Group bible studies for short-term mission trips
Time Out is the title of a series of specialized Bible study materials available for short-term mission groups to use both before and during their time overseas.
This series of 15 studies has been developed by Tony Horsfall, who has been involved in cross-cultural training for over ten years, working with EQUIP at Bawtry Hall (Doncaster), and now as a free-lance trainer. Previously he served in East Malaysia with Overseas Missionary Fellowship, and still travels regularly to Singapore and Malaysia for ministry amongst the churches and missions community there. These studies are the fruit of that experience.
These studies are now available for download through the OSCAR website.
Below there is a FREE downloadable file which includes the contents list, background notes and a sample copy of the first study. (This file utilises Adobe Acrobat Viewer, if you don't have this installed you may download it at www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html)
A copy of all 15 studies is available for a one-off payment of £25. You can then use them as many times as you like. The notes are available in pdf format or rtf format so that you can adapt them and customize them as you wish. All Tony asks is that you attribute them to him somewhere in what is produced!
