Life on Mission is a rich but simple guide that will help everyday missionaries (electricians, lawyers, church planters, students, etc.) in the areas of gospel and mission, which will lead to an effective ministry within one's own community. The content is adaptable to any context and can function well as an individual study or within a small group environment. Life on Mission not only delivers a robust gospel base with daily mission practices, but is threaded with engaging stories and powerful questions that help individuals to take their next steps to living life on mission.

Reformed review1 Stars Out Of 5Life on Mission is weakFebruary 12, 2015Reformed reviewQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1If you want to watch video segments of "hipster" preachers telling you that you must develop relationships with people prior to sharing the gospel, this study is for you. If you want to be told that you must live a lifestyle that causes others to ask you about Jesus, instead of going to them, this study is for you.
Friendship evangelism, which is what this study espouses, is without Biblical support. Friendships, relationships, and living good lives for others to see do not produce salvation. To suggest that relationships are necessary in order to share the gospel is wrong.
Chris4 Stars Out Of 5Great ReminderFebruary 5, 2015ChrisQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Too often we get the greatest gift, then forget what to do with it. This book presents many good ideas on getting started on intentional living.............something we should all be doing. The light on the hill is not supposed to be under the bed where no one can see it, but shared with everyone to help them see.
We all have been given much - what have you done with what you were given?
DiscipleMom LauraTXAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Learn how to be an everyday missionaryJuly 7, 2014DiscipleMom LauraTXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you're tired of living a hum-drum, every-day-the-same life, join authors Dustin Willis and Aaron Coe on a journey toward intentional living in their new book Life on Mission: Joining the Everyday Mission of God. They challenge readers to be everyday missionaries saying, "Everyday missionaries are those who practice life on mission where God has placed them."
For those who have served as career missionaries, this book presents nothing new. But for those who have long thought that missions is for hired holy people, Life on Mission challenges their foundational beliefs about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and how to live that out. Willis and Coe tell readers, "When we combine our natural rhythms or passions with the gospel and use them to build relationships, powerful things can happen. Our passions or placement (where we live, where we go) can help us identify opportunities for sharing the gospel."
Life on Mission is interactive with questions for deeper Bible study and application sprinkled throughout. In addition, the authors present a true picture of lostness in America and show readers the real need for Jesus. Willis and Coe lead readers to explore the biblical foundations for everyday missions, and then they address missions practices, giving practical suggestions and real-life examples. Finally, they include a short chapter that helps readers think through potential ministry pitfalls.
One of the best things about the book is the leader's guide at the back. It includes a six-week reading plan along with chapter highlights and discussion questions making it perfect for small groups to explore together as they learn to live as everyday missionaries. I highly recommend Life on Mission for anyone who wants to be a disciple who makes disciples, who wants to live out their faith in the rhythms of daily life.
