Transforming Ventures

A Spiritual Guide for Volunteers in Mission
  • By Jane P. Ives
Product Description
Written in a workbook format, Transforming Ventures offers spiritual guidance for those engaged in short-term mission work—experiences that can change individual lives and the life of the local church.

Jane Ives focuses on eight different themes: discovering how God is already at work in this area, adjusting to differences in culture and comfort, experiencing the hospitality of persons less wealthy than ourselves, demonstrating sensitivity to other people, building supportive team relationships, participating in indigenous worship, opening oneself to personal spiritual growth, and liberating time. The author includes stories of the her own mission experiences in the United States, Russia, Central America, South America, and Africa.

The book also includes suggestions for worship, prayer, meditation, journaling, follow-up projects, and other means of connecting the acts of mission with the disciplines of the spiritual life. Upper Room Books.
