at least once every two years. For example, in May 2018 I updated Articles A5 and A25 plus Training Notes TN29 and TN30.

I welcome feedback by email and will amend items and add notes in the light of comments received. That's the beauty of web publishing.
