Sandra Dorsainvil and Minister Nicole Cox, the creative minds behind this podcast. You can hear their voices again in Season 3 which features voices coming from youth, young adults and global servants who host volunteer teams. Do tune in on May 11th when known co-author, Steve Corbett of When Helping Hurts, will be the featured guest.
Season 2 has episodes hosted by a few Special Assistants to STM, like Rev. James Williams from the Philadelphia Baptist Association, Lynne Punnett from the Michigan region, Rev. Michele Turek from California region, Rev. Dr. Cassandra Jones from ABCOTS region and Rev. Dr. John Grisham from the Great Rivers region.
Future episodes will have us criss-crossing the United States and the globe and will invite listeners to build bridges of reflections after listening to episodes. The short-term mission movement has evolved. Some conventions have stopped using the term and prefer action verbs. Missiologists like Dr. Jay Matenga speak of embracing “Xenophilia” as sending agencies and servants break away from colonial thinking. How can we encourage more of our volunteers to move from a transactional mindset and lean more into a covenantal relationship when serving in Kingdom building as God’s ambassadors?
Future episodes of B4M, Bridges For Mission will enlighten, challenge, remind us of our calls on earth.
