Pastor: Global Evangelism ‘Tragically Neglected’ posted by jwatson on May 08, 2012
An evangelical pastor recently declared that global missionary work by American pastors has been “tragically neglected.”
David Platt, senior pastor at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Ala., told those gathered at an evangelical conference last week in Louisville, Ky., that while local missions and ministry “are totally necessary” evangelism abroad is necessary also.
“Pastors who believe that God is sovereign over all things will lead Christians to die for the sake of all peoples,” he stressed.
Platt told those gathered at the Together for The Gospel conference about his experiences abroad and how recently he had been in Northern Yemen in the Arabian Peninsula.
