Why Global Missions Requires Healthy Churches // Ask Pastor John


The Great Commission isn’t disconnected from the church — it’s given to the church. God designed the local church and missions to be wed together.

Early in January, Pastor John traveled to Louisville to speak at the annual CROSS conference. And one of sessions was a panel discussion hosted by David Platt, with Pastor John, international evangelist Mack Stiles, and pastors Thabiti Anyabwile and Kevin DeYoung. There was a second clip I wanted to share in the podcast on the place of the local church in global missions. Here’s David Platt, talking about one of the major themes in the CROSS conference.
