Missions Resources

It’s surprising how many things change over the course of time in a given field of knowledge. Missions is one of those that have changed significantly when it comes to researching unreached people groups, effective methods and models of evangelization and discipleship, the current needs on the field, and the increase of workers being sent out from “the Global South.”

In the past, one would need to buy or somehow access printed books or magazines about missions. Thankfully, many of these resources are available for free on the Internet. Here are some suggested resources that one can sign up for to keep up with changes and support their ongoing learning of this important topic.

Mission Frontiers is an online magazine from Frontier Ventures, based in the US, but written by missionaries from many different organizations working cross-culturally around the globe. For 45 years, they have faithfully “proclaimed the biblical mandate to reach all peoples with the gospel of Jesus Christ,” and feature articles covering a variety of related topics.

They also post a daily prayer guide called Unreached of the Day for the unreached people groups of the world. Jesus quoted the Old Testament scripture, “…for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7), and this is a great tool to help remind us to intercede.

“… for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples…”

The Brigada Today email journal sends out a collection of missions links and information to “challenge & motivate evangelical Christians toward greater involvement in finishing the task of global evangelism.” Sign up on their website to receive their weekly email.

Justin Long’s Weekly Roundup covers the world, posting links to articles on current events and other information that may be of interest to believers desiring to know more about the peoples of the world, places to pray for, and how to engage.

For excellent up-to-date statistics, and clearly presented infographics, check out the Joshua Project. They also have a widget for the Unreached of the Day and the ability to search for unreached people groups based on different search criteria.

Finally, the Lausanne Movement, a global movement begun more than 40 years ago “connecting influencers and ideas for global missions,” has a large content library of missional resources online.

These are just a few of the resources available online for missions research.
