The Lord has been raising up and sending workers in innovative ways to disciple the nations. Yet there is a gap between the ministry and marketplace cultures. Each is standing on their side of the bank wondering how to build the bridge. The bridge is not broken, it has never been built.
The approach to working in the nations is changing so fast, it is necessary to change the way we change. The model of the last century to commission and send missionaries is just about over.
