Ephesians 4:11-13 (ESV)

11And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers,12to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,13until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,

Outside of events for service, there is also an everyday missional posture that every Christian should adopt. Answer this question from Dhati. "How do we, as a family, be on mission and develop our habits, rhythms and lifestyles so that we have a life on mission?"

God never called us to huddle within the church walls and keep the gospel to ourselves. Think about Dhati's example and work to incorporate mission into the life of your congregation and your family.
