Are Southern Baptists Capable of Being Missional?". He asks a good question because going on missions personally is not what we have been taught.
IMHO, for years and years, we taught the church they could participate in missions by giving to Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong so that missionaries could do the work of missions for us. This was the mantra until recently (within last 15-20 years) when we began to encourage our people not only to give but to go. In my previous church, a lot of the pushback I received was exactly that: we give and they go; we're doing our part.
We taught the churches for 100 years to give and the missionaries would go. We created that mindset and it's going to take a while to change it, if we ever can.
