Missions Wisdom Shared: 50 Years of Invaluable Content in One Resource
For nearly half a century, Evangelical Missions Quarterly (EMQ) has served the missionary community worldwide by providing relevant, engaging, thoughtful articles on a vast array of ministry foci—leadership, translation, contextualization, business as mission, member care, length of service, biblical applications, etc. EMQ continues to remain one of the top journals for missiologists, and is for many thought-practitioners, the premier journal for the North American mission community.
Each quarterly issue contains 10-12 articles that you won’t find elsewhere by mission and church leaders and experienced cross-cultural workers around the world. EMQ is published by the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and is available both in print and online.
