I wrote Six-Word Lessons to Discover Missional Living as a practical guide for believers to align their lives with Jesus’ mission.
It has 100 simple lessons – only six-words each – which capture the essence of missional living. 6 Key Lessons:
#5: Discipleship starts with non-disciples, not Christians.
#21: Our God is a missionary God!
#27: Mission starts in my zip code.
#33: Missional activities start where you are.
#41: Loving your neighbors requires knowing them.
#72: Incarnate the gospel wherever you are.

In a time when the religious and cultural landscape is rapidly changing, Dave DeVries provides clarity for leaders who know they must return to the heart of the Great Commission but are unsure what that means for their ministries. Dave shows us how to follow Jesus beyond the Sunday morning church event and into our communities. For those who believe that the most exciting days of ministry are ahead but aren’t sure what to do, Dave’s book is a compass to lead us out of the woods.

This little book is filled with what I like to call ‘golden nuggets of wisdom and insight.’ These lessons are both ‘biblically based’ and have been ‘lived out in the crucible of a real life church plant!’ I highly recommend that you take 30 minutes of your time to read this short, but truly powerful book. I wish I had had a book like this, filled with Dave’s insights when I planted my church years ago. It would have saved me a lot of unnecessary headaches and given me a great deal of godly encouragement that I needed to keep plowing ahead even during the toughest of days. You will find yourself coming back to this little book again and again!

Dave DeVries has been involved in the harvest since before I first met him while he was in college, over twenty-five years ago, leading other students to share Jesus with those who were without the Savior. Dave is a practitioner, student, teacher, reader and coach for those on the sacred quest to further the kingdom of God in their generation. This book will provide…an inspiring and practical resource.
