William Carey Library, 2000 - Religion - 287 pages
With 25 years of experience working on multicultural mission teams, Roembke helps the reader to identify and clarify credibility factors as well as problem areas of multicultural teams. She also offers concrete points of action for mission executives, team leaders and missionaries - whether they are seeking training for new missionaries or seeking to make changes to existing teams. Ultimately the aim of this book is to deal with concerns of multicultural mission teams so they can live together in such a way as to attract others to the person of Christ.
