TransforMission: Making Disciples through Short-Term Missions
by Michael S. Wilder and Shane W. Parker
Remarkably, thirty percent of North American teenagers—millions of people
between the ages of 13 and 17—have engaged in religious missions or service
projects. Building on this statistic, the authors of TransforMission
short-term mission is one way God is taking the gospel to the nations and,
concurrently, transforming the lives of these student participants.
Writing to youth ministers, missiologists, church leaders, adult volunteers,
and post-high school students, they assess strategies for further promoting
this kind of involvement by exploring several questions:
- What mechanisms is God employing to achieve this advance in mission?
- What is taking place in the lives of believers who are obediently
participating in the fulfillment of the Great Commision?
- What are the theological and theoretical foundations for the life
transformation that is occurring?
- What is the most effective means of conducting short-term mission
