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 wi…th 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.
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 Christ 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'.
Missionaries feel a calling to help poor and disadvantaged people in their battles of restoring dignity, maintaining health, escaping poverty and above all, learning of the Go…od News of Christ.
There are many all over the world it can be answered but not if you travel the world you will not find many but that can't be answered
help our people
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 differe…nt areas converting people to one thing ex. religion) A missionary is a religious man or woman who aims to preach and pray for 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.
Missionaries do what they do because after hearing prophecies or reading a verse..... you start getting an exciting feeling and then you might talk to your pastor about it… or even a friend. After getting tons of answers, you pray, pray, pray about it and before you know it.... God has answered your prayer and your on the mission field! 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. Another reason why a missionary does what they do is because of the compassion that individual has for others. They have a desire to see other people relieved of their spiritual suffering by showing them how they can be right with God and have eternal life, as well as physical suffering, which is why missionary work is often accompanied by humanitarian work, such as caring for the sick (a medical missionary), teaching, running orphanages, etc. Answer2: Jesus was the greatest teacher of all time and the greatest missionary. Those who love him and are his footstep followers will do what he did and publicly publish the word of God to others. This may involve going to foreign lands, learning a new language and embracing other cultures to do so.
the people who help form the missionaries. got the so called "half caste" aborigines and rounded them up. and they got only the half castes because they wanted to get rid of t…he aborigines out of Australia. so they thought they will breed them out. so they would have a half caste have a kid to a white man then that kid will be whiter and it goes on... and sometimes they'll do that to full bloods as well.
a missionarie is someone who is sended to do a deed in other words, sended to do a job of some sort.
lots of stuff
yes there are, still all over the world preahing, serving, helping, loving caring and decipling. etc
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...
Sort of, they do not necessarily have missionaries at their churches, but one of their big beliefs is that it is important for them to support missionaries. Most missionary Ba…ptist churches pick several missionaries to support or provide partial support for in different parts of the world. These missionaries communicate with the church leadership through letters, e-mail, and occasional visits when they are able.
