Episode 1: Interview with Ryan Robertson

Paul Mac

We all can be part of going into all the world to obey the Great Commission. Since God gave the Great Commission to the church, it’s important for local churches to be part of what God is doing around the world. Indeed, there has been a growing call in missions, and rightly so, for the local church to be involved in the Great Commission, and not just specialised agencies. What is the place, then, for mission agencies today?

Is there still a role for Westerners, given the expanding church in the Global South? Is there a place for short term trips and using translators, given the growing emphasis on sharing with people in their heart language? Join Paul Mac as he discusses these questions and more with Ryan Robertson, President of Reaching and Teaching Ministries, in Episode 1 of our very first season of the AccessTruth Podcast.

Paul and his wife, Linda, spent 11 years in Papua New Guinea involved in pioneering church planting in an isolated people group. They were privileged to see God plant a number of churches in that area that continue to thrive today. During the time there, they headed up a translation team that produced a New Testament in the local language. After leaving PNG, Paul and Linda worked for 12 years in leadership and consultative roles with an international mission agency. Today they continue to provide church planting guidance for a number of different teams engaged in some of the world’s most challenging contexts. They are passionate about seeing churches planted that are well equipped to carry on for future generations.
