The Forge Guides are full of simple but provocative questions that are designed to help groups become a transformative presence in any context.

Scott Nelson has given us a gem. If you want to live on mission with others in a way that is faithful to God, mindful of your context, with theological depth, then the Forge guides are for you. Get a group of people, start engaging these guides, and you will find the life you were meant to live!
cofounder, The Ecclesia Network, and author, Creating a Missional Culture
Most churches no longer need to be convinced to move outside the confines of the church building and engage in God's mission. What churches are now asking for are practical resources to activate congregations toward missional action. Scott Nelson's Forge Guides for Missional Conversation do just that. He has created a series of helpful tools that provides serious theological reflections along with practical steps in getting there. I cannot recommend these guides more highly to any group serious about engaging God's mission.

If we truly understood that we are missionaries wherever we live, it would absolutely change everything. That is not an understatement, and the Forge Guides for Missional Conversation guide us into exactly how to go about doing that.
author of They Like Jesus but Not the Church
The possibilities we can imagine for our life are largely determined by the assumptions we have adopted about what life is all about. For most people, these assumptions lead us away from being on mission everyday with God. Through the practice of tried-and-true spiritual disciplines done together in community, these guides will help people uncover those assumptions and renew their minds in light of what God's Word says life is all about, so they can begin to really live, think and act like missionaries in the places God has called them.
