When we look at the world today, we are facing a huge challenge. As you will read, if you check out the book, the number of people living in poverty in Africa has doubled in the last three decades. There are more people living in slavery today than all the rest of history combined. In the last three decades the number of people who have never heard the good news about Jesus — ever — has risen by 600 million, to 2.8 billion, and is still growing.
Something has to change.
I believe the current mission effort needs more than a tweak. We need to face the fact that although the traditional models of doing missions, or what we call, "full-time ministry", have accomplished amazing things, they are not keeping pace with a fast-changing world.
Some of the major issues facing the church are sustainability, cultural relevancy, generational relevancy, local and global expression of the church, fear of "amateurizing" missions, maintaining support for current missionaries, and the language we use about missions. I address all of these in the book, and my hope is that SCATTER could serve as a tool for your church to engage these issues head-on.
Let's do our part to create an unprecedented movement toward the unreached. Will you join the conversation and help bring your congregations along as you go? We would be honored to journey with you.
