Paul Douglas, previously based in China with his wife Helen and young family, now preaches the bible at Hope Community Church on a regular basis and continues to be involved in several projects in China. In this message, Paul strips away some of myths and misconceptions of mission work and gets down to some more practical concerns. He shows from the bible how we are called to be Christians and to serve God with our lives, the fallacy of ‘The Call’ to missionary service, and talks about the practicalities of culture shock, the unfinished task (40% still unreached), and the many and varied forms of serving God through telling others about Jesus Christ. 

Paul Douglas giving an insiders perspective and a beginner’s guide to the in’s and out’s of mission work, preached on the 27th of November, 2017.
