Jesus taught his disciples how they could make disciples in the way he did, and that he would provide help for this seemingly impossible task. In the book of Acts, we’re told that the Holy Spirit empowered the early disciples and propelled the church forward. In this final message of the Missio Dei series, Pastor David seeks to encourage and inspire us to believe in Christ’s power to do the impossible through the church.

One of the great challenges the church has faced throughout the ages is how to live among and engage with the broken world around us. What does it mean to be in the world but not of the world? How are we to be disciples of a holy God in a sometimes unholy world? In Missional Living(5 of 6) Pastor David shares some insights into how we should engage a post-Christian culture with the gospel of Jesus.

While an unbridled, top-down leadership hasn’t helped the church in the West, the early Christians recognized God’s gift to the church in the form of missional servant-leaders. This leadership doesn’t long for the spotlight, but it also doesn’t shirk the calling and responsibility to be out front as an incarnational example of Christ for the church to follow. In Missional Leaders (4 of 6), Pastor David calls forth those whom God has called among us to lead and guide the church into the future.

God is a missionary who sends a missionary church. It is not that the church has a mission; it is that God’s mission has a church. If we’re going to be missional like Jesus, what needs to change? What needs to happen for us to make room at the table for more disciples? In Missional Church (3 of 6), Pastor David challenges us to consider how we must be fully engaged in the spaces of the church if we want to reach people for Christ out in the world.

Jesus is the Son sent by the Father. The divine Logos (Word) became flesh and moved into the neighborhood. In Christ we see the missional God seeking out those who are broken and lost, those who recognize their need to be healed and reconciled to God. In Missional Jesus (2 of 6), Pastor David invites us to recommit ourselves to Jesus and his risky way of crossing borders and boundaries.

God is a missionary God. From the very beginning of creation to the birth of the early church, the Triune God has revealed his intentions to include all people into his divine community. In the first message of this series, Pastor David calls us to look deeply into the missionary heart of God, the God who seeks us out and sends us out to manifest his presence and reflect his glory into the world.
