We as Christians are called to live behind enemy lines. We live in enemy occupied territory, but not enemy owned territory. We as the church must not become so inwardly focused that we forget our mission to walk alongside God in the expansion of his kingdom.
The mission trip to the DR was incredible. Rather than writing a recap, which I will do later, I am going to write the 5 major insights I learned on the mission trip as the team leader.
Did you know that originally, Church of Christ ministers were referred to as Evangelists? Evangelists, from the Greek word euangelion (εὐαγγέλιον if you want to get really Greek-nerdy) which stems from the Greek word meaning "good" (εὔ) and the verb meaning "I bring [a message]" (ἀγγέλλω).
