Too many Christians still think that worship is only a Sunday-morning activity done inside the church, while mission involves how the church engages the outside world. But Ruth Meyers argues that a dynamic relationship exists between worship and mission -- that gathering as God s people includes at its heart our being sent out into the world in God s name. Meyers explores this relationship by taking readers through the various parts of the worship service: gathering, proclaiming the Word, praying for the world, celebrating the Eucharist, and going forth to continue participating in God s mission in the world. In each chapter Meyers includes stories of worship practices in different churches and considers how the actions of worship relate integrally to mission. Missional Worship, Worshipful Mission emphasizes that missional worship is not a set of techniques but rather an approach to worship and congregational life in which God s mission permeates every aspect of what the church does.

Mission is constantly innovating. As contexts change, so too does the work of the church. Today, in the face of a rapidly changing world and a growing global church, the task of mission must continue to innovate in unexpected ways. The State of Missiology Today explores the developments and transformations in the study and practice of mission. Looking both backwards—especially over the first half-century of Fuller Theological Seminary's School of Intercultural Studies—and forwards, the contributors to this volume chart the current shape of mission studies and its prospects in the twenty-first century. This Missiological Engagements volume features contributions by J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu John Azumah Pascal Bazzell Stephen Bevans Jayakumar Christian Pablo A. Deiros Sarita D.

As congregations explore their emerging visions, they need support in "equipping the saints" for their day-to-day lives and ministries beyond the doors of the building. The Dismissal -- "go in peace, to love and serve the Lord" -- becomes as important as the Eucharist in feeding the people for the journey. But churches often fail to focus on this baptismal calling to "go" into the worlds of work, family, and community. This book fills that void, focusing on how the baptized become "go-ers," providing practical and tested ways of fulfilling that calling. Go to Love and Serve builds on and complements the work of Stephanie Spellers' Radical Welcome, which called congregations to move beyond diversity and inclusion to be places where the transforming gifts, voices, and power of marginalized cultures and groups bring new life to the mainline church. Each chapter is followed by discussion questions for use with small groups or for personal reflection. * Foreword by Stephanie Spellers * Core resource for discernment in living out baptismal promises * Empowers the laity for their ministries beyond the church doors * Study questions for small group discussion or individual reflection

The World As It Should Be

The kingdom of God is at hand, and you have a hand in bringing it about. Jesus' entire mission and ministry revolved around one key concept: the kingdom of God. But many, perhaps most, modern Christians misunderstand the term "kingdom of God." They see it as a synonym for heaven, solely as something that will transpire in the next life. They perceive it as "still to come" rather than "already begun." Through 30 short essays in The World as It Should Be, businessman, social-justice worker, and citizen organizer Greg Pierce sets out to help people reimagine the kingdom of God as Jesus originally intended—it is both heavenly and earthly, and because it is to come "on earth, as it is in heaven," each of us is called to roll up our shirtsleeves and help make this world the way it should be. The World as It Should Be emphasizes Jesus' own words and actions to help us explore what this kingdom might look like and the role each of us has to play in bringing it about. Pierce steers clear of offering specific solutions to difficult, often divisive, issues of public or social policy; rather, with the help of questions for reflection and dialogue with others, he encourages us to determine for ourselves the actions we should take to bring about a better world—the kingdom of God that Jesus so passionately proclaimed.

Engage your passion to be the one that makes a difference. Whether you are a CEO, housewife, student, manager, or church leader, you have a circle of influence and the ability to shape your culture for God’s purpose--to be a change agent. Os Hillman explains the process God uses to raise up His change agents in culture, demonstrated in biblical leaders like David, Daniel, Esther, and Moses. With details from his own experiences and profiles of modern-day change agents, Hillman shows how you too can have greater influence no matter what your age or status in life. Our culture is shaped by the seven mountains of cultural influence: business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family, and the church. Featuring a chapter on each of the seven cultural mountains, Change Agent describes where we are, what we must do to influence these strategic areas, and what success will ultimately look like.

Do you feel like you've been missing out on the abundant life? Most people do. If you take a look at the life of Jesus, you see that he called his disciples to follow him - on a physical journey, not just a spiritual one. Hundreds of books talk about our faith walk as a journey. But few delve into the subject of how a physical journey can reinvent and revitalize our spiritual journey with God. Kingdom Journeys is about the journeys we all take, presented in a series of "initiation steps" by disciples who are taking serious the call to leave everything and simply "go." This book is an exploration of an ancient spiritual discipline we must recover - if we're going to truly follow Jesus.
