New Initiatives in Missions
Many of the churches God has established through SIM are now mature, and some are already playing a role in mission. Dr. Howard Brant has not only been advocating, preaching, and teaching on “emerging missions” for many years, he has also been putting it into practice—including a short-term outreach by 10 Ethiopian church leaders in India, which he helped lead. His goal is to help prepare a highway for people from all nations to become involved in world mission.
