FACE OF GLOBAL MISSIONS
God is accomplishing
His global mission.
The world has changed.
How should missions shift?
God is accomplishing His global mission. We know this because over the last century, Christians in Africa have gone from 9 million to almost 700 million. We know this because the percentage of global Christians in the Majority World has risen from 30% to 70% over the last century. We know this because former mission fields are now powerful missionary forces.
The world has changed. Doors closing to Westerners are opening to those from the Majority World. In some places, globalization is yielding to nationalism.
