Missionary Talks 06: Definitions

This week I take the time to define some of the terms that you will hear in Missionary Talks. This will help familiarize you with some words that we use often in our talks with missionaries that will help you enjoy the conversations more.

You will hear me mention mission boards quite a bit in this episode. I did not point this out, but it is worth noting that there are many missionaries who do not work through a board, but use their sending church to do the work that a board normally would fulfill.

I tried to stay simplistic in the definitions, which means that there was a lot of material not covered. This episode does not go into why missionaries do what they do. Nor does it cover missions philosophy. There are many good books written on this subject. This is really just a definition of terms.

If you are a missionary, please drop me a message and we will see if we can get you on the show. Though I have always released the shows on Saturday in the past, it was never my intention to do so. Saturday is a hectic day for me. I was planning to release them on Mondays. It was just that when I got started, I could not wait to get the first show up and it was ready on a Saturday. […]
