This is a radical call to mission-minded young adults! Shibley makes it very clear that there is a vast difference between being a missionary and being mission-minded. God is producing a new force of millennial missionaries, and these young adults are making the old church feel uncomfortable. He is taking them into areas of the community where society has turned its back or where it has become too complacent, and they are winning souls like never before. They are speaking out in school hallways, college campuses and in the breakrooms at their jobs, and they are having an impact. They are unashamedly stepping out and teaching others to live for what really matters most---the exaltation of the Son of God to the ends of the earth!
