Do you have a favorite mission organization you would recommend?
Question from a reader:
I’m a pastor of a fairly new church and would like to connect our church to some other quality mission organizations. Do you have a favorite mission organization you would recommend?
Answer from Randy Alcorn:
Perhaps my favorite is one that flies under the radar because they devote so little to fundraising, and focus all on hands-on ministry: Action International, based in the Seattle area. They have something like 250 missionaries in 28 countries. They are faithful, Bible-based, missionaries with a school of thought exemplified in their founder Doug Nichols, who I know personally, and very well. I have been in his home, seen how he lives and it is refreshing to see a founder of a large mission who lives so modestly. He is sold out to Jesus, and so are the other Action missionaries we’ve met. They do special stuff around the world doing everything from evangelizing and discipling street children to their pastors book share projects where they get quality resource books to pastors in poor countries. Again, time at their website will show you their heart: http://actioninternational.org/
