David and Lorene are leaders in church missions mobilization. They specialize in equipping churches to think through and plan sending missionaries into the mission field well, trained, and cared for. In this podcast, we get to know the Wilsons and learn more about their calling to missions.

David is Director of Church Relations at Avant Ministries. He and Lorene make a great writing team. In part one of this two part series, we learn about three of the books they’ve written together: Transforming Missionaries: A Short-Term Mission Guide, Mind The Gaps: Engaging the Church in Missionary Care, and Pipeline: Engaging the Church in Missionary Mobilization.

At the very beginning of part two of our interview, we talk about this article written by Jonathan Trotter.
