Miles Jarvis, from Commission, was the principal speaker as church leaders from across the church spectrum (including others from Commission) met at Moorlands College to think through short-term mission. Miles’ depth of experience in short term mission and Christ-centeredness both challenged and encouraged everyone present. Two of Miles’ key challenges were to ensure all short term work is done in the context of long term partners (local churches or long term workers) and secondly to not forget the vital place of good preparation and debriefing.
