On this week’s episode of Engaging Missions, Steve Addison returns to share about his new book, Pioneering Movements. Through his books and personal actions, he seeks to train people in how to make disciples. In the interview, he discusses the purpose behind his book and what readers can learn from it.

Steve also talks about certain things that God has shown him throughout the process of writing the book. From methods to connection, he delves into the ways in which we as believers can better spread the Gospel. He hopes for us to pioneer the way for others to do the same.

    Personally, I recommend the Bible. Just about any translation. You can't go wrong to have God's word available when you're driving to work, out for a walk, or working out. It's what I did when I joined Audible over 7 years ago.
