Mission spirituality is the experience of God, lived as Christ centred persons in community, through the power of the Holy Spirit for witness and service, as we participate in God’s mission of transforming the whole creation.

In this seminar, we will introduce the concepts of “Five Marks of Mission” and “Mission Spirituality” and explore how missional spirituality and lifestyles can contribute to the growth of God’s kingdom over every aspect of family, local church and Asian society. We will conclude with the biblical concept of “prophetic leadership” that enable local churches to engage with some of the challenges in Malaysian society today.

The seminar is designed for Christians interested in how to “live the abundant life” (John 10:10) through skillful means (Ecclesiastes 10:10), which result in a more wholesome discipleship in non Christian contexts.
