To faithfully live as a follower of Jesus and make disciples asJesus commanded his disciples to do before he ascended into heaven. Spreading the gospel of Jesus to everyone with a thankful heart. The question is how to define "missionary." The examples aboveclearly take the most literal definition…, that of one who visits aforeign place and spends all his or her time proactively andtransitively coaxing people into being baptized. But there are somany other types of missionaries, so I find it best to see thephrase "missionary" as "consecrated volunteer clergy." Was MotherTheresa a missionary? Of course, but she was not the evangelicaltype rather she was, but she just thought taking care of peoplephysically was a precursor to discussing abstract concepts withthem on any profound level. Did the Hawaiian or Africanmissionaries spend all their time preaching, or were theysuccessful precisely because their model involved living among thepeople for decades, building groundwork as they raised money tobuild their churches? In other words, it varies extremely. In Texas, I spent a goodportion of each day visiting members, building rapport with them sothey would feel comfortable referring their friends who were havingproblems to me. We spent some of most days knocking on doors; andsome of each day visiting inactive members of the church. Oneafternoon a week generally we'd spend volunteering at a hospital orreading books to kids at the library. My parents, on the other hand, went to Albania. There my father wasassigned to church leadership roles in developing congregationswhile my mother orchestrated the building of orphanages, developeda national tooth care training program for kids, and plannedneonatal resuscitation training for the med schools. They are veryblue collar printers and have no background in any of the above! So a missionary is anyone who is actively building the kingdom ofGod, especially those who, on a regular and scheduled basis work tothat end, being notably or visibly set apart from the populationand therefore holding themselves forth by that population as such.I Answer2: Jesus was the greatest teacher and missionary. Ones whofollow in his footsteps publicly speaks and publishes the word ofGod. (MORE)
Answer: Each board has different requirements but most will ask for a bachelor's degree and a degree from a seminary. Try talking to a counselor at a seminary or contacting the board you want to work with such as International Mission Board (in association with Southern Baptist Committee). Y…ou will want to have a bachelor's degree in the field you wish to work, ideally but typically not required (if you want to teach abroad, try a teaching degree). Right now you want to search your heart and make sure this is the life God wants for you, this is a huge commitment and might require you to learn new languages, sleep on the ground or on cement, not eat your regular food, etc. If it is then great! Eventually you will be asked to share your testimony and why you want to be a missionary and when you discovered this path for your life. . Answer: . You've got a lot of thinking to do:. First consider if you want to. A missionary is a person who is so convinced that they are right that they are willing to tell others that they and their cultural traditions are wrong. Consider how you would react if a number of followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster came to your town to convert you and your family - offering medicines and food to those who saw the light and a cold shoulder for those who didn't, who gave all the kids in town shiny new iPods for coming to "fun" meetings on the weekend. . Next chose which group you wan to work with. There are a lot of "not nice" charities out there who want to prey on volunteers and separate donors from their cash. You don't want to join up with them. Are they aboveboard or do they force conversion by with holding benefits to those who won't convert, Are they a sham group who have dumped volunteers in the wild when the funds ran low. Are they insured and do they offer health benefits. What is their policy on getting hostages back. What happens if you come back sick and crippled? . Then, what's in it for you? Do they pay and feed you or do they make you pay to work for them. What useful training do you get - first aid, trades skills (e.g. welding), foreign language training. Do you get yearly repatriation?. Ask what message you want to spread. Maybe you're more interested in doing non-sectarian good work like "Doctors Without Borders". (MORE)
This question may refer to the Missionaries of the Mormon Church; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mormon Missionaries are unpaid volunteers who actively seek individuals interested in learning more about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. As Christians, they believe that Jesus Chr…ist is our Savior, and that God is our Heavenly Father. They believe this with such strong conviction (aka: Testimonies), that they volunteer to concecrate 1.5 to 2.0 years of their lives to serving a mission. Mormon Missionaries always travel in groups of 2 or more; two male missionaries are called 'Elders', even though they're 19 or 20 years old. Two lady missionaries are called 'Sisters'. (MORE)

