In church, we talk about the commission Jesus gave for us to bring the Good News to the ends of the earth. Readers of the New Testament would also quickly affirm that this Good News is carried forth in our words and our actions. As Christians trying our best to live faithful lives in today’s world, we have to ask ourselves: How am I to speak the Good News? and, How am I to act the Good News? Through ministries of mission and advocacy, people of faith and moral conscience are equipped to be both doers and speakers of good news. This breakout session will share stories from congregations that are exploring these ministries and will provide tips and best practices learned along the way. Come and join the conversation!
Facilitated by Rev. Chrissy Williamson, Pastor of Greystone Baptist Church, Raleigh, NC
