The Globally Engaged Local Church

OnMission 2017


There has been a shift in missions, and we must rethink the Great Commission. For years, the western world has sought to reach the rest of the world, but now, God is moving in a different way. In this video from OnMission 2017, Christian Mungai, a native Kenyan who serves as the Global Engagement Pastor at Mariners Church in California, shares the opportunity we have to engage the nations who have been dispersed to our own backyard. 


Christian Mungai, a native Kenyan, serves as the Global Engagement Pastor at Mariners Church in Irvine, California, where he is passionate about deploying the Church into what God is doing around the world. Christian was previously a member of the urban Gospel and humanitarian singing group, Milele. The group, originally started as a celebration of God through music, eventually became a vehicle through which to carry out Kingdom work. Christian and his wife, Delta, have one child, and live in California.

God has called His Church to be change agents in the world. As He has dispersed people across the earth, we must engage the nations in our backyard with the gospel.
