    We are delighted to release the second volume of Pro Pastor: A Journal of Grace Bible Theological Seminary! In our new issue of the journal, we continue our goal of making deep theology accessible to non-scholars.

    • Paul Snider (Indonesia), “The Prerequisite of Missions: Praying for More Missionaries”
    • Ryan Bush (HeartCry, Latin America Coordinator; GBTS), “A Case for the Missionary as Pastor”
    • E. D. Burns (Southeast Asia), “A Case for the Missionary as Preacher”
    • Taylor Walls (Ecuador), “‘Fellow Workers for the Truth’: The Relationship between Missionaries and Missionary-Supporters in 2 and 3 John”
    • Salvador Gomez (Dominican Republic), “Not a One-Local-Church Job: The Practical Benefits of Strong Interchurch Relations in Missions”
    • Jeff Bys (Kenya), “The Importance of Mercy Ministry in Missions”
