God is on mission to do something in this world He's created. As part of that, God's mission has a church. I appreciate how J.D. Greear brings out what this "mission of God" or missio Dei means for the church in this SHORT (less than four minutes) video. J.D. Greear is lead pastor of The Summit Church in North Carolina and author of the recently-released Gaining by Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches that Send.
Specifically, listen for what he has to say about how "winning a church to God's mission" involves (1) an understanding of the "sending" nature of the gospel, (2) an understanding of the mission-empowering work of the Holy Spirit, and (3) celebrating what God is doing through the church on mission.
