Title: A NEW ERA OF GLOBAL MISSION: CITIES, THE LEAST REACHED, AND MARKETPLACE WORK
Author: Zeller, Scott
Advisor: Allison, Gregg R.
Abstract: This thesis argues for the mobilization of marketplace professionals into global missions, particularly in the cities of the world where the least reached peoples are gathering.

Chapter 1 sets the stage by describing the potential for marketplace professionals to engage in global missions.

Chapter 2 argues for a theological basis - that the cultural mandate and the Great Commission both display the pattern of God’s glory being pursued through his mission being accomplished through the vocations of his people.

Chapter 3 and 4 sketches a history from the early church through the modern era. I introduce the idea that we are currently in transition to a new era of missions where the context for reaching the least reached will be urban and the leaders will be marketplace professionals.

Chapter 5 and 6 draw implications from this proposal, identifying benefits to marketplace professionals engaging in global missions and charting a path forward for interested parties.
