When Nicola and husband Simon were called out of a comfortable life into the poorest communities, they had no idea they'd end up serving in slums in Uganda. Nicola's story is an incredible exploration of steps of faith, seeing how God can bring incredible transformation to the most dire situations. You'll come away from this […]

In this insightful interview he shares his experiences and lessons learned from years serving in Istanbul, […]
We had the chance to sit down with Samuel and hear a little about his cross-cultural story. Hailing from rural Sweden, Samuel's parents service as missionaries has had a significant impact on his own life, as he too has served in cross-cultural contexts, particularly with young people, and now as a husband to Joy, from […]

Though I have written about J.O. Fraser (James Outram Fraser (富能仁; 1886–1938) before in this column, his stature amongst missionaries is such that a regular reminder is necessary. Sean Cheng wrote in ChinaSource: “In the remote mountains and ancient forests of China’s Nujiang Grand Canyon, near the Myanmar and Tibet borders in Yunnan province, live […]
David Bogue (1750-1825) is "one of the greatest of the forgotten figures of Church History", especially in the history of Christian missionary work. He lived at a time when cross-cultural missions from the UK scarcely existed, but his influence and vision, though forgotten, are as great as any other man or woman of that time. […]
William Milne (1785-1822) was the second Protestant missionary sent by the London Missionary Society to China, joining the first missionary, Robert Morrison. He was indeed a pioneer in those very early days. I want to list five keys in the life of this remarkable man, but first I will give a brief summary of his […]
Loren Cunningham (1935-2023) became the first missionary to go to every nation in the world with the last country visited being Libya in 1999. That is remarkable in itself. But much more so was Loren’s birthing of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), which, since it began in 1960, has raised up missionaries who also have […]
MBE Missionary to Hong Kong since 1966 Founder of the St Stephen's Society
Ross & Christine’s training and ministry have always had a biblical base, integrity and practicality. This material meets a need vital for the mission field and use on the ground. It will help to make Jesus known in different cultures.
Founder and former International Director Operation Mobilization
I have followed Ross since his student days at Cambridge when he also joined OM for a short time. I have seen God using him and his wife in wonderful ways and their commitment to China is outstanding. They have a teaching ministry that has impacted many lives and you will be blessed as you take time to read and listen.
Founder And International Director Great Lakes Outreach
The Patersons have been a lifelong inspiration to me in laying down their lives for the call to cross-cultural missions. I cannot think of any better training available on the web than FieldPartner, which is the synthesis of their five decades of learning on the ground as authentic practitioners.
Before going on a short mission trip to China, I learned a lot at the Barnabas School of Missions, which was built by the Antioch Missions founder Ross Paterson and his wife Christine. The program provides training to challenge us to want to see God glorified among the nations. Ross and Christine’s 48 years of mission experiences taught me how to do it - and how not to do it!
"I am a huge fan of cross culture training before hitting the mission field... I would go as far as to say is absolutely the difference between being successful and lasting out long-term on the mission field and burning out within a short period of time and having to head back home"
Lydia Years of mission experience in Asia and Middle East
Student of 'Crossing Cultures 101'
...a total revelation for me and it helps to explain some of my past struggles in cross-cultural experiences. As I've been exposed to several cultures, I often wonder what's my true identity and have this constant longing for a sense of belonging, while at the same time I appreciate the fact the exposure has made me more adaptable...Thank you!
Student of 'The Antioch Factor' & 'Crossing Cultures 101'
That was excellent and very insightful...I need to think on this more, a lot more! So much to take in and think over in this module. This should be part of all church discipleship programmes.
