This is a radical call to mission-minded young adults! Shibley makes it very clear that there is a vast difference between being a missionary and being mission-minded. God is producing a new force of millennial missionaries, and these young adults are making the old church feel uncomfortable.

They are speaking out in school hallways, college campuses and in the breakrooms at their jobs, and they are having an impact. They are unashamedly stepping out and teaching others to live for what really matters most---the exaltation of the Son of God to the ends of the earth!ADD TO CART
