Effective armies have both soldiers on the front lines and soldiers on the supplies lines. The ratio of support and supply personnel to combat soldiers is often called the “tooth-to-tail ratio”. Usually, the amount of supporting roles is much higher than the number of combatants. But each must do their role for the army to be effective.
The same is true in the Lord’s army. There is something for all to do. If we are going to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth, we not only need people on “front lines” taking the gospel to those who have never heard, but we also need those who will support them in this effort.
At Vision Baptist Missions, the focus is to plant churches and train leaders. To effectively train and send missionaries around the world, many support ministries are needed. We are looking for men and women who will help us send and support missionaries.
If God has not called you to be a missionary, there are many ways you can be involved in evangelizing the world. We are urgently looking for people to help with estate planning, video production, graphic design, web developers, writers, and teachers for missionary children. There are also many other opportunities to recruit, train, and support front-line missionaries.
