Mission is needed because there are not enough people worshipping God here on earth. As a result, the missional life, adopting the lifestyle of a missionary, wherever one lives, works, and plays is what a life on mission looks like. Around the world, it entails sending people as international missionaries, developing long-term partnerships with nationals, and providing opportunities to engage in mission around the world. In the city, it starts with loving neighbors, knowing your co-workers, and culminates in living on mission with other believers. So that each Christ follower might earn the opportunity to be heard and make the Gospel known.
