What is God calling you to do?

Christ called His followers to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Simple enough, right? But not everyone can go to the ends of the earth, or we’d be abandoning the lost here at home. So, how are people supposed to determine whether they should stay or go, whether or not they’ve received “the call”?

This updated edition of The Missionary Call explores the biblical, historical, and practical aspects of discerning and fulfilling God's call to serve as a missionary. Using Scripture and lessons from actual missionaries, Dr. Sills cuts through the prevailing confusion to offer much needed biblical wisdom and clarity.

This volume also includes pertinent new content on:

  • how business professionals overseas can participate in missions
  • the advantages and disadvantages of using technology to do missions work long-distance
  • how globalization and urbanization are changing missions today
  • the pros and cons of short-term mission trips and how to do them effectively
  • and more!
