They are the keepers of the bridge. The ones who get you in the door or keep you locked outside where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. I'm talking about the much discussed and mostly misunderstood, Missions Pastor (or chair of the missions committee in some churches). They may not hold the keys to death, hell and the grave but they do decide who gets into the church, who gets support and who goes home with nothing at all.
On this episode of the Here & (T)here, Sheldon and his better-than-Matt cohost, Anna Armitage, sit down during Stormaggedon (2 cms) in Vancouver to talk with Pastor Paul Moores about missions giving, church committees and how global workers can better engage with churches. Pastor Paul gives the other side of the shared funding story and encourages churches on how they can better support their missions partners.
This is a great episode for global workers and for church mission teams to listen to so pass it along!
