A New Endorsement

We’ve all encountered people who are “ahead of their time.” They challenge us, inspire us, and often create consternation. The work of mission has, over the course of two millennia, adapted, innovated, and at certain times and places merely survived.

Innovation in Mission is a rich thread in the fabric of change/innovation that will assist the reader to be “ahead of their time.”

David J Jahnke, Regional Director, Asia, BGC International Ministries
