Good Soil E&D is for Cross-Cultural Missionaries

as well as many other kinds of ministries.

People portraits

Good Soil Evangelism and Discipleship training and resources were specifically created to help cross-cultural missionaries—missionaries from any evangelical mission agency! Missionaries going to any country or people group!

  • As a missionary, do you sometimes find it difficult to help unbelievers from non-Christian worldview backgrounds clearly understand the gospel of Jesus Christ?
  • Do you find that they tend to hang on to some of their previous religious beliefs and practices, even after they have professed to become Christians?
  • Would you like to get some training to help you with these, and other, cross-cultural evangelism challenges?
  • And would you like to find evangelism training resources to help you train national believers where you serve?
  • Are you looking for evangelism and discipleship resources that are translated – or could be translated – into the language of the people to whom you minister?

Good Soil can help you overcome some of the common problems that cross-cultural missionaries face as they evangelize Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, spiritists and animists, postmoderns, staunch Roman Catholics, and others from non-Christian worldview backgrounds.

Good Soil has helped many missionaries—from a wide variety of mission agencies and other international non-profit organizations—to become more effective in “making disciples of all nations.” And we believe that Good Soil can help you.

Good Soil can help you with
worldview-relevant Training and Resources.

Missionary Training

For Worldview-Relevant Evangelism and Discipleship

Good Soil Basic Seminar

Two Days in May or October

Good Soil’s Basic Seminar will help you...

  • Understand key principles of cross-cultural evangelism that are found in the New Testament, especially from the ministry of the apostles in the book of Acts. Good Soil is solidly based on a Biblical theology of evangelism and missiological worldview-relevancy.
  • Learn many practical tools and tips for effective evangelism, even in cultures that may be totally ignorant of, and hostile to, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Cut through the “worldview noise” that often prevents non-Christians in other faith-cultures from understanding the essential distinctives of the Biblical gospel, and from failing to forsake their non-Biblical beliefs and practices when they do profess faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Present the Bible’s BIG Story of redemption, beginning in Genesis 1 and proceeding chronologically through the Bible to the end of Revelation 22.
  • Do evangelism in a way that unbelievers—even those from non-Biblical worldviews—will clearly understand the gospel, so that they can sincerely embrace it and hold on to it.

Here are a few sample pages from the Good Soil Seminar workbook:

For More Information and to Register

I just wanted to share the impact of Moving Beyond Lecture on the teaching team at Biblical Ministries Worldwide.

One week after Gil’s Moving Beyond Lecture seminar here at our office in Georgia, we started our Candidate Seminar. I challenged all of those who attended Moving Beyond Lecture (MBL) to take at least one principle from MBL and apply it to one of their classes and then report back to me. I made it a contest of sorts: the winner would receive a nice gift.

Results? I have ten (10) examples of how impactful MBL was on the training team. In just one week, this course material has dramatically changed how we design and conduct many of our sessions. One of my trainers is a VP of Academic Affairs for a seminary and he completely revised his approach to his class. Who is the winner? They all are! Not only did they see more enthusiastic response to material from the students, they now "own" the MBL principle they used. So, everyone is going to get a small reward (Starbucks card).

I'm not going to let the pressure off, though. Even though everyone has returned to their “real job,” my thoughts going forward are

-Have everyone complete a Training Wheels for their course(s)
-Revise the handouts they use, if any, with learning objectives clearly stated
-Reduce dependence upon PowerPoint as the primary content transfer mode

Thank you so much for making such a contribution to our training processes at Biblical Ministries Worldwide. Only eternity will tell the real impact of your gracious gift to (or for) the cause of Christ.

—Clark, Training Director of Biblical Ministries Worldwide

Equipping missionaries to share God's story of hope in a world of competing faiths and cultures.

Bible Training for Missionaries

Learning the Bible chronologically, in a way that will equip you for effective ministry in a world of competing faiths and cultures.

God’s BIG Story: In August we began teaching in Garjaws Town, Grand Bassa County. For our first teaching, we placed a 600-foot long orange timeline through the middle of the village. We then hung most of the 100 events we will study in The Roots of Faith, along with the 25 Bible “Eras” (Creation, Fall, Flood etc.). We then gave an overview of God’s Story from eternity past to eternity future. The people are excited to see what God has, is, and will do and that they are included in God’s Story! In September the lessons continued and included integrating “Bible Telling” for those who cannot read.

—Gary, missionary in Liberia

Chronological Bible courses that unfold the BIG Story of the Bible, based on 100 key redemptive story events. Specifically created for training missionaries to share God’s redemptive story in non-Christian worldview cultures AND to use in teaching the Bible to Christians from those cultures who often carry non-Christian “worldview baggage” into their Christian lives and practices—teaching the Bible to help purge the “worldview baggage.”

