Three Shifts to More Robust Global Engagement

As the world gets flatter it will be increasing important for the American church to shift how it engages with the global church.

NewThing North America Regional Director Dave Dummitt argues there are three essential shifts to be made.

  1. Shift from mission to global church planting.
  2. Shift to collaboration
  3. Shift from a lower investment in many projects to major investments in fewer projects.

I couldn’t agree more. The American church has a real opportunity to be part of something big and beautiful that God is doing in the world. The only question is: will it?

At NewThing we are committed to making these shifts together.

What other shifts do you think the American church needs to make to engage better with the global church? I’d love to hear from you.
