African Americans make up about 12 to 13 percent of the U.S. population, but less than 1 percent of the American missionary force to the world. Why is this? Is it changing? What can be done to change it? Experience and the current events of today tell us that now is the time! African Americans, with the right biblical perspective, proper training, partnership, and cross- cultural exposure, can and will become a participating force in the advancement of the Great commission. Our contention is that in the cause to reach the nations for Christ, a large part of the body of Christ (the African American Church) has for years been “MIA” (Missing in Action). There exist several reasons for this:

    • A lack of knowledge of what’s happening in global missions
    • A need to redefine the term “missionary” in the African American community
    • A lack of mission education and training
    • A continued emphasis on “home” issues
    • Amnesia in the Black Church – “forgetting its role”
    • Jumping the financial hurdle – AA’s can’t relate to the current missionary structure of fund raising
    • Cultural barriers and restraints

This webinar will address these issues with an emphasis on mobilizing people of color in this current environment of ethnic and racial discord and challenging all people to be on mission with God together.
