Travis welcomes Sam George to the show! Sam is the Global Catalyst for Diaspora Ministries with the Lausanne Movement. God is on the move. He is moving people in ways we have never seen.
According to the UN High Commission on Refugees, on the 23 of May 2022, the number of people forced to flee due to persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations, and events seriously disturbing public order had reached more than 100 million people for the first time on record. This means that 1 in every 78 people on earth has been forced to flee. That’s crazy. This means that we are more than likely to encounter people from around the world where we live. And that changes how we go about fulfilling Christ’s mission where we are. It means our churches need to rethink who they are ministering to and how they are ministering. It means we need to rethink what God is doing and join Him in it.
Listen in as Sam, who is the expert on diaspora Christianity, reveals how God is working in the world and learn how we can join Him in it.
