If you want people to think locally, get them to think globally first. That will give them meaning and purpose to have a big picture view for getting the job done.
Missions is part of the bigger picture that needs to be communicated to the church by its leadership. Missions isn't simply one of the programs a church has. It's THE program. Everything else is accomplished as a by-product of being a church that reaches the lost to the uttermost parts of the world. Everything else you do in ministry happens on the way to reaching God's end goal. It's reaching home, your region and the world simultaneously.
