Pastor, consultant, and award-winning author, Art Beals challenges churches to see each member as a potential missionary; in so doing, churches return full circle to the New Testament church model of ministry. Founded in trinitarian theology, Beals's practical advice explores congregation-based mission, explains how to creatively mobilize resources for mission, and discusses how to train and care for volunteers. Beals's model for outreach emphasizes principles for partnership that provide mutual empowerment and a longer-term commitment.

Section One describes congregation-based mission; Section Two explains how to mobilize resources for mission creatively. Section Three suggests ways to train and care for volunteers, and Section Four discusses expanding mission once outreach has been established.

Rev. Beals is the author of Beyond Hunger: A Biblical Mandate for Social Responsibility, which was awarded the Gold Medallion Book Award by the Evangelical Christian Literature Association in 1986. He has served as pastor in churches in Oregon, Washington State, and in Manila, Philippines. Beals is founder of World Concern International, which funds ministries of partnership in some of the world's poorest areas. He serves currently as a consultant and Partnership Facilitator to the PCUSA Worldwide Ministries Division.