The Roots of Faith Bible Courses
The Roots of Faith - Old and New Testaments

The Roots of Faith courses are three courses in one:

  • Chronological Bible survey courses—Students master the overall chronological framework and core content of the Bible.
  • Biblical theology courses—The Bible’s basic theological concepts are presented as they were progressively revealed, from Genesis 1 through Revelation 22.
  • Worldview apologetics courses—Common non Christian worldview (“worldview noise”) issues are addressed throughout the courses in order to equip Christ-followers to live and minister in a world of competing faiths and cultures.

The courses also include:

  • Downloadable Bible commentary for each course, to provide expert help for all of the Bible passages included in the lessons.
  • Instructors Guide for each course.
  • Access to online instructional resources for each course.

Additional supplemental resources are available, such as printed and PowerPoint teaching visuals and chronological Bible cards and more.

Taking The Roots of Faith after being on the mission field for several years was a great encouragement and review for us. It also gave us the tools to help teach the Old and New Testament in our Bible school here in the Philippines. Both the outline and the pictures have been so helpful in organizing our materials for teaching. It also helps the students understand The Story of Hope in the bigger context of the Bible.

—Phil and Barb, missionaries to the Philippines

Missionary Resources

For Worldview-Relevant Evangelism & Discipleship

Good Soil provides a wide variety of evangelism and discipleship resources for missionary ministries. And some of these are already available in multiple languages. But if the language you need is not currently available, we are willing to work with you on translation projects.

We all want to share our faith effectively…but how do we do it?

The Story of Hope

Evangelistic Bible Study Workbook

The Story of Hope was specifically created for evangelism (or discipleship) with people from non-Christian worldview cultures—for missionary ministries.

  • It begins with the assumption that Bible study participants know little or nothing about the true God, the Bible, or Jesus Christ.
  • It begins with Genesis 1:1 and unfolds the BIG Story of God’s plan of redemption, from Genesis through Revelation. In doing so, it provides the overall context in which the gospel of Jesus Christ makes sense, even to people from other faith backgrounds.
  • It engages participants in direct Bible study, allowing them to have “Aha!” moments about the truths of Scripture, especially regarding Jesus Christ—His claims and His provision for the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life.
  • It is visually and colorfully illustrated and designed for easy understanding.
  • It is time-flexible. You can use it in one-on-one studies, in groups studies, or individuals can use for self-study.
  • There is a FREE downloadable Leader’s Guide available.
  • There is also a Global English Edition available, written at 7th—9th grade reading levels
  • Generous quantity pricing.
  • Available in many languages. And we are open to working with you on translation projects.

FREE Leader's Guide

I have found The Story of Hope and related resources to be the most effective tools for evangelism in my 35 years in the ministry. I have found no better material for evangelism and discipleship for any country than the Good Soil Evangelism and Discipleship's The Story of Hope. Good Soil also has a children's edition with lots of games and songs. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! With all my responsibilities in our ministry in Southeast Asia, IF I could only do one thing, it would be to teach this material.

—Steve, independent missionary to the Philippines, Vietnam, and Myanmar

The Story of Hope

Evangelistic Bible Study Workbook

We have developed a curriculum plan for teaching The Story of Hope in a class setting.

No boring sessions in this study!

  • FREE online access to the online Instructor's Resource Center, with files for class activities.

The Message of Hope

Bible Study Workbook for Ministry with Muslims

The Message of Hope is a chronological Bible study workbook for ministry with Muslims. The study begins in Genesis 1:1 and proceeds through the Bible to the very end of the book of Revelation, including 40 lessons, each focusing on one major event in the Bible's BIG Story of redemption. The Message of Hope lets the Bible speak for itself and engages participants in thought-provoking discussions along the way. The 40 events were strategically chosen to address religious issues of interest and concern to Muslims. While the study is similar in many ways to The Story of Hope, five events were substituted in The Message of Hope in order to make this study more appropriate for a Bible study with Muslims. There are two editions of The Message of Hope:

  • Edition for Bible studies with Muslims who embrace "folk" or "popular" Islam - includes pictures that depict the Bible events and characters in the study. Blue border.
  • Edition for Bible studies with Muslims who adhere to "classical" or "orthodox" Islam - does not include pictures of Bible events and characters. Yellow border.

FREE Leader's Guide - 147 professionally designed pages, developed by people who lived and worked in Muslim majority countries for many years.

32 Pages - Both editions contain Bible maps. Available in a growing number of languages.

The Message of Hope Power Point Presentation: A 40 event image PowerPoint presentation for The Message of Hope. Includes Bible map images and the tabernacle image. All text can be translated and changed in PowerPoint.

