Go to Grow
A book that explains why every believer would benefit from participating on a short term mission.
One of the great needs we have in the West is for deeper discipleship amongst believers. Another need is for those believers to be motivated for mission on a daily basis.
With 24 years of mission leadership experience, David McDougall has observed that short-term missions benefit not only the target communities but also nurtures spiritual maturity and growth in those who participate on the missions and prepares them for greater service in their local church.
David believes that every person has something to offer on a missions team and shows, with practical and often amusing examples, how the lives of team members can be transformed through the experience.
This book is a ‘must read’ for anybody serious about fulfilling the great commission. With practical examples, exercises and advice, it is a useful resource on both a congregational and individual level.
