You may download the full lesson quarterly for studying God’s Mission, My Mission in Kindle format from Amazon. Amazon lists the author as Gary Krause, who serves as Director of Adventist Mission, which oversees the Global Mission Study Centers, church planting, and mission promotion. Krause holds a Bachelor’s in Education from Avondale College and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Newcastle in Australia. If you’ve been paying any attention to reports on Adventist missions, his face and voice will be a familiar one. However, this particular study guide is the result of the collaboration of the directors of Global Mission Centers, namely Petras Bahadur Richard Elofer, Kleber Concalves, Clifmond Shameerudeen, Doug Venn, Amy Whitsett, Greg Whitseet, assisted by Gary Krause, Homer Trecartin and Jeff Scoggins.
