The Great Commission is a crucial part of the Christian faith, but many believers don’t even know what it means. Mike Falkenstine comes to remind us of its importance and how followers of Jesus can live out that Commission. He also shares resources for those who want to take the first step of sharing the Gospel. Mike also has strong connections in China through his ministry. He plans on sending a team of Chinese missionaries to reach different people groups throughout China. Mike’s love for Jesus pushes him to share about what He has done. He shows us the need to obey Jesus and make disciples of all nations.
