Meet TSP's New Director of Advancement--Doc Butler
The Sending Project welcomes Doc Butler as our new Director of Advancement. Doc has served as an administrator in the Kansas City, Missouri, school district for many years, and has recently transitioned to pursue a full-time role with mission mobilization.
While Doc believes that someday God will very likely lead him to actually go long-term and serve cross-culturally in foreign mission someday, he says "...in this season He has charged me to mobilize others to go, including those who do not have a tradition for going over salt water.”
Doc continues, "Passionately, I am called to stir up our gifts for this Great Commission by mobilizing, recruiting, calling and encouraging people of various ethnicities toward cross-cultural mission. This is not an either/or situation of home missions versus foreign missions—but an affirmation for both. The vehicle that can best help me pursue this vision is...The Sending Project."
TSP is very glad to welcome Doc (who has already been serving as a TSP Advocate) into his expanded role now--which includes helping develop and lead the overall ministry. His responsibilities also include continuing to build a citywide network and alliance of churches for the purpose of mission, and nurturing TSP involvement from churches of various ethnic, geographical, and denominational identity.
Pray for Doc as he launches this next season in his life by furthering the TSP mission and vision; as a part of his role he will be raising and maintaining adequate financial support.

TSP Executive Director, Eric Rochester, notes: "God has blessed Doc with some amazing spiritual gifts, and allowed him to have a wealth of experience in community service and global mission. The timing of the intersection with Doc and The Sending Project is synergistic. It makes me wonder what God is up to in the weeks, months and years ahead as we continue to focus on a citywide unity for the purpose of mission."
