Collaboration: Missions Resource Network

& Missions Consulting International

 

Bob Waldron, who served Missions Resource Network from 1998 until his retirement in January 2013, is still not ready to hang up his spurs.

 

He stated, “My time at Missions Resource Network, was the most productive and rewarding years of my ministry, but I needed to pass the baton to the next generation and slow down a bit.  I have found, however, that like Caleb of old, I am itching for another mountain, or more likely for a small hill.”  That is why Bob has launched Missions Consulting International to serve the missions community by collaborating with Missions Resource Network and other missions entities to provide:

 

  • Assessments of stateside church missions programs
  • Consultations with  stateside congregational missions leaders  
  • Seminars on practical missions committee issues for equipping those leaders  
  • Resources that are outcomes of careful research requested by the missions community and especially by Missions Resource Network.

 

Bob continued, “I am a firm believer in MRN and believe its best days are still ahead.  I support what they are doing and am grateful for the way churches have turned to them to become better equipped for the missions task.”  That buy-in from local churches, however, has created a strain on the human resources at MRN and Bob and Dr. Dan Bouchelle, president of MRN, agree that Bob may be able to help lighten some of MRN’s workload.   

Bob’s initial research projects will be (1) maintaining MRN’s International Missionary Database (2) publishing an annual statistical report of current missionaries in churches of Christ, (3) compiling a country-by-country missions history of churches of Christ, and (4) recommending an equitable missionary compensation package based on what the leading evangelical missions agencies provide to their missionaries.

 

Dan stated, “No one I know brings more knowledge on global missions and how the local church can engage in best practices to support global missions than Dr. Bob Waldron. That is why I’m thrilled that he is willing to continue to serve in a variety of ways as a partner with us beyond the time of his formal employment in our ministry. We look forward to many years of collaboration for the strengthening of God’s kingdom around the world and see Bob’s new ministry project as a blessing to the kingdom at large.”
