RICHMOND, Va. (BP) -- Recently I was privileged to attend a commissioning service for new International Mission Board missionaries. I was invited by a couple from our church who was preparing to be sent to the nations. During this time, I was reminded of the significance, risk and joy of taking the Gospel to the nations. It reignited a passion in my heart to lead my church to do all we can to fulfill the Great Commission. Fellow pastors may have that same desire but simply don't know how to create a culture where sending is the norm in their church. A pastor may lead a small church and believe only large churches have the resources and wherewithal to send missionaries to the field.
