Missions Mobilization Team

The MMT facilitates nurturing, supporting, sending, educating and advocating for reaching the people of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Paul Bruening

Team Leader

Jesus told his disciples, “Freely you have received, freely give.”  What motivation for life!  It has been my joy to be sent by God to the people in my home town, in travels throughout the United States and in significant cross- cultural ways to the people of Russia and Chile through evangelism, professional connections and construction projects.  I’m looking forward to what is next.

The Lord called me to missions while I was in college.  My husband and I were privileged to have served with Mission Aviation Fellowship for 26 years and currently we serve with Church Resource Ministries on a team called ‘Imago Chrisi’, Image of Christ.  Jesus was and is a missionary.  
May we follow Him.

Being raised in a Christian home where “missions” and “missionary” were a part of the conversation, it was not surprising that I found myself living in Haiti for six years. I was changed forever by that experience. However, my parents also demonstrated that the “mission field” began at our front door. Where ever there are people, there are opportunities to be Jesus.

Having grown up as the grandson of missionaries, the discussion of missions was always
present in our household. The definitive leading of the Lord towards missions in my life
came while attending St. Paul Bible College in Minnesota. Upon graduation, I stepped
out and headed to Haiti. My love for mission work and outreach continues to grow each
day and I pray that it will not ever lessen.

Missions Education Opportunity

"Perspective Course"

Align Your Life With God's Global Purpose

The Perspectives course equips believers with greater vision, hope and passion for reaching all people with the Gospel.

Why Perspectives?

God has a “world-sized role for every Christian in his global purpose  Whether people want to go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue.  The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover:  vision to live a life of purpose.  Discovering that vision makes this course valuable, and perhaps crucial, for any Christian.

What is Perspectives?

Perspectives is a fifteen week course designed around four vantage points or “perspectives”—Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic.  Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose.

The Biblical and Historical sections reveal why our confidence is based on the historic fact of God’s relentless work from dawn of history until this day.
The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very “do-able” task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope.
