Aims
Introduces Christians to mission in the place where we live – the emrging global culture. After each gathering the group participants are assigned weekly missional tasks in a context they choose. This missional exploration can be sharing the gospel with a friend, studying a subculture/ethnic group/area for mission, building relationships at a local sporting club, volunteering at a soup kitchen, starting a missional community or anything in between. The missional exploration is about spending time listening to those who are yet to become followers of Jesus and beginning a process of sharing God’s love with them through actions and words.

    Using this course at Pacific Parks certainly helped us get a realistic picture of our engagement with the world outside the church. Some people really appreciated the discipline of reading the Bible (silently) in public places.

    We developed our own PowerPoint material and supplemented the session with material from The Visual Bible: Acts and Enhance.
