There's something about the close of a calendar that makes us reflect on the previous year to inform us as we move forward. As I start to plan blog posts for 2014, I always check to see what has been the most read. Take a look to see if you missed any of them!
This post definitely has staying power! Written in 2009, it provides a comprehensive list of ways to get involved in missions, overseas and in North America. You'll also find links to helpful resources.
Another foundational post that lists articles, workshops, webinars, and links of interest to those wanting to learn more about global missions.
Very controversial in 2011 when it was posted, I'm not sure what explains its sudden increase in popularity. The topic is certainly appropriate for the Christmas season however!
Sometimes I forget that the archives exist, which is a shame because there is so much good stuff in them. I find that I don't make it to webinars even when I put them on my schedule, so I love that these are in one spot so I can go back and watch them at my leisure.
Another controversial post, with more than 30 comments.
This is the only post that was on the top 10 list last year, and it continues to be a hot topic in our denomination.
I was glad to see this one on the popular list - it is incredibly important for any short term missions team, and our field staff report that they can see a big difference in the groups that are spiritually prepared.
I had actually not read this one before, so I was surprised to see it on the list. After reading it, I can see why it's a favorite. Joel Huyser, with CRWM, shares about when a CRWRC (now World Renew) colleague asked if they could be friends.
I think this might actually be included because of people searching for webinars and landing on this page, which then links to the Global Missions Archives (see #7). Webinars now cover lots of different topics. You can find the current, proposed, and archived list here: http://network.crcna.org/webinars
and finally, the most popular post on the Global Missions Network . . . . DRUMROLL PLEASE . . . .
