During those years he has created and taught a range of undergraduate and graduate Bible College courses relating to the mission responsibility of the local church. Becoming Global, the product of his consulting and teaching, is intended for church leaders and mission enthusiasts in local churches of all denominations. Building on a biblical theology of mission, this book provides local churches with biblically informed, practical steps for extending their global ministry in ways appropriate to the size and structure of their particular church.”
