Mission Beyond the Parish

Dave “The Body” VanVickle and I reunite to discuss mission beyond the parish and the responsibility of being on mission that every disciple of Christ has. The laity must not be afraid to step out of their comfort zone and go beyond the parish to share Jesus Christ with others.

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


Shownotes

We desperately need a movement of lay evangelists who understand the urgency of mission and aren’t afraid to bring Jesus into the world.
