Shane has served in missions mobilization since 1987, much of his energy going to recruiting, training, and sending short-term teams. He’s been on research teams in Bangkok, Bombay and Turkey. He coauthored Exploring the Land, a guide to researching unreached peoples, and has written numerous articles.
“I’m an ordinary guy. I began school planning to be a pastor, but through a number of people and events, God focused my calling on missions, specifically catalyzing efforts for the world’s most under-evangelized peoples. After 20 years of barely venturing beyond the borders of Indiana, God began bouncing me around the world. In each place my objective has been, with a team of people, to discover how the church might be established where it hasn’t yet.”
“I now work as a speaker and writer for Frontiers, a sharp organization focused on extending God’s blessing in the Muslim world. I live to help people who love Jesus connect with people who’ve never heard of him.”
“I think the key message that God has given me to say is that missions is important because of who God is. It’s all about him. Missions certainly, but also the rest of life. His glory is paramount.”
