Book Format: Paperback
by: Charles Mellis (Author)
This is a brilliantly written exploration of the community’s role in worldwide mission, reviewing the history of how the church has functioned in fulfilling the Great Commission for the last two thousand years.


  • The author has captured on these pages the dynamics of the combination, for world evangelization, of youth, mobility, and community. He shows how these scriptural principles work, and how they are released through depth of dedication to Christ and his last commandment to "Go...and make disciples of all nations." I'm excited over the message of this book and its potential for the Kingdom. It's a MUST for every Christian leader.
    Loren CunninghamInternational Director, Youth With A Mission
  • This book is unique - a brilliantly written exploration of the role of committed communities in the ongoing world-wide mission of the Church. Not only is it a review of their significance during almost two milennia of Christian expansion, it also contains the mature and creative reflection of a man of singular achievement in the missionary enterprise.Those of us who were with the author during the long months when this book was being written, and who had the privilege of "previews" of the separate chapters, were often excited by the things we learned. We rejoice that this distillation of his insights is now available to the Christian public.
