Now, 20 years later, we stand on the edge of tomorrow. Here are some of the goals we’ve laid out for 2015:

*** Grow from 6000 subscribers to over 7000
*** Add a form to make it easier to submit items
*** Finish the year in the black
*** Feature a prayer item in each edition
*** Stay relevant and vibrant to pursue our mission, as outlined below:

*** Identify & promote helpful resources, conferences, websites, agencies, individuals, etc.
*** Analyze & capsulate in layman terms the current trends in global mission, along with their potential impact on the world of missions
*** Challenge & motivate evangelical Christians toward greater involvement in finishing the Task of global evangelism
Inspire others to help in passing the baton of responsibility and initiative in world evangelism
*** Form a “brigade” so that, shoulder to shoulder, we can finish the Task that Jesus assigned us in Matthew 28:19-20.

Will you band together with us in 2015 so that, side by side, we can accomplish these goals? Please pray that God will guide our every step together.
