A Short Guide to Mission

Do you know your DMMs from your DBSs? Any idea what church planting really looks like? How about an unreached people group? The world of cross-cultural mission is full of terminology and concepts that are unfamiliar to many. In this series, we want to demystify some jargon, explain some ideas and hopefully inspire you in how you could play a part in God’s incredible mission to the nations.

What’s Stopping You?

It can be thrilling when you first sense the call to serve in overseas mission! The excitement continues as you begin to explore what that might look like in practice — discerning where and how you want to serve and discussing possibilities with a mission agency. But over time, the process of preparing to go can become quite daunting as some of its realities begin to set in.

In this series we take an honest look at some of the obstacles that can be in the way of you following your calling to serve overseas, and how God is at work in the midst of it all.

Letters to the Next Generation

From learning Arabic to being a family overseas, in her ‘Letters to the Next Generation’ of mission workers, long-term worker Christina* shares her insight into some of the challenges and joys of being a cross-cultural worker in the Middle East.

Are You Prepared to Go?

There’s lots to think about when preparing to begin ministry in a new or unfamiliar location, culture or people group! Whilst we can’t expect to be ready for everything we might face, in this series we’re exploring the various ways we can equip ourselves to be more effective in cross cultural mission. Are you prepared?

Ministry to Muslims

Answering Common Questions from Muslims

Muslims often have many questions when we talk to them about Jesus. In this series, originally published in awmlink magazine, a believer from a Muslim background gives some pointers in how to reply.

Barriers to the Gospel

Why don’t Muslims become Christians? What stumbling blocks and barriers stand in their way?

In this series of three articles, we look at a few key areas of concern. Although every Muslim person will have their own concerns and questions, there are queries that are common to many from this background. We can consider these to help us to think more intentionally about how we share the gospel, and how we pray for our Muslim friends and neighbours. This last point is crucial, because without the Holy Spirit’s work in their lives, none of these barriers will be broken down.

Reaching Muslims Locally

Have you ever wondered how to reach Muslims in your local area? You may be wanting to reach those around you before going overseas long-term, or maybe you feel called to Muslim people in the UK.

In our new series, Reaching Muslims Locally, long-term cross-cultural workers living in the UK give helpful pointers and advice to help you reach your Muslim neighbour for Christ.


Through the Archives

In this series, written for our 140th anniversary, we took a look back through the archives to explore the stories of our founders and other figures throughout the history of AWM-Pioneers. Methods may have changed over the years, but the vision of seeking to share the gospel of Christ with Muslims of the Arab world wherever they may be found remains the same.
