a mobilizer is like a “recruiter” or a “representative” mixed with a “mentor” – a missionary who comes alongside of a person interested in ministry. my goal will be to help people go from where they are to the next step in what God has for them.
look at it this way – pretend the task at hand is that we need to dig a hole. the missionaries are the ones going into the hole and doing the digging. But they don’t go alone; they have ropes tied around them for support. those who hold those ropes for them are their supporting churches and individuals who give and pray so that they can go. so what is a mobilizer? we’re the ones running around outside of the hole telling others that we need more people to go and dig, that we need more people to hold ropes! i get to tell the stories of those who are digging in the holes and i get to find those who God is already calling to jump in.
