About "Is Everything Mission?"
Is everything a Christian does `mission', or does it only count when we speak about Jesus and share the gospel? Does mission include volunteering at the food bank, campaigning for justice and providing aid overseas? As the needs around us multiply and opposition to the gospel intensifies, this question `Is everything mission?' becomes even more important for us to wrestle with. Tim Chester's 2018 Keswick Convention lecture helps us unpack what mission is and the role that God wants you, your church, your mission agency, to play.
