Going Global: A Congregation’s Introduction to Mission Beyond Our Borders. (Chalice Press: 2011)
Going Global provides an introduction to the exciting world of transformational mission in the global context of ethnic divisions, economic disparity, and violence. The authors write for church members who want a deeper understanding of the church’s mission to bear witness in word and deed. The 8 chapters cover the theology and the practice of mission in the context of globalization, the growth of the church in the Global South, and the relative decline of the Christian faith in many developed countries.
Going Global treats the sensitive topics of international partnerships, short term missions, dangers of dismissing local knowledge, management of community based projects, and the critical importance of humility. An appendix of promising practices provides recommendations for congregational mission committees and individuals interested in international service.
Going Global was written by Gary Nelson (President of Tyndale University College and Seminary), Terry Smith (Executive Director, Canadian Baptist Ministries) and Gordon King.
