Mission beyond Evanglism

The Great Commission, along with all the practice of the New Testament church, tells us that there is mission beyond evangelism. Paul clearly believed this. Had he stopped being a “missionary” when he spent three years teaching the  church in Ephesus the whole counsel of God? He affirmed the mission of Apollos (a cross-cultural missionary if there the was: converted in Africa, instructed in Asia and sent to Europe), which was a teaching mission (Acts 18:24-27), and Paul refused to allow that either was more important than the other – the one who planted or the one who watered (1 Cor. 3:5-9).
