Item description for Out of the Comfort Zone: Vision, Grace, Action by George Verwer...
Overview Respected missionary and Christian leader George Verwer sums up his life experience with mission work-as a sender, doer, and trainer-and talks straight about what is really needed in missions in the 21st century. After forty-three years as leader of Operation Mobilization, one of the top missions organizations in the world, George Verwer declares the twenty-first century is no time for business as usual. No longer can or should mission agencies "compete" against each other for territories or funds. No longer should they be dogmatic on minor theological differences. To get the job done, mission workers and organizations need a grace-awakened approach. In Out of the Comfort Zone, Verwer identifies the key elements for working together to reach today's world for Christ.

A man's life lessons Apr 13, 2001
George Verwer, the founder and current international director of Operation Mobilization (OM), writes this book after 40 years of trying and motivating kingdom work. Having worked with so many people (over 100,000 people have been through OM since the late '50s) from all over the world (over 60 nationalities represented within OM) his insight and knowledge into world missions are pratically unmatched today. The cornerstone of this book is the need for a more 'grace awakened' and balanced approach to world missions. Mr. Verwer clearly spells out simplistic and encouraging solutions to many of the key issues facing the church today, such as: tensions between being and doing, leadership, using only nationals as missionaries, and many more.
