The Blueprint For Reaching the World

IF:Gathering 2017


In this 36-minute session from the 2017 IF:Gathering, Rebekah Lyons and Vivian Mabuni open the book of Acts to examine Stephen’s and Cornelius’s stories. We have been given everything we need to share the gospel. Stop waiting for someone more trained and eloquent to speak—you speak.


Rebekah Lyons is the author of Freefall to Fly: A Breathtaking Journey Toward a Life of Meaning. She and her husband, Gabe, are the co-founders of Q Ideas, a nonprofit organization that teaches Christian leaders to winsomely engage culture. Gabe and Rebekah live in Nashville, Tennessee, with their three children.


Vivian Mabuni is a writer, mother, speaker, and cancer survivor. She is the author of Warrior in Pink: A Story of Cancer, Community, and the God Who Comforts. Vivian and her husband, Darrin, have been on staff with Cru for over twenty five years. They serve in Epic Movement, the Asian-American ministry of Cru, and live in California with their three children.

Like Jesus, we are to invest our lives into others who turn around and invest their lives into others. This is how the Kingdom exponentially multiplies.
