Today’s guest, Ron Surgeon, works as an elder, training believers in how to minister to the people around them. He uses church planting methods, not only abroad, but also locally. He shares about the ways in which God has been working in his life and ministry. He also gives listeners the encouragement and ways in which they can spread the Gospel throughout their areas. One step of introducing yourself can make all the difference.

As a listener of Engaging Missions, will give you a free audio book when you sign up for a 30-day free trial to check out their service. With over 150,000 titles to choose from, you’re sure to find one you like.

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.
