The Call

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Do you know that you’ve been called by God to missions? Now, you might be thinking, “John, I support missionaries, but I couldn’t be one!” EE’s founder, Dr. D. James Kennedy, wanted desperately to be a missionary to Africa. He tried so hard to be placed there; but at the last minute, he was told that due to health reasons he couldn’t go. He realized he couldn’t be a missionary overseas. God instead led him to pastor a tiny little church plant in Florida where God gave him an outline and program to help disciple His congregation to share their faith. And in 1996, that discipleship program had traveled to every single nation on the earth, and the Gospel was changing lives. God fulfilled the call that he placed on Dr. Kennedy’s heart in a way he never expected. And you know, God will use you the same way. He has placed you in your community, at your job, in your family to share the message of His love with. For resources on how you can do that, visit
