Transforming lives on four continents

Mission - why go? (issue 3/08)

'Mission – why go' is the theme of this issue of Mission Catalyst.

Features include:

  • an exploration by David Kerrigan on how mission can help us understand God's purpose for our lives
  • a look at the role of mission agencies in a time when individual churches are doing mission for themselves
  • an article from partners on India on the concept of reverse-flow mission

There are also accounts from two ministers who have been on teams with BMS – and how learning, rather than doing, was the most important part of their visits.

You'll also find essential facts and statistics, a Bible reflection and inspiration from BMS mission heroes from the past.