A couple years ago I showed copies of beta-versions of The Message of Hope for Muslims to a faculty member colleague who had been a missionary in the Middle East. At the time he did not seem too interested. He uses “The Story” and likes it. He then left our college for a year to head up the Muslim Studies program at a major seminary. He just came back to our college to teach again. By now he must have had more time to look over The Message of Hope and told me today that he really likes it. So I showed him one of my older versions of The Roots of Faith—Old Testament and he was impressed. He said if we had that in Arabic he would love to teach it to Muslims. In addition to the content and concept, he is impressed with the quality of the materials—and who wouldn’t be? He says the Muslims have a different “story” about the Old Testament, which undermines the gospel. He sees this type of work, such as The Message of Hope and The Roots of Faith, as setting them on the right trajectory.

—PhD College Professor of Old Testament in the USA

FREE Leader's Guide

Just want to let you know that my use of The Way to Joy is going great. I now have four different discipleship classes going on now. On Monday’s at 9:00, I meet with a new believer, Carlos. He was a devout Catholic. The questions he has is just incredible. He has lot of questions about idols, etc. When we finished Monday, he said I want you to teach me to pray! Man I am so thrilled. Today I have two different classes going on—one this morning with five ladies, none of which are in our church yet, but hopefully soon. I have another class tonight, with the youth of the church. I probably have four or five for that class and another Thursday mornings with a man who just started coming to church. His son was saved back in January. Everyone seems to like it so far and I am thrilled to have these materials. I hope to have at least one more class lined up by the end of the month. I met with a Peruvian pastor yesterday and showed him the materials and I will be with his church for an outing the 28th presenting the materials to them. The sky is the limit. Can you tell I am excited? I am totally blown away! I am about having a Pentecostal fit just thinking about it all.

—Aaron, missionary in Peru

The Way to Joy

Children’s Ministry Resources

Good Soil’s resources for reaching and teaching children include the same distinctives and emphases as our adult resources. The Story of Hope, for example, teaches the chronological story of redemption in a way that kids come to understand how the Bible fits together.

Some of these resources are available in non-English languages. And, if not, we are open to working with you on translation projects.

It was my privilege to travel recently to a communist country where it is illegal to teach children about Jesus Christ, as well as to a Muslim country. In both countries, I chose to present Adventures in The Story of Hope to the children’s workers who wanted to reach and disciple their children for Jesus Christ. It was so exciting as the workers saw the beautiful pictures. I was able to tell them how most teachers in America had not seen these pictures or learned how to do chronological Bible teaching. In both countries, children’s teachers went back to their local churches and had a fantastic tool to present the one redemptive plan of God which gives hope to all sinners. These teachers now have a one year plan to teach their children how God always existed and proceed through the rest of the 40 stories. We also taught them how to teach creatively. They really “grabbed hold of” how to use The Story of Hope so that children will understand the redemptive plan of God and have real hope!

—Jim, missionary to children around the world

Gaining Ground with Good Soil

Learning to Share God's Story of Hope in a World of Competing Faiths and Cultures.

Gaining Ground with Good Soil is a story about and for missionaries. In an interesting narrative form, it explains the theology and missiology of evangelism and discipleship of Good Soil E&D. You will love the story of a missionary couple, and their national colleagues, who learn some Biblical principles that revolutionize their ministries—Good Soil principles that can help you to become more effective as well.

The audio book can be downloaded to your phone or pad. Audio clips from the audio book can be used to spice up teaching sessions.

There is a FREE Leader’s Guide for teaching the contents of this book in 12 or more class sessions. See the FREE resources below.

This morning, Josué asked me about how he can share his faith more effectively with his friends at school. I’ve been reading Gaining Ground with Good Soil, a book about evangelism, written by Gil Thomas, a former missionary to Portugal. I’ve been learning a lot from the book and I was able to share some of it with Josué.

—Phillip, missionary intern in France

All the resources needed for teaching Gaining Ground with Good Soil in a small group or class.

FREE Book for Cross-Cultural Missionaries

Gaining Ground with Good Soil is an evangelism and discipleship training narrative—a scaled-down version of the Good Soil Evangelism and Discipleship seminar in a narrative format. The principles gained from this book are applicable for anyone wishing to serve God through Biblical evangelism and discipleship, but is especially instructive and helpful for cross-cultural missionaries.

The realistic, but fictional narrative, around which the book is developed, tells the story of a couple of missionaries who were frustrated and discouraged—to the point of almost giving up—because of their lack of success in evangelism and discipleship on their field. But, the “Good Soil” principles they learned from Bible study revolutionized their ministries. It will help you think through a theology of evangelism and discipleship and help you to present the gospel so that people will clearly understand it, sincerely embrace it, and firmly hold on to it.

Free instructional resources for individual and group study are also available for download. www.GoodSoil.com/FREE

If you are a cross-cultural missionary, with a USA shipping address, and will commit to reading this book, we will send you a FREE (and postage-free) copy of Gaining Ground with Good Soil.
