Favorite Resources for Mission Committees


With the start of a new school year, your mission committee might be looking for some new and interesting ways to promote missions within your congregation. In addition to the excellent missions education resources available from Christian Reformed World Missions, you may want to check out the following websites.

Note: These resources are not specifically Reformed, so you may want to adapt the content for your context.

Catalyst Services

Catalyst Services publishes a free monthly newsletter called Postings, and you can search archives online. I love how the articles are short, to the point, and usually include discussion questions.

Missio Nexus

A large collection of webinars and articles to download for a fee (or free for members. Membership is $30 a person).

Missions Help for Your Church: David Mays

Several articles, sample forms, sermon helps for free download and lists of recommended resources. David Mays passed away in 2012, leaving a legacy of missions through his work with Advancing Churches in Missions Commitment and The Mission Exchange.


The Perspectives Reader is a collection of the best articles by a wide variety of Biblical scholars, historians, missiologists, and practicioners. The Perspectives Study Guide helps students navigate through the Reader and ushers students through the study of God’s mission and character through the Bible, Christian history, culture, and the task remaining in world evangelization. Class activities and our unique instructor format bring the class alive to explore what God is doing in the world today. 


Free podcasts and webinars to help your church become unleashed to reach unreached people groups.

Are there any other organizations or tools or tips that you have found helpful in your church?

Thanks for the great resources Wendy! I attended several Advancing Churches in Missions seminars with David Mays from 2000-2010. The Lord used him to help me and many others develop a mission mindset for the Kingdom of God. He was influential in helping us seek think of missions locally and globally!
