Six Habits of Missional Engagement for Households

I’d like to invite you to take part in an informational session about the course I’m going to be teaching soon called Six Habits of Missional Engagement for Households. It’s all about developing the habits which allow a family to participate in God’s mission.

The course will be taught in connection with the New Wilmington Mission Conference, which is being held online this year. On Monday, July 20 at 7:00 PM Eastern time, (6:00 PM Central / 5:00 PM Mountain / 4:00 PM Pacific) I will be conducting an informational session for those who are interested in this course.

God has created families for the purpose of His mission. In the first chapter of Genesis, we read that God created man in His own image, male and female He created them. In the mathematics of God’s creation, one does not exist without two. For any person to exist, two others are required. It’s not just about biology, but it’s theology. This is the meaning of being created in His image – not alone. From the beginning of creation, God envisioned family. As soon as had He created them, He commissioned them “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth.” From the very beginning families were designed and appointed for mission. After His resurrection, Jesus commanded his disciples “As the Father sent me, even so I send you.” This was not a new mission, but a refocusing, an upward transformation of the mission that was given in the beginning. What began in the first chapter of the Bible, continues through the followers of Jesus.

We’ve created a short video to tell about this course. You can view it by clicking on this link: Introduction – Six Habits of Missional Engagement for Households.

Who should consider taking this course? Families with children, grandparents, pastors who would like to teach families to participate in God’s mission, mission pastors, anyone who would like to grow more deeply involved in God’s mission and help others do the same. The schedule for our online sessions will be:

Sundays, July 26-August 16 from 5:00-6:30 Eastern Time
Wednesday July 29-August 19 7:00 to 8:30 PM Eastern Time

    So thankful for this course! I was really excited and inspired by the conversations and materials. Our family is having a better devotion time now. My younger children enjoyed hearing some of the ideas during the course as well, and learning some new songs from other countries. They liked the crafts and encouragement to think of others with their prayers and giving. I love thinking about books that help us to broaden our mindset and think more globally. Would recommend this for families who want some fresh ideas or even just reminders for ways to grow and habits to tweak. Thank you for providing this opportunity!
