The same Mission for
a New Context
An invitation to participate in God’s mission through listening, learning, and acting.
The world has changed significantly but many congregations feel lost. We have experienced the grief of not knowing how to effectively engage everyday Australians with the gospel. Yet while Australians are asking different questions, are experiencing different challenges and are living differently to how they once were, the habits and practices of many churches still reflect the world that once was. When it comes to effectively engaging God’s mission in the world, the methods the church once used are largely irrelevant. Though there are no experts for this next navigational challenge, the tools are available to us.
God has always invited his people on a transformational journey. His mission for the church is to be a foretaste of God’s Kingdom. At Ecclesia Leadership, our missional experiment process does just this, inviting the church into an adventure of discovery.
Jesus sent his disciples into a world where they were like lambs among wolves. As church people, we are used to being the ones in control. Jesus now invites us on a vulnerable journey, one where we need the support of each other and of God.
Our contemporary missional context presents unique ministry challenges and demands. What do we as the church carry forward in this new age?
