Description: Short-term mission trips are great ways to impact the kingdom. Yet they can lack effectiveness because of mistakes or naiveté on the part of those who go. In this insightful and timely book, David Livermore — who is passionate about effective cross-cultural ministry — calls us to serve with our eyes open to global and cultural realities so we can become more effective cross-cultural ministers. Serving with Eyes Wide Open is a must-have book for anyone doing a short-term mission or service project, whether domestic or overseas.

Serving with Eyes Wide Open helps Christians understand the changing face of Christianity and how that affects short-term missions. In three parts, the author takes a broad look at what the 21st century church is doing on the mission field, the assumptions people make about Christianity, and what it takes to adapt effectively to new cultural contexts. Perfect for all who engage in short-term missions trips — either at home or abroad. This book has strong potential to help equip readers to serve more sensitively.

• “Every youth worker thinking of leading a short-term trip needs to read this book!” — Mark Oestreicher, President, Youth Specialties
• “This is a must, not only for church mission committees, but for anyone who participates in short-term or long-term missions.” — Ruth Tucker, Associate Professor of Missiology, Calvin Theological Seminary
• “A challenging, well-supported, and carefully crafted tool that will transform your missions and service ministries into opportunities.” — Chap Clark, Professor of Youth, Family, and Culture, Fuller Theological Seminary
