The Lord calls each of us to follow him in his mission to the world he loves. There are many ways to do this, and our own calling will be shaped around our personalities, histories and opportunities.
We are living in an exciting time when there are more and more opportunities to be involved in God’s mission through church planting, pioneering, a fresh expression of church. Church leadership is also increasingly varied – some are called to be ordained, others to lead and be involved in pioneering and leadership teams as lay volunteers, or in conjunction with other paid jobs.
We often go on something of a journey to find out and to clarify just what it is the Lord is calling us to be involved in. It is helpful to do this with a mixture of informed input, opportunity to pray and reflect, and to do so with others on a similar season of discovery and exploration.
Would it be helpful to explore the Lord’s calling for you with regard to church planting and pioneering?
