Whether they know it or not, pastors are often disconnected from churchgoers when it comes to their perspectives on missions.
If our goal is to help people grasp and fulfill the meaning of the Great Commission, we must first answer the question, “why?
What’s the “right” way to do missions? Is the Church being smart and effective? Pastors and U.S. Christians have differing views.
Finances can be a touchy subject—but if our treasure is where our heart is, we need a pulse check when it comes to our giving priorities.

Reclaim Your Church’s Heart for Missions
Over the past few years, we’ve been hit hard by the statistic that only 37% of U.S. Christians can accurately identify the Great Commission. It’s a tragedy to think that Jesus’ final command in Matthew 28:19—to “go and make disciples of all nations”—is being missed.
