Mobilizing the African-American in Missions – No Longer MIA

Mobilizing the African-American in Missions – No Longer MIA

Friday @ 1:30pm

African-Americans make up about 12 percent of the U.S. population, but less than 1 percent of the American missionary force to the world. Why is this? Is it changing? What can be done to change it? Experience tells me that now is the time! This presentation will address reasons why AAs are MIA (Missing in Action) with an emphasis on challenging AAs and all people to be on mission with God, to seize their moment in global mission. The objective is to debunk a question that is asked by many on the mission field “Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?”
