This video is a wonderful picture of two things: Gospel-centered communities living on mission together and church as family. May God multiply these kinds of communities exponentially, for his Glory, and may it happen in my lifetime. Live sent!
Here’s a video (18 minutes, but worth it!) of Tom Johnston and Mike Chong Perkinson of The Praxis Center for Church Development explaining the simple principle that is helping churches, denominations, and the region of New England see a movement of multiplying disciples. The principle is called the Irreducible Core and is comprised of three things: loving God, loving people, and making disciples.
Later this month I’ll have the opportunity to travel with the EFCA Missional Architects to New England to be with Tom as he leads us through a Praxis Pilot. Our prayer is that the DNA of the Irreducible Core might permeate and infect the entire EFCA and that we might truly see a movement of reproducing disciples in our lifetime. Live sent!
Here’s an even better video that describes the shift to missional. If you are in a position of helping your church transition to missional this is a great little resource to push the envelope and stimulate discussion.
Great little video depicting the kind of mental shift needed to live missionally. May God multiply this kind of church, the kind that sends out its members to reach people where they are at.
This two-minute summary of the missional church is excellent. May God multiply this kind of church a thousandfold.
The Church As Family. A video from last summer featuring two friends and moi. The younger good looking one is me. (Just want to see if you’re reading this!)
