About When the Members are the Missionaries before publication:

Daniel T. Benedict, Jr., a national staff officer:

“A bold and seismic book you wish had never been written because it turns your way of seeing upside down…a book you will be glad was written because, otherwise, you would have spent your life going in the wrong direction.”

Mary Ann Brody, a junior high teacher:

“Wayne’s words call us to the mission begun by Jesus Christ to heal the world and to nourish each other along the way…a valuable resource for clergy and lay people.”

Mary Martin, pastor of an urban congregation:

“A clear map for clergy to take the Sunday experience into the rest of the week. No one is forgotten!”

Sheryl Kujawa, seminary director of congregational studies:

“Challenges our previous (mis)conceptions and offers a way to the future…a change strategy to open up mission and ministry truly rooted in a priesthood of all believers.”

Robert Hofstad, bishop:

“Schwab has an evangelizing heart…the book reflects this experience and passion.”
