Day 2: Missional Christmas

Two Missional Opportunities

The appearance of Jesus in the stable that night long ago begged the question which has been discussed and proclaimed ever since then: So, why did Jesus come? What was the mission for which he was sent? Why was he here? Luke writes about his return to Nazareth where he read from the scroll of Isaiah:

At Missional University we believe that today’s followers of Jesus have opportunities to replicate the incarnational mission of Jesus by what they say and what they do. Our courses and programs are designed to train everyday ordinary believers to serve in faith-based organizations and in community service where they meet people at the point of their human need. Won’t you join us in equipping Christians to serve in the mission of God? Check out five types of partner organizations where students may serve.
