This twenty-eight-chapter paperback book ( 2013 OMSC Publications) presents case studies and responses given at the Korean Global Mission Leadership Forum convened June 11-14, 2013, at the Overseas Ministries Study Center, publisher of the International Bulletin of Missionary Research. Jonathan J. Bonk, the forum organizer, is OMSC executive director emeritus and senior mission consultant. "Since families are at the core of Protestant evangelical missionary endeavor, mission agencies, sending churches, and families with ministries in a variety of cultural, linguistic, and economic contexts all over the world face a range of expected and sometimes unexpected challenges in regard to the nurture, care, and education of children, the retirement of missionaries, and so on. In addition, missionary families find themselves on the cutting edge of identity issues as their children are reared and educated in cultures quite alien to their home cultures, sometimes marrying across cultures and nationalities, resulting in families scattered across the globe. . . . I believe the case studies in this book speak for themselves." -Jonathan J. Bonk, editor, from the Preface More information about this book is found at www.omsc.org/accountability.shtml
