About the Author

Dr. Tom Steffen served twenty years with New Tribes Mission, fifteen in the Philippines. He is emeritus professor of Intercultural Studies in the Cook School of Intercultural Studies at Biola University, La Mirada, CA.


The Facilitator Era marks a quantum leap forward in strategic thinking and practice of mission. With an eye to planting and multiplying churches among every people, Steffen combines a readable narrative with case studies from around the globe. He examines the promise and pitfalls of current developments pointing the way forward with uncommon wisdom. If you don't want to be left behind as the church moves into the next era of global mission, read The Facilitator Era.
--Craig Ott
Associate Professor of Mission and Intercultural Studies
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Once again Dr. Tom Steffen has provided a 'leading edge' study of missions strategies and practices. I remember my conversation with Tom a few years ago about this very subject. How has the role of the missionary changed from one who 'passes the baton' to one whom never really picks it up? The Facilitator Era answers the question. Steffen's teaching fable connects powerfully with today's learner. I like his chalkboard illustrations. Students will love this book. Missions thinkers and practitioners will celebrate the scope and depth of Steffen's sources. The global tour of recent, relevant case studies is unprecedented. This is truly a groundbreaking work in missions theory and praxis. The students in my 'Facilitating Church Planting Movements' class will be the beneficiaries! So, after reading The Facilitator Era, why would I still teach pioneer church planting movements? Read the book!

Columbia International University This is a must-read for North Americans who frequently enter other parts of the world with the best intentions but may be blind of their own cultural assumptions.
-- Birgit Herppich, as reviewed in Missiology
