What does it mean to be a disciple on mission? Oliver Hersey and Jeff Klein, Pastor of Outreach at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church explore this question. Consider the triangle of discipleship which has three essential parts: up, in and out. Focusing "in" is often the easiest part of discipleship. But we have to go "out" in the world, to be on mission for Jesus. In this episode, Jeff talks about his church incorporates outreach into their gatherings, every 30 days. He said "Jesus was concerned about two groups of people, the lost and the least." Healing the world might be as simple as walking across the drive way to talk to your neighbor, or it might mean helping a homeless person find a place to live. We're inspired by John 20:21 (ESV) "Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
