To claim to follow Christ denotes that the person is committed to the same passion that Christ modeled. For a person to say he is a Christian means that he is unabashedly pursuing the heart and mind of Christ. He has died to himself and now lives in Christ.
Christ was on mission. His goal was NOT to simply save people as an end in itself. The bigger goal of saving people was for the sake of God receiving glory - to have a people for Himself from every tribe, tongue and language. Christ modeled perfect obedience to this mission.
Being a Christian and being on Mission are inextricably linked. As John Piper rightly says in Let the Nations Be Glad, “Mission exists because Worship doesn’t.” The very essence of the Christian life is built around the assumption of pursuing the glory of God by spreading his fame throughout the earth.
But how do we do that?
THE RADIUS WORKSHOP is a 2.5 hour activity dedicated to answering this question in a practical and interactive way that students will understand. With hands-on, responsive activities, students will learn a biblical theology of mission through the use of creative education and practical application.
