The mission of God has a church. So the church needs to be in sync with the mission of God. This is the guiding philosophy of the Forge Missions Training Network, which has helped church leaders and laypeople alike all over the world to reach their neighbors, their neighborhoods and their communities with the gospel. In these guides you and your friends will be equipped to be missionaries where you are—which is why God has a church in the first place.

In Vision: Living Under the Promises of God you and your friends will explore the role of the future on our theology of everyday living—our decision making, our action taking, our life and faith sharing. The more we believe in and hope for what God has declared he will accomplish in the world, you'll discover, the more we will be motivated to organize our lives around God's mission.
