I am excited by your desire to investigate tentmaking! Tentmaking is a strategic and powerful missions strategy. It allows you to use your vocation to reach the nations.
Tentmaking is a real alternative and indispensible complement to vocational missions. It is much more than an access strategy for closed countries. Apostle Paul chose it over donor support because of its great benefits. Read why in Tentmaking 101 articles linked below.
The vision of GLOBAL Opportunities is to introduce Christians to tentmaking, to equip them, and then help them get overseas as effective tentmakers. As challenging as finding a job can be, the bigger challenge by far is being effective in reaching people after you arrive.
GO helps potential tentmakers through the whole process by providing advice, mentoring, training materials, intensive two week curriculum tentmaking courses run in just over 4 days and covering a weekend, in USA, Canada & Europe.
Tentmaking is powerful because it invites regular, everyday Christians, all Christians, back into full engagement in reaching the world. It can transform the Church, when we re-inject its DNA into the lifeblood of the Church.
