Three Tasks of a Good Missionary

25 Oct

Whether you cross the street or cross the ocean, here are three challenges that all of us face if we want to live for Christ and share his message with our world.

  1. Learn the language: educate yourself on how to talk in a way that people can understand and to which they can relate and eventually respond
  2. Study the culture: become so sensitized to that culture that you can operate effectively within it
  3. Translate the gospel: translate it into its own cultural context so that it can be heard, understood, and appropriated

Cited in The Rise of the Nones: Understanding and Reaching the Religiously Unaffiliated, by James Emery White
