The Mission Podcast hosted Andy Johnson, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. and author of Missions, How the Local Church Goes Global. The podcast was posted June 2, 2019. Major topics included pragmatism, prioritism, and how local churches can do a better job of sending missionaries. Questions that the hosts asked included (paraphrased):
- How is missions currently at a crossroads?
- What does pragmatism look like in missions? What are we concerned about?
- Can you do both reverse engineering and be biblically faithful?
- What do you mean when you say that the mission is primarily spiritual?
- How do you see people responding to the issue of ‘prioritism’ in missions?
- Why is the local church central to missions?
- What are some mistakes you’ve seen a good church make in engaging missions?
- How would you think through and decide who to partner with financially?
- What are some of the pros and cons of trying to reach the nations in our own backyard?
- What about international churches overseas?
- How can listeners follow you and get a hold of your book?
The first three questions directly address issues related to church planting movements. Listen here.
