Unleashing Spiritual Gifts in Missions: A Conversation with David Rogers

We must understand our God-ordained part in the body of Christ to live on mission.

In this enlightening episode, we sit down with David Rogers, a long-time ABWE missionary in Chile, where he has served with his wife Ruth for over 40 years. As the president of Ministerio Cristiano CRECE, a Spanish language Christian publishing house, and the author of the upcoming book Spiritual Gifts: Identify them through the PRIZM of God’s Grace, David shares his profound insights on identifying and utilizing spiritual gifts in the context of missions.

Since 1984, the Rogers have been committed to partnering with Chilean and Latin American leaders to multiply church planting movements. Their focus is to enable evangelization, discipleship, and training using original Spanish resources. Learn more about their ministry and how to support them.
