Michael has served in mission-related research since 1992, helping with projects like Operation World and the World Christian Encyclopedia, and serving as a consultant to mission agencies. (I (Doug) actually met him on a bus at GCOWE ’95.) His expertise has now expanded to the wider world of nonprofits/charities, evaluation, and planning. If you’re interested in that sort of thing, you can sign up for his “Jaffarian’s Little Newsletter on Nonprofits and Research” at https://michaeljaffarian.com/.
