I was 33 when I walked out of my first International Missions Operations Committee meeting when Bill Morrow (name dropper, I know) said to me, "It's good to have a younger guy at our table, you know...someone whose leadership is ascending." After Googling "ascending" to make sure I hadn't just been dissed by the Gen Supe, I wondered why 33 was considered young and why I was still ascending. By that age, many of my risky notions or radical ideas had been deflated by the reality of everyday life, practical planning, and common sense. In a brand new road trip edition of the Here & There Podcast, I had the chance to ask 12 truly young (late teens/early twenties) and ascending leaders from Master's College & Seminary what they thought about the future of global work. It might be time to invite a few of them to our tables.
