Why Should African Americans Participate in World Missions? A VIDEO

Last summer, MTW took a historic vision trip with a team comprised entirely of African Americans. The group, collectively called RAAD (Reformed African American Delegates), traveled to Australia to learn from and minister to Aboriginals. This team is committed to mobilizing people of color, especially African Americans, in both local and global missions.

Now this instrumental group is calling other African Americans to serve. Why should African Americans be involved in missions? Because it's what the Great Commission commands. Because African Americans bring a unique perspective and can come alongside others in their struggle. The world is waiting for people of color. They're waiting for hope.

Why should African Americans participate in world missions? Watch as these Reformed African-American leaders answer the question.
