Ask almost any younger mission leader today, regardless of his or her country of origin, “Who is looking out for you and your well-being?” The answer is painfully predictable: “No one.” Younger mission leaders are hungry. They are hungry for in-depth relationships with older leaders who are authentic and vulnerable, and who will serve as experienced guides and shepherds.Todd Poulter
About the Author
Todd grew up in Silicon Valley when it was still filled with fruit orchards. He and his wife Karla have been with SIL, and more recently with the Wycliffe Global Alliance, for 30-plus years – in Ghana, Kenya, the U.S., and now in Penang, Malaysia. Their two adult sons, an artist and a lawyer, both work in San Francisco. Todd serves on Wycliffe’s Global Leadership Team as a consultant for leadership development. He also is a member of International Partnership Associates, whose goal is to multiply effective partnering and ministry to least-reached peoples. He and his wife Karla love to befriend younger mission leaders and their families. In Penang, they enjoy exploring the historic neighborhoods on foot, and finding interesting (and cheap) places to eat.
