Failed Missionary

Sat 11:30 AM | GooseCast
Thousands of dollars raised, passport stamps collected, zero lives saved. Failed Missionary explores topics and narratives related to the modern approach to missions and questions the odd ways we’ve interpreted the “great commission” from the vantage point of former and current missionaries and thought-leaders.
