"The U.S. is the fourth largest mission field behind China, India, and Indonesia with 40% of pre-Christian culture located in the Western U.S. With such a high statistic, church planting is essential for the healthy growth of the Kingdom in both the U.S. and abroad." -Jeff Harris, The Greenhouse Effect, Aug. 2007 issue of The Leadership Summit email from Willow Creek Association.
Did I read that right? Yes, we live in the 4th largest mission field in the world.
Let that sink in.
So I'll ask the question again?
Are you the missionary or the mission field? Because Jesus said, "Follow me and I'll make you fishers of men." Are you fishing? That is, are you the missionary or the mission field.
