What does it mean to be a Great Commission Worshiper?

In The Great Commission to Worship, two men from distinct missionary and worship backgrounds sort through their differences related to the Great Commission vs. Great Commandment debate. Together, they develop a strategy for evangelism that does not exclude our responsibility to engage in worship. Likewise, they unpack an approach to worship that does not ignore or marginalize the biblical mandate to evangelism.

All told, they define the Great Commission Worshiper—a person totally and equally committed to evangelism and worship—and a spiritual process that is formational, transformational, relational, missional, and reproducible.

Actively involving the reader, each chapter includes five “life questions” for personal reflection. The book concludes with steps for practical application and ten principles for developing “lifestyle worship evangelism.”

“Thankfully, we hear much talk of the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. With passion for God’s glory and faithfulness to his Word, Vernon Whaley and David Wheeler tackle head-on how they relate. Drawing on years of ministry experience, they rightly demonstrate that the divine commands to evangelize and worship are both essential and mutually reinforcing. Both are necessary to promote genuine Christian discipleship. In these pages you will find both engaging argument and practical strategy to develop devoted followers of Christ—“Great Commission Worshippers.” I highly commend it.”
