Glenn Smith on Urban Mission

The December 2009 Connecting Point ENewsletter from the Lausanne Movement (available here) links to a relatively short article by Glenn Smith on ‘God’s Global Urban Mission in an Era of the Autonomous Self and Globalization’.

His fourfold agenda for urban churches revolves around these four points:

1. The local congregation as the entity that interprets the triune God to the neighbourhood

2. Bearing witness to the God of Jesus Christ and all his teachings

3. Pursuing spiritual formation, church education, and discipleship

4. Preaching and teaching to bring together heart and head

He provides fuller theological background here.
