"You were created for one purpose: live your life for God’s glory. You need no further special call. You have been created uniquely to do this uniquely, so work out what you’re passionate about, good at, and fit for, and go do it." — Andrew Scott
In Scatter, missions innovator Andrew Scott sounds a call for a new era of missions, one that uses the global marketplace for gospel growth and sees every Christian—engineer, baker, pastor, or other—as God’s global image bearer.
Andrew has served in over 52 countries and is the U.S. president of one of the world’s largest mission agencies. With eyes on a quickly-growing world and a slower-growing church, he sees that our traditional mission models simply won’t do. Here he gives a guide to change it up.
Helping us see the grand narrative of Scripture and how each of us fits within it, he issues a compelling call: scatter.

Work as Worship to Work as Ministry
Andrew Scott lays out an impassioned plea for all followers of Jesus to see their work as worship and a big part of how they are called to glorify God with good works. He then goes a step further to challenge Christians to consider taking their job and career to unreached people groups for the sake of the Gospel or at least view their work as their ministry/service. Never before in history have we had such ease of travel, technology to connect us, and an openness to taking a job in another country. The impact would be astounding if only a small percentage of Christians decided to get a job where there aren’t many Christians and then moved there to live, love, and work with excellence. I hope and pray every Christian will at least consider doing this. There are so many dark places where the light of Jesus has yet to shine brightly and those people need hope and love. Don’t send money to some other person to love them for you. Go do it yourself. :)
