Product Description

It happens - in preparation for a missions trip we can concentrate more on what we're going to do than on how we're going to do it. Our plan might not be God's plan, and finding out God's plan for the mission trip can insure that we do whatever we do in the right spirit. We need to realize that those on the mission field are human beings, not just 'them', and we need to understand that keenly. Focusing on the Gospel is the key in preparing for the trip, whether it stays on course or if it veers wildly off what we have set as the itinerary. Embracing the idea of being ambassadors for Christ in the missions field and bringing the Gospel to unreached people should be our goals, not simply following checklists or sticking to a rote game plan. Mission Trips That Matter addresses the whole person, providing resources as well for the short-term missions-minded Christian.

Publisher's Description

Webster Dictionary defines mission as a specific task with which a person or group is charged. Richter views mission as an experience which widens an individual or groups experience to be enlighten in their Christian faith. It is through our faith we are able to venture forth into the world and fully embrace an embodied life of Christ. This book is not a checklist for budgets, meals, or fundraising, rather it is a text to prepare the heart of leaders as they prepare to lead others through transformational mission experience. Richter pays particular attention to Christian practices that can be nurtured as a result of service projects and mission trips.

From the Circuit Rider review: "Don Richter, a Presbyterian minister and associate director of the Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People of Faith, was founding director of the Youth Theology Institute at Candler School of Theology. He has taught Christian education, co-edited Way to Live: Christian Practices for Teens, and led many mission trips. His rich collection of experience comes together in this book exploring mission trips as a crucible for Christian formation." (Click here to read the entire review.)
