Who is a missionary? What is the definition of a missionary? What is their role in the New Testament? We all love the song Be a Missionary Every Day because it teaches young and old alike that every Christian needs to be soul-conscious every day. Yet, it is important to also understand that a New Testament missionary is more than a soul-winner. The Apostle Paul and others were God-called and specifically sent from the local church to do a particular task. This downloadable chart below compares various views of what a missionary is and what he must do. It contrasts what BWM would present as a balanced definition with other views which are either too broad or narrow.
