With Scripture, stories and practical examples, this webinar will explore how every Christian/follower of Jesus can be on God’s mission right where they live by 1) recognizing that God is in the neighbourhood; at work in our neighbours, 2) keeping the 2nd greatest commandment loving their neighbours; and 3) being the Kingdom of God come near. It concludes with some M-E-S-S-Y suggestions for pastors and other Christian leaders who want to equip and send their people to bear witness by being good neighbours.
