Mission Lab: Stepping Stones to Faith
“I realized that our church had no mission strategy.”“O Lord! Before this day, why did we not use mission to build relationships with people?” “I learned how to begin interactions with people.” “Thank you! I personally have been given new ideas to become a better local mission chair! I love building relationships with folks!!” “It was helpful to develop an action plan for local mission!” “The stepping stones are so simple, but helpful! I do not know why we did not think of these before.” “I enjoy that Matt presented some real and practical ideas for making local mission powerful to the church and our larger community.” “I appreciate the clear organization and presentation! Founded in scripture and full of examples is so helpful! Thank you!!!” “While I realized that we have not be doing everything well. But I appreciate that we started by celebrating what we do, and made plans to make our local mission more powerful.” “It is exciting to me that mission is not just feeding people but growing faith–mine and others.” “It is a relief to begin to know that mission can take place anywhere and at anytime. It isn’t just at an event. Mission is a way of life! This is discipleship.” Request this training!Introductory Video

Jesus goes to people and so did the early church.Instead of asking where all of the people have gone, our churches will be more faithful to ask: where is Jesus going? Living in community with those who are outside of our bounds is the setting of God’s good news and the context of discipleship.
