Future Student Q&A

This time is set aside for those already enrolled or still looking into what training might look like at Radius International. Led by our staff and attended by prior students we will field your questions and fill in those gaps that you may have in your understanding of what a year at Radius will look like.

Mechanics of Culture and Language Acquisition

What does it actually look like to become fluent in a culture and language? What do you do on day one? As a sending church, what questions should you be asking? During this workshop, our staff will lay it out and answer your questions on what good Culture and Language Study looks like on the field.

Raising Children on The Field

There is no doubt that raising children on the mission field comes with unique challenges and concerns. We will address many of the common ones and equip churches with practical ways to help their missionaries succeed in this tough situation.

Concerns with Modern Missions Methods Q&A

Do the methodologies that missionaries use matter? Are there specific methodologies being used that are in fact hurting the spread of the gospel? Do you know what those are? Do you know what methods your missionaries are using?

Mechanics of Bible Translation

During this workshop, our staff will walk you through the entire process of Bible translation from having no written language at all to a Bible that is readable by the newly formed church.

Pastor/Missions Q&A

Are you a pastor or missions leader in your local church? This time is set aside just for you to be able to ask questions specifically about the training program at Radius and other topics that directly relate to you as a sending church.

Business AND Missions

The majority of the unreached live in countries that do not allow religious workers (missionaries). How do we carry out the Great Commission in those contexts?

Mission Agencies and missionaries have struggled to live out godly integrity as they “use business” as a way to get a visa. Come learn about how Radius addresses this challenge and opportunity (and find out how your business experience can play a significant role in assisting church planting teams).

Engage Global

You are entirely convinced in the Scriptural mandate to participate in the Great Commission, but now what? How do you educate your church? What is the next step? That is where Engage Global lives. Showing churches that next step.

Radius Meet and Greet

Each night our staff and some of our recently graduated alumni will be available for questions, answers and good old fashioned conversation. Historically these times have been one of the most beneficial for those attending the conference.
