News Briefs – Pat Noble has been the “news sleuth” for the Missions Catalyst since 2004. In addition to churning out the news, she is working to create a SWARM (Serving World A Regional Mobilizers) in Northern New York using the NorthernChristian.org website. She is the mission leader in her local church, and an avid reader and follower of world news. Producing the Missions Catalyst News Briefs twice a month is probably the biggest job in keeping our magazine going, so we appreciate Pat’s hard work.

Shane now speaks and writes for Frontiers, works on catalyzing church-planting movements among Muslims in Europe and is developing collaborative funding efforts for strategic workers. He and his wife, Ann, have five kids who attend five different schools and universities. They live and work in the mountains of southern Colorado. Shane’s articles are some of the most popular in Missions Catalyst; we’re glad to have him around.
