Reports from around the world.
When one sets out to write about church growth from the perspective of the four Gospels, he discovers himself confronted by a discomfiting fact: the Gospels have nothing specific to say about church growth.
The cooling off of the church in regard to missions is apparent to observers both within and without.
At the InterVarsity Urbana 70 missionary conference, George Taylor chided missions because “very, very few” black Christians are represented on mission fields.
The objective of the Great Commission is thoughtfully analyzed, with narrow and broad definitions. The author holds that disciples in the New Testament sense are simply people won to Christ.
As pointed out in my preceding article on this subject, the unreflective missionary may easily find himself assigned by the people to whom he goes to a role and status that is quite damaging to the task of communicating Christ crossculturally.
