Missions Mobilization in a Post-Pandemic World

After several years of rapid global change, are more or fewer followers of Christ stepping into missions?

In a world that has undergone rapid transformations in recent years, the landscape of missions mobilization has evolved in profound ways.

In this episode, Scott and Alex delve into the multifaceted changes affecting global missions. They examine the impact of significant events and movements, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of nationalism, as well as generational trends that shape the way new workers are motivated to join the Lord’s harvest.
