Now there is no reason not to gather your group, pick an idea, and start doing missions. Ready . . . set . . . GO!
About the Authors
Diana Davis is considered the “ideas” lady. She understands missional living. Having served alongside her pastor husband, she has experienced missions involvement in all types of church settings—small, large, rural, city, and church plants. A prolific writer, she is the author of four books and hundreds of published articles for leading outlets such as Baptist Press, Rick Warren’s “Pastor Toolbox,” Let’s Worship, and Deacon magazine. While she holds a master of theological studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, it is her life-on-mission experience that qualifies her to write with such practicality and vision. A Texas native, she and her husband, Steve, now call Florida home. They have three children and five practically perfect grandchildren.
