Davis Missionary Journey: Continuing Education

One of the great church leaders and missions elders that I have known was a man who inspired continual study. Oddly enough, he only had a rudimentary education, but that didn't stop him from availing himself of the advantages of study.

In a polarized world, many scoff at seeking better understandings; others hold formal education up as a false idol. Miles Henry just wanted to serve Christ better and took the Word at its word…

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

When study is true to its purpose, God can use it for great things. Our team endeavors to keep this spirit by spending the first portion of each of our team meetings in study - sometimes theological and sometimes missiological - but always for the same purpose: to serve Christ better.


I wonder if grandpa would have enjoyed working on this team?
