Today there are more churches in the world than ever, and yet more brokenness, poverty, corruption, and despair. Why?
In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus gives his marching orders to the Church: make disciples of all nations! Today, the Church has largely misunderstood this task with tragic consequences. For many, “making disciples of all nations” is reduced to the critical tasks of saving souls and planting churches. While not wrong, this understanding is incomplete. You cannot have discipled nations without regenerated individuals, you can have saved souls without discipled nations!
Hope for the nations comes when the Church is re-envisioned to understand her indispensible task and functions accordingly–and it’s happening! Today, Africa is rising as the rapidly expanding Church embraces her role as Kingdom change-agent, bringing healing to the broken nations of the continent. Could we experience the same renewal and restoration here in North America? Yes!
In May, Disciple Nations Alliance will be hosting two Vision Casting events in the Phoenix area. We would love for anyone who is in Arizona to be able to make it to one of these trainings!