Unlike Christianity and Islam which actively support missionary efforts, Hinduism is mostly practiced in India and by adherents of Hinduism who migrate to other countries. There have been some notable Hindu's who might be called missionaries such as the Mahareshi Mahesh Yogi who has made overt atemp…ts to spread Hinduism worldwide. (MORE)
Probably mean, "What is a medical missionary?" This is a person with medical training (such as a medical doctor, surgeon, nurse, etc.) who uses the training in mission work. Some examples of such mission work could be (1) working in a missionary hospital or clinic, (2) helping with a preventive heal…th program, (3) going on short-term medical missions, or other similar things. Ultimately, it is a willingness to use one's passion and training to help others and serve God. (MORE)
Missionaries are people who go out (generally to another country) to convert people to their religion. ( normaly it is religion but it also can be explores coming from different areas converting people to one thing ex. religion) A missionary is a religious man or woman who aims to preach and pray fo…r the people and their country. They help in ways specific to the culture, finding areas that need extra attention and working with the locals to make self-sustaining changes. Missionaries usually come from a particular church or denomination. An individual might decide to become a missionary after they feel the burden of responding to their religion's call for missionaries (for example, a Christian's call from the Bible can be found in Mark 16:15 "And he (Jesus) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature"). They are then sent from and supported by their particular church or denomination to go into the world with the "mission" of sharing their faith and persuading others to join them in their faith. Often missionary work is accompanied by humanitarian work, such as caring for the sick (a medical missionary), teaching, running orphanages, righting for social injustice and protecting God's creations. A missionary is a person who fulfills the Great Commission which is go out unto the world and preach the gospel to every creature. A. There are many definitions. Here are a few to think about. 1. A Christian who works cross-culturally to draw people to Christ. (Obviously, this would have to be modified for missionaries from other religions such as Islam). 2. All Christians (since all Christians are supposed to spread their faith). 3. People who do Christian Ministry outside of the local church, that does not necessarily seek to draw people into that same church. (In other words, it is separating Missions, from Church Member Care work, and Church Growth Work). I prefer definition #3, but most prefer definition #1. Some would add that a missionary should be full-time, professional, and long-term. This is to separate from part-time, bivocational, or short-term workers. Some also assume that missionaries must be involved mostly with evangelism (taking those who are not Christians and bringing them to Christ). Others take a broader understanding of missions to include such things as discipleship, leader development, teaching, and social ministry.) A. A missionary is a person of a particular faith that works either within their own culture or that of another nation to spread the basic beliefs and tenets of their faith. (MORE)
The missionaries prime responsibility, and that which they all have in common it to spread the word of Christ. There is nothing paramount to that calling to which they have been assigned.
Missionaries do what they do because after hearing prophecies orreading a verse..... you start getting an exciting feeling and thenyou might talk to your pastor about it or even a friend. Aftergetting tons of answers, you pray, pray, pray about it and beforeyou know it.... God has answered your pray…er and your on themission field! An individual might decide to become a missionaryafter they feel the burden of responding to their religion's callfor missionaries (for example, a Christian's call from the Biblecan be found in Mark 16:15 "And he (Jesus) said unto them, Go yeinto all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature"). Theyare then sent from and supported by their particular church ordenomination to go into the world with the "mission" of sharingtheir faith and persuading others to join them in their faith.Another reason why a missionary does what they do is because of thecompassion that individual has for others. They have a desire tosee other people relieved of their spiritual suffering by showingthem how they can be right with God and have eternal life, as wellas physical suffering, which is why missionary work is oftenaccompanied by humanitarian work, such as caring for the sick (amedical missionary), teaching, running orphanages, etc. Answer2: Jesus was the greatest teacher of all time and thegreatest missionary. Those who love him and are his footstepfollowers will do what he did and publicly publish the word of Godto others. This may involve going to foreign lands, learning a newlanguage and embracing other cultures to do so. (MORE)

A missionary is a person sent on a mission. It is mainly used to refer to christians who go to others to teach them about the Bible. Missionaries go to other people in obedience to Christ's command in the gospel of Matthew. Mat 28:19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my discipl…es: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Mat 28:20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age." (MORE)
There are two types of schools (at least) that are often called "missionary schools". I am speaking within the context of Christian missions. 1. The most common use of the term is an elementary or high school started and run by missionaries. In some parts of the world (historically, and even to th…is day) there are places where education, (reading, writing, math, etc.), are not taught or taught so poorly that local children are at a disadvantage. Christian missionaries would set up schools for the children. Often they would teach, but may also utlize the services of local teachers. As misisonaries, they would typically incorporate the Holy Bible into the training, as well as Christian doctrine and ethics. 2. In some cases the term can be used as a short form for "missionary training school." In this case, it describes a school or training program designed to train people in the theory and practice of mission work. (MORE)

