Our special guest is Paul Borthwick, author of Great Commission Great Compassion: Following Jesus and Loving the World. This book challenges Christians to get outside their comfort zones to share the message of Christ and have compassion on hurting people.
Paul & Christie Borthwick serve on the staff of Development Associates International, a training group dedicated to the character and ministry development of leaders in the under-resourced world. Paul teaches missions at Gordon College and serves as an Urbana/ Missions Associate with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship.
Paul's ministry focuses on three priorities: mobilizing others for cross-cultural ministry, encouraging the ongoing growth of older leaders, and motivating the development of younger leaders. He serves as a resource person, teacher, speaker, and author.
Rick Warren (in Purpose-Driven Life) cites Paul's books A Mind For Missions and How To Be a World-Class Christian as resources that "should be read by every Christian."
