2017 ACNA PROVINCIAL ASSEMBLY MEDIA

In our globalized era, in order to fulfill our calling as Christ’s followers to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:19), we no longer have to “go” very far. Individuals and communities from far across the globe find and make their homes alongside our own. Now more than ever- on our campuses, in our urban cities, suburbs and rural towns- do we have the incredible opportunity to minister to and share the good news of the Gospel with those of diverse national backgrounds.

 

In June 2017, the ACNA gathered as a Province for a conference titled “Mission on our Doorstep” in which speakers and participants explored this theme, asking the question: what the contours and possibilities of global mission in our local, everyday contexts?

 

The heart of the Diocese of Christ our Hope is to explore and lean into this question jointly with the clergy and laypersons in our parishes. As a resource to help equip us in this, several sessions from the ACNA Provincial Assembly have been made available on our website for online streaming. These sessions were selected by Bishop Steve as ones that might be of particular value in engaging with this theme. They offer insights from the perspectives of pastoral ministry, theology, and church-planting, providing practical and philosophical strategies alike for taking our disciple-making mission to the many different neighbors in our midst.
