Former BCOM student and BIM associate, Paul McKaughan (’61), was on campus June 10 to meet with associates and to speak in chapel. God has given him a unique platform of ministry as an encourager, cross-pollinator and helper to mission and ministry leaders.
Missions can be expressed in the following words today:
- Meaning – Short term bursts instead of long term streams of missionaries
- Multiplication – New Christians in former unreached areas
- Transformation – Of ministries and lives
- Cooperation – Collaboration between individuals and ministries
- Communication – This generation is gathering on the internet and there is ongoing contact with people who show an interest in Christ.
As Paul shared, history tends to start with us. We can decide to be faithful or disobedient. If we are disobedient, we will miss out on what God has. Our job is to be faithful. Faithfulness is our responsibility; success is in God’s hands.
