2014 Spring Anthology
Movement of Peoples
International borders and cultural boundaries now give way to the movement of peoples at a rate unprecedented in human history. As a result, new opportunities to make disciples of all nations are literally arriving at our doorstep.
Never before have so many ethnic groups have been accessibly represented within reach of everyday relationships with Christians in local churches, schools, workplaces and communities-both here at home in North America and abroad.
Four combined forces of flux bring the mission field to us: the scatter effect of immigration and migration; the high-speed connections of globalization the magnetic pull of urbanization; and the bright light of justice exposing exploitation.
On these pages, pastors and Great Commission influencers present first-hand experiences, strategic insight and compelling data to inform and inspire our mission among the diasporas of our day.
