Going Global | A Congregation's Introduction to Mission Beyond Our Borders (Nelson, King, and Smith)
A part of the Columbia Partnership Leadership Series
The ways to be effective in global missions have changed. The authors believe that content and values must undergird the North American local church s approach to global mission. It is not enough to do something. It is in fact possible to do all of the right things for all of the wrong reasons, with negative results. It is also possible that mission over there can become more about the church at home.
Going Global discusses common principles and practices that will inform and energize your local church as you further your global ministry. This book will assist you as they look for resources to help them balance the agenda of short-term versus long-term mission, fund-raising, and the tension between evangelism and compassionate social ministry.
