MAIN SESSION 3: Going into ALL the World Together
Together as a Church: Living in togetherness is always a part of following Jesus. It wasn't optional for Jesus. It wasn't optional for the first apostles. It wasn't optional for the first Christians, and it's not optional for us! The church was designed to be God's eternal community where we experience reconciliation with Him and with others. Too many church leaders are leading churches but are not really a part of those churches. For us to fulfill the Great Collaboration we must be church leaders who live in togetherness and lead in togetherness with our churches. Together as a Network: When church leaders come together to form networks, they discover the missing piece of movement. This requires leaders and churches working to advance God's Kingdom and not creating their own kingdom. When leaders work and live together in unity, it is a missional strategy that will reach the least and the lost. (John 17:21b-23)
