Driscoll & Chester on Missional Church

I have just come across some fantastic material from the Redeem Cities Conference a couple of months ago, thanks to my brother Rich, and I thought I would share it on the blog. It is worth keeping in mind that the talks were spoken to a crowd of majority pastors and church planters but I think there are many lessons in there for Christian men and women in any role within a local church. I was particularly struck by Mark Driscoll’s first session on the four vital components of church – Reformed Theology, Complementarian Relationships, Spirit Filled Lives and Missional. He unpacks it very well indeed.

Then Tim Chester speaks about the way mission should happen in churches from 1 Peter 2. Evangelism is not first and foremost an exercise that brings non-Christians back to church, but rather Christians living holy lives to the glory God outside of the church meeting.

Anyway, they are brilliant lectures. Watch them if you can.
