Missions in an Urbanized, Globalized World

Stream or download the audio recording from this breakout session titled Missions in an Urbanized, Globalized World with Mack Stiles that was delivered at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. Astonishing opportunities exist for gospel witness in a globalized, rapidly urbanized world. But many sending churches are caught flat-footed in their response with old models of missions—models that look suspiciously like fads or even a compromised gospel. So what is the right model? And how do sending churches prepare their people for this brave new world? Mack Stiles, long-time resident in the Arabian Peninsula and now pastor in Iraq, presented a case (and a bunch of stories) for a tried-and-true model—and proven missions strategy—given to us by the founder of our agency, Jesus Christ.
