God's mission is for everyone, every day.

In the midst of societal disruption and disillusionment, we're seeing signs of a new season of God bringing people into renewal and revival. Jesus is the Sent One who invites us to become like him and live as sent people. God is leading us into a new normal where all of us—not just the professionals—can encounter him and experience his work.

Apostolic mission leaders Linson Daniel, Jon Hietbrink, and Eric Rafferty reveal God's invitation into everyday mission in the way of Jesus. Though Christians may be discouraged by various challenges, this season holds opportunities for experiencing God's movement in fresh ways among unlikely people.

With biblical insights into how Jesus and the early church lived, the authors invite us into four Es of reviving mission:

  • Encountering God
  • Exploring what he's doing all around us
  • Empowering those he sends us to, and
  • Establishing communal rhythms of transforming habits and habitats.

This model of holistic mission brings together the person of God, postures of redemption, and practices of engagement in a way that equips ordinary people for transformation and renewal.

God's mission revives us as sent ones and the communities we are sent to. Come and be awakened to his everyday movement all around you.

"Is God doing a new thing? Linson Daniel, Jon Hietbrink, and Eric Rafferty dare to say that he is! And they are correct. In Reviving Mission, they invite the reader into a renewed wonder and enchantment of a God who is moving toward creation and inviting it into the intimate love of God. This book made me want to be a missionary again. Not somewhere else. But right here."

A.J. Swoboda, associate professor of Bible and theology at Bushnell University in Eugene, Oregon, and author of The Gift of Thorns
