Equipping for the Harvest
When Gary Bauman decided to attend Magazine Training International’s writer and editor training in Manila in 2005, he was only an occasional writer for Japan Harvest, a publication of the Japan Evangelical Missionary Association (JEMA). He wasn’t even sure he belonged at a conference like that. He had no idea his life was about to change and the things he was learning would equip him for a totally new role–that of editor.
Gary says, “I felt like my only qualification for being the editor was that I was a reader. But I was at a transition point in my own ministry at the time, so I stepped up and took on the responsibility.”
Because he is committed to grow in his skills over the years Gary has repeatedly accessed MTI resources and conferences. He also introduced Wendy Marshall to MTI training. She started as a contributing writer for the magazine and now serves as managing editor.
The ministry of Magazine Training International is often behind the scenes – equipping those God has called to pursue excellence. As MTI equipped Gary and Japan Harvest, they equip those serving in Japan, so missionaries in Japan can continue to make disciples!
