One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him.

Mark 1:16-18

The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit.

John 20:20-22

19 by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ. 20 It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.21 Rather, as it is written: “Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.” Romans 15

“If your shelves are overloaded with books on how to do mission and evangelism, create some space to engage with this book. No to-do lists. No win-win strategies. Instead, this discerning book reflects on the inner resources and attitudes of mind required to engage in mission in a post-modern, pluralist society.”

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28

“…every church should be able to answer two questions: First, what is our plan for making disciples? Second, does our plan work?”
