ACMC - Info about doing missions in your church on CD


VOLUME 3 OF "STUFF" NOW AVAILABLE -- "Still More Stuff you need to know about Doing Missions in Your Church" is a book-on-diskette (in Word 2000) of one-page lists, handouts, outlines, and summaries of things church leaders ask about doing missions. Mobilizers and mission organization personnel, as well as church leaders, find these "bottom line" summaries handy and practical. Diskettes of individual volumes are available for $12 each (including shipping). All three volumes plus a cumulative index are also available on CD ($26, including shipping). Send a check (in U.S. Funds) to ACMC, Box 221, Brownsburg, IN 46112. Specify volume 1, 2, or 3 or the CD and provide your postal address. See portions of the first two volumes and the cumulative index at http://www.davidmays.org/Resources/resmays.html

Each volume has all new material and is divided into eight categories: Foundations, Leadership, Management, Prayer, Communication, Congregational Involvement, Missionaries, and Resources.

Material ranges from the known (The Lausanne Covenant) to the exotic (Watch your missions language!). Church leaders, mobilizers, and mission organization personnel find these “bottom line” summaries extremely handy and helpful. More than 4000 copies of the first volume and 1000 of the second have been distributed.

At the Mid-Atlantic ACMC Conference in March 2004, a missions pastor was overheard to tell a participant, “I’m a missions pastor and this is the most useful information I have for my missions team.”

Each volume is available on diskette (in Word 2000), which allows the purchaser to install the document on computer and print the whole book or multiple copies of individual pages as needed. Diskettes sell for $12 each (including shipping).

Now all three volumes, including a cumulative index, are also available on CD ($26, including shipping). You can see introductory sections of the first two volumes and the cumulative index as well as how to obtain Stuff… at http://www.davidmays.org/Resources/resmays.html

To purchase send a check (U.S. funds) to ACMC, Box 221, Brownsburg, IN 46112. Specify Stuff I, Stuff II, Stuff III ($12 each) or the Stuff CD ($26) and provide your postal address. Email davidmays@acmc.org for alternative electronic transactions.
