Surprise — If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, he’d call you a missionary!
You may never go halfway around the world, but because of God’s work in you, you are on mission. As everyday missionaries, God has sent us to live out his Great Commission in the ordinary, all-too-busy, and even mundane moments of our lives.
But what does an everyday missionary do?
Where and when does everyday mission happen?
How can you possibly share the gospel – without killing your relationships?
Ben Connelly, author of Field Guide for Everyday Mission, will lead this 3-hour training with lots of practical ways to show and share the gospel with those around you. Duke and Caroline Revard will be hosting this event at their home and dinner will be provided. Please RSVP on Eventbrite and bring $10 to the door to cover the cost of food for this training. Childcare will not be provided, so please arrange for this with your MC.

Endorsements for Ben Connelly’s book:
“If you find that “missional talk” can be a bit vague then this is the book for you. It’s an accessible guide to missional thinking. But even better, it will help put it into practice. It will show you what everyday mission can actually look like. Not every one of their 101 ideas will apply in your situation, but many of them will.”
-Tim Chester, Director, The Porterbrook Network, and author, A Meal With Jesus
“Bob Roberts and Ben Connelly have given the local church an incredibly helpful and practical guide to doing mission that will equip everyone from the seasoned practitioner to the brand new believer. It is simple and straightforward, yet it has the power to change both your neighborhood and the world for Christ.”
-Matt Carter, Pastor of Preaching & Vision, The Austin Stone Community Church, and co-author, The Real Win
