As a steering team member of the Mobile Ministry Forum its been great to see several new advances coming together over the last few months.
We've been able to put on two webinars in the last two months and have another scheduled for July 18th. The first webinar (link to recording and notes) happened in May and was an overview of some of the newest happenings in the world of mobile ministry. The second webinar occurred last Thursday and we had Antoine Wright of Mobile Ministry Magazine and Josiah Palusky of Renew World Outreach share ways that individuals and organizations can get started in mobile ministry. The third and final webinar in the series will feature Heidi Campbell, of the Network for New Media, Religion and Digital Culture Studies of Texas A&M University, will help us to understand some of the theological implications of new media in its application to outreach.
Mobile Ministry Training Course
In a collaborative endeavor with Cybermissions.org and with the able assistance of instructional design expert from MAF-LT and GEM we are excited to have just launched the new Mobile Ministry Training Course. This is a six week, somewhat intensive introduction to mobile ministry that combines some of the best resources on mobile ministry out there along with practical assignments, guided group discussions and interaction with top mobile ministry practitioners and thinkers. If you are interested in learning more either check out the course webpage or contact John Edmiston at johned (at) aibi.ph
Introduction to Mobile Ministry Training Course
The MMF skunkworks team (well, that might be a stretch) is currently developing a 2-3 hour long "course" that will equip believers with everything they need to get from zero to moving out with mobile ministry. We're finalizing outcomes and beginning to look at how to roll the project out. Thanks for your prayers!
2013 MMF Consultation

We're very grateful to have Darcie Drymon, of SIL's Vernacular Media Services, spearheading the planning this year and think we'll have a standout time together.
