Who Is a Missionary? (VIDEO)

When you think about a missionary, serving God, what do you picture? Is it a seminary grad sailing to a foreign land or a pastor in a remote mountain village preaching the gospel to an unreached tribe?

Many Christians who have a heart for missions don't feel like they have the right gifts to be a missionary. Allow us to introduce you to men and women serving God and building His Church using vocational skills that you might not picture as missionaries. You'll meet a potter, a graphic designer, a counselor, a concert organist, an entrepreneur, and a technology professional.

Could God be calling you to be a full time missionary? Sometimes the very skills we may think disqualify us from being a missionary are the very ones that God will use for His glory. 

Watch and see how God is using people just like you to build His Church.
