Abstract:

"Being on mission changes everything. God is clearly using this generation to reach the nations. Exciting new research shows millions of teenagers today are taking part in religious missions or service projects. What's more, there's overwhelming evidence that students who participate in such outreach develop a greater commitment to biblical Christianity. Indeed, as we change other people's lives by spreading the story of Christ's redemptive work, we too are spiritually transformed. In TransforMission, youth ministry specialists Michael Wilder and Shane Parker unpack this growing movement, determined to expand it by thoughtfully exploring key questions like 'What mechanisms is God using to achieve this advance in mission?' and 'What is taking place in the lives of believers who obey this call?'"--Publisher's Description.
