All Christians are called to be on mission in making disciples of Jesus. While fewer American missionaries are being sent in the traditional, career capacity, the opportunities for Christians to be on mission globally are growing. Many of the darkest parts of the world that are closed to missionaries, are open to Christian business people and other professionals. There are growing creative opportunities for Christians to be on mission and make disciples world-wide. While our focus is often on Paul and the other apostles when reading about the wide-reaching missions impact in the Book of Acts, we must remember that the Gospel spread mostly through everyday believers being on mission for Christ. Regardless of one’s background and career, Gospel opportunities abound. Christians, especially those beginning their careers, should consider finding secular employment in strategic locations to partner with church planters in the U.S., overseas missionaries and national church leaders for the sake of furthering the Gospel.
