How Not to Send Marketplace Workers

Most pastors honestly don’t know where to begin in sending “non-traditional” workers overseas well. In today’s post, we share a recent podcast episode where Larry McCrary sits down with our own Bradley Bell to have a candid discussion of the learning curve this has been for Brad as he has stepped into his somewhat recent role as a Lead Pastor of a sending church. The two offer some helpful things to think through for pastors to be just as intentional with ‘alternative pathway’ sent ones as we are with traditional ones.
