The Church, the Gospel, and Our Call to the Nations

Speakers: Mack Stiles Year: 2012 Session: Breakout Session

The response of the church in this fallen world is missional not militaristic. When sharing with others, the message from God that leads to salvation should be primary, pure and bold. The biblical, healthy church is to be a necessary component in sending out missionaries. And the individual call to the nations should be an informed and confirmed decision.


Mack and his wife, Leeann, have traveled and lived in many places before landing in Erbil, Iraq, in July 2017, including 15 years in Dubai, UAE. He’s the pastor of Erbil International Baptist Church. Over the years he’s been involved in university student ministry, church reform and church planting. Mack has authored five Christian books. The most current book is Evangelism: How The Whole Church Speaks of Jesus. Mack enjoys photography, snow skiing, and thinking through how to proclaim the Gospel of grace to those who haven’t yet heard whether next door or halfway around the world.
