Great Commission Obedience is a resource for pastors that will inspire them to preach boldly on missions and spark an evangelistic resurgence. It features messages compiled by veteran missionary and retired International Mission Board president Jerry Rankin-each one packed with personal illustrations and practical examples of how God is at work around the world today. As the Southern Baptist denomination rallies toward a Great Commission Resurgence, these messages help clear that path and unite volunteer mission teams being sent out by the church.
Jerry Rankin and his wife, Bobbye, spent twenty-three years as missionaries in Asia until he became International Mission Board president in 1993. Until his retirement in 2010, Rankin led the board with a vision of missionaries, churches, and volunteers partnering to take the gospel to all peoples. A noted author, his books include Spiritual Warfare, Spiritual Warfare and Missions, and In the Secret Place. The Rankins now live in Clinton, Mississippi.
