DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD, but feel overwhelmed by all there is to do? Do you sometimes doubt that significant change is even possible? There is good news. God isn’t worried about the future of the world, nor is God merely bringing minor changes. “Behold, I make all things new,” says the Lord. The coming kingdom brings total transformation, metamorphosis. What’s more, God doesn’t call us to carry the burdens of the world and its transformation on our own shoulders. Christ carries the world and by the power of the Spirit we live in Christ.

 We do not have a mission for God in the world. Rather, the God of mission has us in the world.

Each of us has a vital role in the world. We are invited to participate in God’s generous love bringing heaven to earth through us, now!

The seven sessions of BEYOND Duty guide individuals, groups and churches to our places as participants in God’s mission in the world.
