Eschatology and the “need for speed” in missions

The approach that a missionary or evangelist employs can be greatly influenced by their home culture. Imagine two missionaries: the first from a culture that values respect at all costs, and the second that values success at all costs. How might this show up in their approach?

The Posture of Peacemaking

When we think of peacemaking, we think of it in the context of reconciliation. In order to achieve true reconciliation and lasting peace, we need to begin with understanding God’s original intent for humanity.

More Missionaries Please

Setting out into the world with God’s Word has always been, and will always be, challenging. But I've seen a care from the CRC and Resonate Global Mission to look after and equip missionaries in healthy, effective ways.
