Over the past ten years we’ve explored what it means to be missional in many contexts. Urban and suburban churches. Large and small congregations. Shiny newly-built communities and historic neighborhoods where relationships have spanned generations. In no particular order, these are some of the vital lessons for missional leaders we’ve learned over the last 10 years!
Over the next few posts we will be looking specifically at Families and their role within gospel increase. This is an important aspect of Look In because it requires an introspective review of what God has already placed right in front of you to help guide, nourish, and cherish. As a Father or a Mother, your role and how you understand its position is actually vital to making disciples.
Increasing our Gospel Footprint is sometimes neglected in our closest contexts, namely, our own families. We can forget that we not only have the responsibility to our loved ones, but also that a family can have a purpose and a mission to bring light to the community and to future generations. Our definition of family matters immensely because it shapes the way that we minister to and with our spouse and children.
