RESOURCES FOR CHURCHES WITH GLOBAL VISION
Since its founding in 1975, Advancing Churches in Missions Commitment (ACMC) was a catalyst for missions mobilization with thousands of local churches across the U.S. In 2007 ACMC became a ministry of Pioneers, and in 2011, ACMC was retired. ACMC probably had the best available print resources for a church launching or improving their missions program and links to resources created by ACMC were available at http://pioneers.org/Send/acmc.aspx as of October 2013.
ACMC’s then Southeastern Field Representative, David Meade, suggested these ACMC resources—in this order--to African American church representatives in March, 2000 at a COMINAD meeting. While these resources are not specifically contextualized for the Black church, they can be, and offer workable and tried methods to assist your church’s obedience to the Great Commission.
These titles were in stock as of October 2013.
