Mobilizers – Preparing a People for Eternity

Mobilizers – Preparing a People for Eternity

This ‘age’ is as much about the perfecting of the Church as it is about making disciples of all nations! An idea, we Mobilizers, often neglect at our peril! These two great themes run like parallel tracks throughout scripture! God taking out of the world a people for His name (Ac 15: 13-18) and God perfecting […]

Interpreting Scripture in the Context of Mission

Interpreting Scripture in the Context of Mission

Scripture must be interpreted in the context of mission! Wow, quite a statement, and one that not all seminary professors might be comfortable with, nor most pastors, I would hasten to add! In fact, I would surmise that the vast majority of church leaders today, regardless of their field of leadership, would quite possibly find […]

Mobilization – As a Journey

Mobilization – As a Journey

Mobilization is a journey, not an event.   Seminars, courses and other mobilization programs are the events. The journey into active and fruitful participation in the world Christian movement is a journey that demands many ‘events’  and a lot of personal processing of what these events provide, in the form of new information and challenges. […]

Understanding the Nature of Missions Today

Understanding the Nature of Missions Today

Never before in mission history has the world existed as it does today – never before have the opportunities for harvest been so favorable, and never before has the need for mobilization been so urgent! Through the amazing efforts of the missionaries laboring in the first and second eras of the modern missionary movement (1792 – […]

Critical Issues: Defining ‘Mission’ and Mission Terms

Critical Issues: Defining ‘Mission’ and Mission Terms

The word ‘mission’ has been defined “both by theology and context. The context, for the past two hundred years, has been the ‘modern missionary movement’ that began, developed and grew during the Colonial period of world history. This period has shaped much of the way we have interpreted biblical passages that speak of the ‘mission […]

The Things That MUST HAPPEN Before The Lord Will Return

The Things That MUST HAPPEN Before The Lord Will Return

Personally, I have never believed the second coming of Christ depended on the arrival of a fixed date. That is not to say that God, in His infinite knowledge, doesn’t know the exact day when Jesus will return (Ac 1:7). THAT DAY, I believe, is determined far more by the fulfillment of God’s purposes than […]

Is this the Most Inspired Idea to Accelerate Missions Today?

Is this the Most Inspired Idea to Accelerate Missions Today?

The world Christian movement is my term of choice to describe God’s agenda for this age and therefore the Church’s all consuming occupation on planet earth!  World means it is a global, Christian means it is all to do with Christ’s Kingdom and movement refers to the spread and advance of Christ’s Kingdom in ever widening circles to […]

The World Christian Movement – A Double Edged Sword

The World Christian Movement – A Double Edged Sword

Who really benefits from the world Christian movement? Well, of course the unreached and the unsaved do! They get the chance to hear the ‘good news’, respond, and experience the fulfillment to their spiritual search both as a ‘people’ and as a person!  But have you ever wondered why God entrusted the Great Commission to […]

Mobilizers and the ‘Go’ in the Great Commission

Mobilizers and the ‘Go’ in the Great Commission

Peter Wagner points out that the main verb in the Great Commission is ‘make disciples’ (Mt 28:18-20). However the first verb to appear in the Great Commission is ‘GO! Making disciples, of all nations, for sure, is not possible without the ‘going’. For apostles/ charged with taking the gospel to regions beyond/ this is never […]
