Portada
William Carey Library, 1995 - 259 páginas
In world missions, the author proposes, the local church is the biblical sending body through which missionaries serve. The author places emphasis upon the practical outworking of the mission responsibilities of the local church as well as its relationship to mission agencies, missionary personnel, and Christian schools.

I appreciate the fact that this book recognizes that churches, mission agencies, and schools each have a critical role to play in God's mission. There are not many resources that address the collaboration that can and must happen between these different organizations. I am only aware of this book and the resources from http://www.catalystservices.org that focus on the topic. For those in churches and agencies seeking to advance God's purposes globally this book can be a valuable resource for understanding how collaboration between churches and agencies can quicken the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
