"Tom Telford's new book provides shining models of churches who are deeply involved in global outreach. In a time when the church in North America shows overall decline, these stories of commitment and obedience give us hope for a bright future. Missions is far from dead in the American church, and here's the proof. Telford both informs and energizes the reader with these snapshots of local congregations who are hoisting the missions flag higher than ever before." --Woody Phillips, president, United World Mission"Tom Telford's great passion is to see local churches of any size maximize their potential for global involvement. That's what this book is about. He points us to great case studies from which every church can learn. Then he instructs us on how the strengths of these churches can be integrated into our own churches to help us increase our impact for the kingdom of Christ. This is must reading for any church leader who desires a congregation that is outwardly focused." --Paul Borthwick, Development Associates International"Tom Has hit another one out of the park." --Dave Mays, ACMC Great Lakes Regional Director "Hardly any book can rock you, shock you, thrill you, like a book that simply presents the awesome actual stories of real churches that have punched through to brilliant success in ways that others can follow. This trim powerful book is absolutely essential for pastors and people lay and ordained. Has anyone a better grasp of that reality than Tom Telford?" --Dr Ralph Winter, director, US Center of World Mission"Tom Telford has done an extremely effective job of highlighting the diverse strategies employed in some of America's foremost missions programs. However, he is more than a missions scorekeeper--over a period of 15 years he lifted his home church into the big leagues by managing a far reaching missions program. From the pews of our church to Mongolia, there are people who have been mobilized for missions through Tom's energetic and spirtual leadership." --Daniel Chittick, Chelten Baptist Church Mission Committee, Dresher, Pennsylvania
