“Missionary Communication” On The Gospel Coalition

gospelcoalitionLast week Mike had an article published by The Gospel Coalition (TGC). Mike’s article “Missionaries Should Communicate—And Churches Should Demand It” discusses the importance of communication between missionaries and their supporters.

The article contends that missionaries, prayers and supporters are all equally called by God to advance his Great Commission. Each plays a vital role. It is part of the missionary’s responsibility to communicate with the members of his team back home.

Apparently this is a hot topic. The article received over a dozen comments and prompted a few personal e-mails from people who wanted to comment on Mike’s analysis. Overwhelmingly the article was appreciated. As of the publishing of this blog post Mike’s article has been reposted on Facebook 128 times and retweeted 43 times on Twitter.

This is the fourth article of Mike’s that TGC has published. TGC is an interdenominational resource center dedicated to expanding the gospel of Christ. The brainchild of D.A. Carson and Tim Keller, TGC provides articles, blogs, books, sermons, videos and other resources to church leaders, pastors and lay Christians.

It is a great blessing to be able to share a message of missions to such a large readership.
