Mission Bridge Metaphors: Towards a More Joyful and Hopeful Approach to Mission

The Bible reveals to us the grand narrative of God's Mission to redeem the world. It also speaks about our mission as Christians. What's the link or bridge between the two and how does the Bible talk about that connection? Together we will discover and examine various "Mission Bridge Metaphors" and consider how each shapes our view of our mission and purpose in life. Prepare to go far beyond the Great Commission of Matthew 28 in search of a much more nuanced (and joyful and hopeful!) view of our mission.
