Mission is not just the task of one committee in the congregation or one line item on the church budget. Mission is our response to Jesus' call to serve the least, last, and lost in his name. Mike Slaughter's book, Change the World: Recovering the Message and Mission of Jesus
, helped leaders examine various areas of church life to show how worship, education, fellowship, budget, facilities, and more all play a part in orienting our congregations toward global mission.
In this four-session video resource, Mike Slaughter guides leaders in visioning for themselves ways to transform their congregation of believers into a movement of disciples living out Jesus' mission in the world. Use this program for a weekend intensive leadership retreat or a four-week study for pastors, staff, lay committee members, and other key congregational decision-makers. Together you can lead your congregation to focus its time, its energy, and its budget to work for real change in a hurting world.

1. Embracing the Mission (12:27)
