Here is a message you should listen to if you are wrestling with whether to get involved in pioneer missions or theological education (though I admit these are not mutually exclusive!).
The message is from David Sills at the 2011 Desiring God National Conference in his address, Pioneer Missions and Theological Education.
Darren Carlson is the Founder and President of Training Leaders International. As President, Darren oversees the general direction of the ministry and serves as an advocate for pastors with little access to formal training and thoughtful cross-cultural theological engagement. You can connect with him on Facebook and Twitter.
