Tradecraft: For the Church on Mission
By Larry McCrary, Caleb Crider, Wade Stephens, and Rodney Calfee

For too long, the church has separated out ‘missionary training’ from the rest of discipleship,” says the authors of Tradecraft.

“We’ve acted like only those of us traveling abroad need to learn basic missionary skills. But as Christians, we are all outsiders. Our role on the earth is to incarnate the gospel about the people around us. We’re all missionaries; it’s just that most of us haven’t been properly trained yet.

“Tradecraft: For the Church on Mission is your manual for learning missionary skills. We took the same basic training most international missionaries receive and selected nine skills to apply to all Christians everywhere.”

The nine skills covered are following the Holy Spirit, mapping, exegeting culture, building relationships, [fostering relationships with] persons of peace, engaging tribes, contextualization, [exploring] alternative paths [e.g., roles and platforms], and protecting indigeneity. Use them to train future missionaries as well as disciple believers in your local context.

One endorsement describes in this way: “In this book the authors lovingly articulate the key missionary tactics and approaches that can unlock neighborhoods and cities for the Gospel. They have a long experience in these matters and are very well-read. Highly recommended as a handbook to missions anywhere.” (Alan Hirsch)
