What does Propempo Mean?
The word “Propempo” in the original New Testament Greek (προπέμπω) literally means “to send forward”. By the end of the first century it had taken on a more specific sense referring to Christian workers sent out from local churches for the advancement of the Gospel: “to send forward fully equipped”. As such, Propempo encompasses the nurture, resourcing, and sending out of servants to advance the Gospel.
