The Mission Handbook has been in continuous publication every three years since 1953. It is a reference source to help new inquirers discover what agency fits their passions, interests, and gifting. It is one of the best places to look when someone is considering joining an agency. The book’s newly researched information and data guides the inquisitive person to a country of interest or specific ministry calling. Professors and researchers use the data to understand the state of North American missions, viewing trends in financial giving, resources, and personnel serving in short-term, mid-term, and long-term missions. Mission leaders, both here and abroad, use the book as a source for discovering peers and potential mission partners in various ministries and/or countries around the world, as well as strategizing what areas of the world are without adequate witness
