STEM CEO Authors 1st 'Perspectives' Short-Term Mission Article!

Since 1974, more than 70,000 believers in N. America have experienced the Perspectives course. It’s 800-page textbook (the Perspectives Reader), already in the 3rd Edition, contains more than 120 in-depth mission articles — with the notable exception of anything on short-term missions.

The updated 4th Edition of the Perspectives Reader will be going to press this summer 2008, and contained within the “Strategic Perspective” section of the new Reader will finally be an article on short-term missions. STEM CEO Roger Peterson was asked in early March 2008 to provide a 3,000-word article for the new Reader, and on March 31, 2008, Roger submitted the article.

Roger took his Perspectives course for credit in 1990 on the campus of the U.S. Center for World Mission in Pasadena, California. Since that time, Roger has been a Perspectives faculty class instructor, specializing in the “Obligation and Opportunity,” “The Task Remaining” (out of which came the popular Mission Maker Magazine annual article, “GodSpace”), and “World Christian Teamwork.”

May the Lord be glorified through Perspectives on the World Christian Movement, including Roger’s new article on short-term missions! Top Site Award!
