Mark Driscoll Defines Reformission
May 26, 2006 by
Musings of a Missional Madman has a great quote: “‘Reformission is a radical call to reform the church’s traditionally flawed view of missions as something carried out in foreign lands, and to focus instead on the urgent need in our own neighborhoods, which are filled with diverse cultures of Americans who desperately need the Gospel of Jesus and life in his Church. Most significant, they need a gospel and a church who are faithful both to the scriptural texts and to the cultural contexts of America . . . . What I am advocating is not an abandonment of missions across the globe, but rather an emphasis on missions that begins across the street, like Jesus commanded.” (Acts 1:8) – Mark Driscoll, The Radical Reformission.
