Current Projects

  • Living on Mission: The Global Component of the Missional Lifestyle (2010) – This is a missions education book that will be published primarily as a resource for the Christian & Missionary Allinace. I am primary author, but am also editing some chapters being submitted by others. The book examines first the biblical-theological basis for missions and provides a brief history of missions. The second part is more practical, laying out ideas for year-round missions emphasis within the local church.
