The Book

The Power of Everyday Missionaries: The What and How of Missionary Work summarizes over 40 years of lessons learned and principles gleaned by Clayton Christensen while performing missionary work for and among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Everyday Missionaries attempts to show how to find people who will accept invitations to be taught the restored gospel of Jesus Christ by full-time missionaries. The book also focuses on how to support those who are investigating the LDS Church to progress more resolutely toward baptism and a life of committed discipleship. The lessons are demonstrated through stories of actual people, including several modern miracles that show in action additional principles that can help members of the LDS Church all around the world move missionary work forward today.

As people share their experiences and stories of successful missionary principles, Everyday Missionaries will be updated and re-released with new stories and keener articulations of the principles that represent God’s thoughts and ways of sharing His truths and bringing His children to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ.
