God sovereignly calls all believers to fulfill the great commission, regardless of their ethnicity. African Americans are a part of a unique story in foreign missions that is seldom told. Tim steps into the African American story and examines their involvement in the history of missions, the complexities of today, and the unlimited potential of tomorrow.
