GO Equipped! Tentmaking Course
Hosted by Global Opportunities, Tent, Velberter Mission (official organizer), Liebe in Aktion, APCM, Pentecostal European Mission.
Four days that can revolutionize your life
Christ can use you with your profession right now, right where you are and also overseas. Stories of tentmakers prove this. They have had great impact for Christ and so can you with preparation. Glob-al Opportunities’ GO Equipped! course equips you to become effective.
While some tentmakers are effective, many are not. Get the major keys to effectiveness—integrating work and witness and relational ministry skills which fit real life—keys we’ve learned from the experience of 100s of tentmakers.
GO Equipped! equips you for now and the future, for here and for overseas whether as a student, a professional or a businessperson. Lean how to integrate faith into all of life. Relieve the tension be-tween work time and ministry time, between secular and sacred.
Receive intensely practical and thoroughly Biblical training. Hear real life stories showing how tent-making works and how God can use you.
It’s not just textbook, it’s real life. I was really impressed by the practical teaching and the stories. The teaching is applicable to our daily lives not just for our time abroad. —from multiple attendees
Learn relational ministry skills which work at work. Learn to share Christ naturally and non-invasively to arouse spiritual interest. Then answer questions co-workers want answered. Learn to lead dis-covery-type Bible studies to investigate Jesus further in the original record.
Rediscover the power of simple hospitality. Learn how to enter people’s cultural world—how to tran-sition from culture shock to enjoying and bonding with the people.
Gain confidence sharing your story, explaining the gospel, guiding people to Jesus, discipling them, mentoring them as they bring others to Christ and lead Bible studies, and developing leaders of simple churches.
GO Equipped! can revolutionize you whole life and ministry both for overseas and for here at home.

This course…has given me so many ideas on how I can integrate my faith better. —December 2013
