In this 58-minute session, Zane Pratt, an Associate Professor of Christian Missions at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and co-author of Introduction to Global Missions and a contributor to Theology and Practice of Mission, discusses the context of Christian mission endeavors as the formative place in which the missionary movement must develop.

Christian missions has evolved through history as the church strives to take the gospel to every people group in the world. As we go through our lives, we must realize that the context of an ever-changing culture challenges us to reevaluate the way in which we take the gospel across the street or across the ocean.
