The Making of a Missionary

Full Product Description

The goals of Volume V are to assist the missionary in successfully arriving on the mission field and remaining there with an effective ministry. Two major problems in recruitment and deployment of missionaries are the great length of time missionaries are on deputation, and the 50% attrition rate for return to the field after the first term of service. This volume addresses both issues. Beginning with the call of the missionary, there is a detailed discussion of deputation, and a smaller section on mission boards. Many missionaries are not able to successfully adapt to the foreign field. A substantial section of the book on cultural anthropology outlines many of the adjustments for the missionary, as well as the symptoms and treatment of culture shock. There is a short review of the importance of worldview in approaching evangelism, and a brief section on the missionary's adaptation upon returning to the USA.

The Making of a Missionary by Robert D Patton was published by Old Paths Publications, Incorporated in June 2012. The ISBN for The Making of a Missionary is 9780986014307.
