What do Christians in the U.S. need to know about mission work?
Missions in the world is changing, and that means that Christians in the U.S. need to prepare to support those changes.
There has been a wonderful shift of understanding of the Great Commission in Matthew 28 and the differences between making disciples and planting churches. This should be seen as more of a restorative shift to the focus of relationships leading people to Jesus and becoming his disciples.
Those relationships are built through service. We were forced by Rwanda to display objectively measurable socio-economic impact in order for our visas to be granted.
In retrospect, we see that Rwanda didn’t want more churches since many churches were involved in the genocide itself. What they needed and wanted was discipleship to Jesus and families of believers (churches) that make more disciples.
Today’s guest post comes to us from Lynn McMillon for The Christian Chronicle.
