Connections: the Journal of the WEA Mission Commission was designed with the following key purposes. First, to challenge global mission leadership with thoughtful perspectives by MC reflective practitioners from around the globe and not just one nation or region. Second, to provide a writing platform for writers whose voice would not be heard otherwise. We wanted to “discover” and affirm women and men, younger and older, from all the MC key constituencies who have something to say. Third, to present the central “voice” of the MC leadership as it spoke into global mission issues.

Connections has now been suspended and the Mission Commission is seeking a new vehicle to share our concerns and priorities. We will move beyond print publications alone to a more appropriate news vehicle. We continue to document key lessons learned by God’s people in mission in a world where Jesus followers are sent from nearly every nation to every nation around the globe to bear witness to Jesus.
