I had a blast co-teaching with Mary Jo Wilson, Asian Access vice president for missional engagement, these last two weeks in South Asia! She did a great job as you can see captured in these photos…
Mary Jo led the pastors through a culture game that had everyone actively engaged and experiencing a taste of how difficult it is to operate in another culture. Watching the pastors try to figure out each others tribes was hilarious. Some even resorted to fighting, practically speaking.
Then she spoke further about mission strategy as you’ll see in these other photos. The slide on the value of discipleship and multiplication gave a poignant example of the importance of making disciples rather than simply focusing on conversions. Over time, the impact of disciple making movements is powerful!
Then, she showed an excellent illustration highlighting our core value of being ALL IN with God. She used the cycle of grace verses the cycle of works where we gain life through focusing on Jesus before we engage in ministry. I’m eager to learn more about Cycles of Grace.
Great job, Mary Jo! What an inspirational week in South Asia...