(This is written from the context of Christian Missionaries). Missionaries are still here. Between 100,000 and 200,000 men and women would describe themselves as Christian Missionaries today. If one broadens the definition to all those who physically leave the confines of the church to bring those o…utside to the faith, the number goes far higher. However, it is true that the classic stereotype of a missionary is fairly rare today. The stereotype tends to involve European/American men and women trekking through the jungles, finding a remote village, and sharing the faith under a mango tree with the natives. There are people who fit this stereotype. However, as the Gospel propagates and globalism and technology reduces the separation of people, the necessity of this form of mission work lessens. Where pioneering missions (the stereotype of missions) is needed is with unreached people groups. However, now, it is usually cultural and political barriers that provide the challenge rather than mountains, rivers, and forests. Today a majority of missionaries are from countries that used to be called "the Third World". They may work in cities, they may teach in schools, they may do medical work, publishing, or any number of a wide variety of ministries. (MORE)
Anyone can be a missionary- if you're asking about Christian missions, God calls all believers to be involved in reaching the world with the Gospel...
Unlike Chistrianity, Islam or Judaim, Hinduism is NOT an organised religion. Hinduism is not run by organisations with hierachies or affiliations. Neither was there a "founder prophet". Hinduism is more of a culturally ingrained system of religious beliefs and activities similar to the Ancient Egypt…ians, Greeks and Romans. That is why there are no missionaries as there is no motivation to increase organizational membership. There are certain organised sub-groups who have missionaries but these constitute a very small percentage. HINDUISM AND MISSIONARIES: Any religion that is based on a code of conduct, and in which all are equal, needs new converts who have to tolerate them. Thus, eternal propagation is a must. In contrast, in Hinduism there are four Varnas. The Brahmanas are the most rigid and the Shudras are the most flexible. In Hinduism the Shudras are the equivalent of the new converts of other religions. Thus, Hinduism is a self-sustaining religion and needs no propagation. Therefore, Hinduism doesn't need Missionaries. (MORE)

Christianity became the danish state religion when the missionary Poppo came to the king Harald BlÃ¥tand (Harald Bluetooth) and convinced him of the religion.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has about 65,000 missionaries serving worldwide. The Church allows single young men and women ages 18-25 and retired (married or single) men and women to serve missions. About 55,000 Mormon missionaries are 'proselyting' missionaries, meaning thei…r responsibilities focus on finding and teaching potential converts. They serve as a sort of travelling preacher. Proselyting missionaries serve for 18 months to two years, and spend only a few months in one area before moving to a new place. Most proselyting missionaries are young college-age men and women. About 10,000 Mormon missionaries are 'humanitarian' missionaries, meaning their responsibilities focus on providing temporal care to the needy. They distribute food and clothing, provide medical care, build schools and wells, and care for orphans. They rarely, if ever, do any preaching and spend the entire length of their mission (6 months to 3 years) in the same location. Most humanitarian missionaries are older retired adults.

There are a number of ways. 1. One can apply to a mission board that supports you from their own resources. Generally, there is a long process to go through to get such a position because one, in many ways, becomes an employee of that mission agency. 2. One may self-fund or be bivocational (wo…rking in the mission country) to fund. This is very workable for some, and completely inappropriate for others. 3. Commonly, missions is done in a manner often called "faith-based". While the term is completely a misnomer (nothing more "faith-like" in this method than any others). This involves building a support base with friends, families, and churches. Commonly, one would work with a faith-based mission agency to help with the logistical challenges and mobilization of ministry. They may help you connect with donors. However, commonly one must contact people, and churches. One must demonstrate one's vision, competence, and trustworthiness to convince them that you are called to missions, and deserving of being in partnership with them in missions. Generally, one should start with those closest to you. They are more likely to know your passion, and recognize your competence and trustworthiness. (MORE)
