Do you dream of the future? Do you picture a reality that’s different than what you experience today? I’ve been dreaming lately of a different future for the Church. A future that I believe is based on the mission of Jesus.

The focus of our energy at Missional Challenge is to advance missional movements globally.

Believe it or not, there’s a lot of similarities between making disciples and taking a hot yoga class!

Have you stopped to take current measurements as you start the new year? This is an incredibly important and valuable thing to do.

In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gives His disciples His prime directive:

This isn’t a surprise. In many churches, baptizing is reserved for the clergy. However, nowhere in the New Testament do we see instructions or restrictions that limit who can baptize.

My friend and colleague, Bob Rasmussen, posted a link to this Man of Peace video on the One Challenge USA webpage on Facebook.

My friend Chris Fukunaga is the pastor of A Village Community in Long Beach, California.

Because Christ sent the church to make disciples. And without disciplemaking, the church ceases to exist. This is Christ’s redemptive strategy. Missional starts with and continues through disciplemaking.
