Radical Sending: Go to Love and Serve complements Stephanie Spelllers’s Radical Welcome (“come”) with the GO. The go is not congregation-centered outreach or mission work, but “equipping the saints for ministry,” (Eph 4:12) in their individually daily lives of family, community and work. It focuses on the congregation as the all important base camp, the watering hole, the launching pad for the Baptized in living into their faith in life.
The book offers
- A view of the local congregation as a base camp- existing to prepare, affirm, support, equip the “hikers,” the Baptized for their journeys in the world.
- Stories of congregations and individuals who see ministry in daily life as their focus.
- Resources to support congregations that choose to move toward being a base camp for their members.
