Even if you are not called to be a missionary, you are called to live a missional lifestyle. David P. Jacob is a missionary and teacher who encourages others to live missionally. Right now, he is the director of Center for Missionary Mobilization and Retention. The organization works to help those who are called to be missionaries around the world.

David shares about his new book, It’s Your Call, which focuses on the importance of seeking God above calling. He talks about how to develop a missional lifestyle and how every part of the Body of Christ is important. Whether it’s finances, prayer, or encouragement, each believer has a part to play in the Great Commission.
