When we talk about missions, people often envision being sent out to an undeveloped land to share the gospel to people who've never even heard of Jesus. But surprisingly, there's a real call for mission work in big metropolitan European cities as well. Greater Europe Mission is answering that call. GEM's President Jon Burns talks with Ed Stetzer about his outreach to Europe and how we can help too.
