How do you find the balance between the proclamation and the demonstration of the gospel as we see in Colossians 3:17? This is the question Integral Mission (aka “holistic development”, aka “transformational development”) tries to answer and Ravi is an expert on the subject. This week on The Ministry Growth Show we talk with Dr. Ravi Jayakaran, the President and CEO of Medical Ambassadors International as he shares his expertise on the topic of Integral Mission and the balance between word and deed. In this episode, Ravi shares how Medical Ambassadors is using a strategy tool called CHE (Community Health Evangelism) to transform and heal communities in 40 countries all over the world. Ravi’s resume is one of the most impressive I’ve ever seen in the ministry space, so we’re excited to share his expertise with you today. Enjoy!
