So Many Flavours to Choose From!
If you've done some looking, you've probably noticed there are a boatload of missions around these days. So, how can you tell them all apart? How can you choose which one, if any, you should join or support?
By and large, each mission has a certain focus and way of doing things. The task of reaching the nations for Christ is too big for any one organization, so missions tend to focus on smaller subtasks, like Bible translation or radio ministry. Others take a geographical focus, like China, or the Middle East. Some missions work in a variety of places, but do things in a unique way, like blitz-evangelism with teams of young people, or using only national workers. Other missions seek to re produce their particular flavour of theology and practice.
