Freeing Congregational Mission addresses a deepening crisis in mission as practiced by North American congregations. Many mission activities are more effective at satisfying church members than making a lasting difference, producing what’s too often consumer-oriented “selfie mission.” These practices are not just ineffective—they deviate from mission in the way of Jesus. The book proposes a theology of companionship focused on relationships that up-end societal expectations; the kind of cultural humility evidenced by Jesus; and the insights of co-development.
The book is designed to provide a theoretical framework, practical strategies and tools to congregational mission leaders, that is, the lay and ordained leaders of U.S. evangelical, Catholic and mainline Protestant congregations’ who seek to lead their congregations into mission.
