Developing New Missionaries in the Local Church (Audio)

By Staff, Oct 23, 2018
We all want our missionaries to thrive but the statistics are a bit overwhelming. The vast majority of missionaries leave the mission field before they finish their term, yet the top reasons for this are preventable. The key to being a strong sending church begins long before the missionary ever leaves. This seminar focuses on how the local church can take a leading role in preparing her members for missionary service. The secret sauce for developing new missionaries might just be RUF International. 

Listen as Jerry Gibson, senior director of missions and church planting at Park Cities Presbyterian, and Al LaCour former RUF International coordinator, discuss how churches can help better equip future missionaries.

This seminar was recorded live at the 2017 PCA Global Missions Conference in Dallas.
