This book by Jeff Allen and 3DM Publishing celebrates the blessing of being a part of a small church on a BIG Mission.
I am blessed to serve as a pastor of a relatively small church that happens to be a part of one of the mainline denominational groups (Reformed Church in America). The journey of being pastor has been far from easy (as the book confesses), yet it has also been a journey filled with blessings that I could never have imagined decades ago—blessings that have helped me celebrate that I am a part of a small church on a Big Mission.
This book is a journal of discovery sharing practical principles of discipleship and mission personally applied as a disciple and leader within a small church on a Big Mission.
This book is divided into three sections reflecting my journey of Personal Transformation, the Practical Realities encountered along the journey that many have asked me to share, and the Purposeful Direction undertaken together with other leaders in our context as a small church on a Big Mission.
Each chapter begins with a story from my journal of discovery followed by helpful resources and tools that have been applied in this topic. Each chapter concludes with a few questions for personal reflection and discovery as you consider taking steps in your own context.
A small church on a BIG Mission is a book that embodies its own message: it packs a BIG payoff into a small volume! Pastor, discipler, and missional leader Jeff Allen offers practical resources and proven strategies, drawing on his own experience of transitioning a smaller established church into a community of disciples who are living beyond themselves as a Family on Mission.
