If you are exploring doing something extraordinary for the glory of God among the nations, Ask A Missionary will give clarity and answers for a journey into missions. Because they have “been there,” over one hundred missionaries from around the world, including Elisabeth Elliot, George Verwer, Phyllis Kilbourn, and Bill Stearns, share their insightful wisdom and practical advice on everything from making the decision to go, to stepping into a new life once on the field, and everything in between. - How can I know if God is leading me to become a missionary? - How do I select a mission organization? - What type of academic or practical training should I consider? - How will I be funded? The treasures amassed in this book will guide you toward serving in the most wonderful, challenging, God glorifying, eternity-impacting endeavor in the world: missions.

Review:

"I highly recommend this book for anyone, any age, considering missions-related ministry." —Don Parrott, President, Finishers Project / MissionNext "John McVay has more passion than anyone I know for mobilizing people to become effective missionaries. This book combines his passion with the expertise and practical advice from over 100 missionaries!” —John Crouch MD, President, In His Image International "This book is like having a dozen missionary friends at your side, coaching you with kindness and clarity. Who knew wisdom could be so encouraging?" -- Steve Hawthorne, co-editor, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement "The questions in this book are the ones being asked by my students. The answers given are superb. I’m going to require my students to read Ask a Missionary." - Howard Culbertson, Professor, Southern Nazarene University "Do your students want advice from a number of missionaries who’ve been there? This book has it. I will use this as a reference to help me—and many others—for years to come." - Scott Moreau, Professor at Wheaton College and Editor Evangelical Missions Quarterly "People fear what they don’t understand. This resource answers the questions most commonly asked by prospective missionaries. I would love to put this into the hands of every student we meet." - Claude Hickman, Executive director, The Traveling Team
