Two messages on the Church’s mission
There is a lot of talk today about being “missional,” and some of it has caused confusion or even derailed churches from following their actual mission.
Here are two recent messages on the subject:
- A message I preached last month at Bethany Bible Church in Hendersonville, NC – “The Mission Jesus Has Given Us”
- A presentation by Dave Doran at a recent GARB conference, which gets into a little of the history behind the issue.
