Dave Ferguson discusses the question “What is the mission of Jesus?”
He says, “I think there’s a lot of talk about mission, but I think it’s still confusing about what exactly is the Jesus mission. For example some people, and even here, are going to talk about community transformation and community development…Other people talk about evangelism and say that’s the Jesus mission. And if you were to ask me what’s the mission I couldn’t help but talk about movement. We have to have a movement. So, what is the mission? We’ve spent a couple of years on theology, on formation, on identity. But we also wanted it to be something that we could actually teach that was something simple, reproducible, and easily explained. We conclude that the Jesus mission can be shared in this diagram with these three words….Reach, Restore, and Reproduce!”
