Perspectives at Evergreen SGV on Palm Sunday

Missional thinkers are unanimous that the role of church members is to be ambassadors for Christ in their circles of influence (Cole 2005, Guder 1998, Hirsch 2006, 2009; Kimball 2007, Mallory 2001, Minatrea 2004). “A person who does not believe every disciple of Jesus Christ is sent by Him into the world rejects the essence of the missional church. The person must then believe that only select ones are sent by Christ on mission” (Minatrea, 2004, p. 79). But the process of developing church members into effective spiritual ambassadors is far from automatic. “The church by definition is the greatest gathering of potential servants in the world, but she is also the most notorious vehicle for disappointing, discouraging, and even destroying them” (Sue Mallory, 2001, p. 37).

My passion is to see believers in Christ become followers of Christ who become ambassadors of reconciliation for Christ wherever Christ places them. Gonna have a blast tomorrow even with the two physical things I’m dealing with right now.
