Missional Communities

Journey to the Tangible Kingdom

After his resurrection, Jesus "showed up" among his disciples and set before them this mission: "As the Father has sent me, I am now sending you" (John 20:21). The Father sent Jesus: mission accomplished. Jesus sends his church: mission in process. Jesus is sending us, his Church, into the world as an "incarnational community." What does that mean? It means living on mission together—engaging the lives of our neighbors in ways that make God’s Kingdom of love and hope tangible. That's the adventure of following Jesus that we get to live. Becoming an incarnational community is the focus of this new five-episode online curriculum at your own pace, with your small group, big group, or on your own. Intrigued? Join in.
