When Is a Missionary’s Job ‘Done’?

The decision of when to leave is even harder as the decision of whether to go. According to an ABWE Executive Director the answer depends on how success is defined.

What is “success” in missions? It’s not just souls saved.

One of the most complex decisions for the missionary has to do with when the task is “complete.” If we define success too loosely, we risk withdrawing from the field prematurely. But if we define success rightly, an ABWE Executive Director explains, we’ll have the right foundation to build future partnerships with national leaders and their churches.
