This view will influence your view of missions in your church.November 1, 2017JohnnyLafayette, TNAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5How can a church accomplish the mission given to us by Jesus Christ and do it in a way that would pleasing to God and be more than just a punching off of a checklist? That is the question that is answered in Missions: How the Local Church Goes Global.
Missions: How the Local Church Goes Global is part of 9Marks Building Healthy Churches Series and is written by Andy Johnson, Associate Pastor of Capital Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. In this book Johnson gives us some insightful and practical guidelines for having a Biblical missions ministry in our local churches.
The forward by David Platt is just about worth the purchase of the book. In this book you will find the author beginning first with the Word of God as it speaks to missions. The author has a deep sense of the glory of God and a love for the gospel and it comes out on the pages of this book. This book is very much gospel centered.
The author addresses the question of how a church can do missions well. What do we need to look for in a missionary that we partner well? How can we be a help and not a harm to those we partner with? How can we involve more of our congregation in personally being involved in the missions ministry? How can we avoid the pitfalls that some churches find themselves in partnering with missionaries? What does a healthy partnership look like? Those are the questions that are addressed in the heart of this book and practical advice is given.
Probably one of the most helpful parts of the book that I intend to refer back to is chapter 6 on reforming short-term missions. Not only does he speak to what a short term mission trip should be so that it is helpful, but he also gives ten points that a participant should consider when going on such a trip. This should be given to every participant to read before he or she agrees to go on such a trip. It has made me relook at my own personal short term mission trips.
This book is a short read that is filled with practical truth. It challenged me to think how I have done missions. It challenged me to allow the gospel to infect everything that we do as a church. It needs to be on the shelf of every pastor as a resource to help keep his ministry in missions on track. Im thankful to have it on mine.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was glad to do that.
