I Want to Be Your Mission Pastor. Every church can afford me because we work based on your budget. Why does it matter? Every church can improve its missional serve. Every church can take the next step. Having a mission pastor will make the next step much easier. Emil Bruner wrote in 1931, The Word and the World.
H1:The Word and the World
“The Word of God which was given in Jesus Christ is a unique historical fact, and everything Christian is dependent on it; hence every one who receives this Word, and by it salvation, receives along with it the duty of passing this Word on; just as a man who might have discovered a remedy for cancer which saved himself, would be in duty bound to make this remedy accessible to all. Mission work does not arise from any arrogance in the Christian Church; mission is its cause and its life. The Church exists by mission, just as a fire exists by burning. Where there is no mission, there is no Church; and where there is neither Church nor mission, there is no faith. It is a secondary question whether by that we mean Foreign Missions, or simply the preaching of the Gospel in the home Church. Mission, Gospel preaching, is the spreading out of the fire which Christ has thrown upon the earth. He who does not propagate this fire shows that he is not burning. He who burns propagates the fire. This ‘must’ is both things – an urge and a command. An urge, because living faith feels God’s purpose as its own. ‘Woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel,’ says Paul. Necessity is laid upon him. But also he ought to preach; with the gift he receives the obligation. ‘Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel’. Whether Christ’s command was uttered just in these words, we do not know exactly. But there can be no doubt that He had sent out His disciples with the strict order to preach the gospel of the Kingdom to all the world. Even if Jesus had not done that, it would still be a divine command for every one who receives the message; for he knows that the divine remedy must be made accessible to all. The classical expression for this propagating activity is not doctrine but kerygma, i.e., the herald’s call. The herald, the keryx, is a man who in the market-place of a city promulgates the latest decree of the king. He is the living publicity organ of the sovereign’s will. The herald makes known what no one could know before: what the king has decreed. It is just this that the Apostles meant by kerygma. They brought not only good tidings, but new tidings as well”
H2: I want to be your Mission Pastor. I know, you are thinking, we cannot afford one, and if we could we would already have one. But you can afford me. I will custom design a consulting, coaching, equipping, or whatever works best in your setting based on your budget.
I believe that Emil Bruner was right about the point that without mission you do not have a church. Every church has a missional DNA, that was a part of the birth of the church on the day of Pentecost. Let me help you and your church become missional. Let me help you release your Acts 1:8 DNA.Let’s talk. Call me at 803-269-3000 or email me at brad@ChurchUnleashedGlobal.org
