Last week I wrote about three things I learned from Jerry Rankin. I wrote that post because Jerry Rankin has been a great influence for me personally, but I was motivated by a Lifetime Achievement Award he was awarded by Missio Nexus. Here’s a description of the award and the reason behind it:
The annual Lifetime of Service Award affirms the value of finishing well. In presenting this award, the staff and board of Missio Nexus celebrate the faithfulness of God as evidenced in a life of service to the cause of global mission. The award is presented annually at the Mission Leaders Conference in September.
Past awards have been given to Dr. Wesley Duewel, Dr. Ralph Winter, Dr. George Verwer, Dr. Robertson McQuilkin and Dr. Greg Livingstone.
Here is a great video that shows why Dr. Rankin is so deserving of such an honor, and of our respect.
